Westmorland Sheepskins was started by Howard Heaton around 1980 in the old county of Westmorland in the North of England. This was the off shoot of a family business called ‘Heatons’ that had spanned over 130 years in Leeds and returned to North Leeds just a couple of years later.
Five generations of Heatons have now worked with, handled and traded in raw skins and materials. With that in mind we like to think we know what we are talking about.
This building is old Heatona House in Leeds which you can still see as a landmark building in the city. It was built especially for Heatons.
