Leather Desk Pad - Desk Mat

leather desk padDo you find yourself uninspired as you sit at your boring work desk each day, staring at the same computer screen for hours on end? Sometimes it's the simplest little changes which can instantly lift your mood and transform the feelings you have towards your work. Little additions to your office desk, like an indoor pot plant, a photo of your loved ones, or adding a few stylish executive desk accessories like a beautiful handmade leather desk pad, are enough to give that extra little pep to your step.

Our executive desktop pad is a stylish twist on the classic desk mat. It feels decadent being made from 7-8 oz vegetable tanned bridle leather and looks stunning thanks to the beeswax burnished edges. Beyond looks, it's actually extremely useful too. At a size of 24" x 15", or 18" x 32" it's large enough to protect the main working area of your desk. It can be used as a desk blotter, a laptop and mouse pad, and provides a smooth and firm surface for writing on. The leather desk pad is rollable and is delivered in a cardboard tube.

If you're looking for a truly unique desk protector pad, you have the option of personalizing it in your favorite color. From a beautiful natural tan, to bright blue, pink, green or orange - you'll find a color to match your taste and personal style. We even have a leather mouse pad you can pair it with.

You can further personalize your luxury desk writing pad when placing your order with any combination of 3 characters printed on the front, bottom corner of the office desk mat. All you need to do is check the box for personalization on the product order page. Alternatively, if you're looking for custom desk pads for your business, you can place a bulk order that can imprinted with a company name, logo or larger images.

It may even inspire you to transform your entire work space with other stylish leather desk accessories to create a more relaxing atmosphere. After all, any extra bit of motivation is helpful when it comes to keeping you focused at work each day, right?

*You can use the desk pads on wooden surfaces like old wood writing desks, safely. There's no chemicals coming from tanning process to avoid damaging the wood surface finish.

How to choose the right leather desk pad?

Size

The first thing you need to decide when choosing a leather desk pad is its size. Usually, a small leather desk pad is sufficient for a 13"-14" laptop, mouse, and phone. For a 15" and above laptop or a desktop computer such as Imac, and some desk accessories we recommend using a large leather desk pad in size 18"x32".

Color

The choice of color is very personal. However, if you want it to look aesthetic in general, you can read our suggestions below. If you have a light-colored table such as white or oak, the brown leather desk pad will look very stylish by creating contrast. If you are going to use it on an antique or walnut wooden desk, you can use a black leather desk pad or a green-colored desk pad. Dark colors show fewer blemishes and marks, and light colors age with use and take on a pretty nice patina over time.

Leather Type

The last thing you need to decide on is the leather type. Crazy Horse leathers look distressed and age more than other leathers. These skins may have natural scars. Plain-colored leathers have a more solid color and texture.

Great quality product!

I received 18x32 one in brown leather and absolutely love it! Will be ordering another one in a different color.

Disappointed - Rough/Unfinished and Uneven Edges

I have many leather desk and mouse pads from other companies, but this was my first time purchasing one from Galen Leather. I got the Crazy Horse Forest Green Large size, the colour is nice, maybe just a little bit darker in person than shows here on the website. It is also not as thick as the leather desk pads I have from other places.

I was really looking forward to getting this but I am sadly disappointed in the finishing quality of this desk pad. There is NO WAY these have "beeswax burnished edges" as advertised. The edges are very rough/unfinished and not even straight, with ugly cut marks visible from the machine or tool which was used to cut the leather. (see attached pics). The unevenness of the edges in particular bothers me a lot, especially when next to leather desk pads from other companies. (one of the attached pictures shows a comparison with a leather pad that has a nice edge from another company). It was not cheap to get this either, particularly after currency conversion, taxes/duties, etc. so I would advise against anyone purchasing these desk pads due to the poor quality of the edges, especially if you plan to put this on a nice desk... look elsewhere and spend the extra money if needed - If this was a local purchase, I would return it.

The other two pouches in the "Crazy Horse Green" color are okay, but the "Crazy Horse Tan" desk pad color is horribly dirty. I had to wipe it off 5 times. I don't think the production process for green and tan colors is different, but this is a bit harsh.

It was one of my second orders. When I started my fountain pen life, I ordered a leather desk mat to change from the regular rubber mat to something more stylish. After all, the emotion that only natural leather gives is special. However, the wrinkle marks appear more severe in the folded direction than expected. I am hoping that the symptoms will decrease after applying the leather care cream I ordered. Still, I think the leather is really nice. However, it is very unfortunate that unlike the first order, there is no service gift for this second order. The product arrived just like the picture

A lovely addition to my work desk (Crazy Horse Tan Deskpad)

This was a wonderful surprise from my partner to me for Christmas. I have been a long time admirer of Galen leather products, but never took the plunge. I hereby consider this the gentle nudge I needed, and I will be looking into a few more items this coming year!

Package arrived without issue and was very securely wrapped, with an interesting little care package inside too from your team. Wonderful! Thank you so very much. 🙏💛

This desk mat is a delight. A wonderful texture and colour, good weight and size, and the embossed initials are a great touch of personalisation.

Beautiful Desk Pad

This is the perfect size for my desk, which is 31.5 inches wide. The leather takes oil beautifully and is developing a lovely patina.

Writer’s dream surface

The leather fest pad in Sacramento is the most delicious, buttery leather writing surface my finest pens have tasted. The wet ink is inkier and the monogram in the corner personalizes my personal space for the written word.
