Gold Leaf

Laid down by hand, gold leaf lettering has a strong connection to maritime history. The tradition of gold leafing has carried its beauty throughout history & has proven classic through the test of time.

There are several tecniques for gold leaf, one of the most widely used is ‘engine turning’. Engine turned gold leaf is when soft fabric is pressed against the leaf and burnished in a circular motion to give it a scaled texture; this technique reflects water and natural sunlight beautifully.
