Inspired by Scotland’s cosmopolitan capital, Tattu Edinburgh pays homage to the relationship between ‘traditional and contemporary’; complete with a Chinois-style interior that features intricate wooden fretwork, antique furnishings and chinoiserie fabric panelling partnered with polished marble walls and reflective finishes to provide a modern twist.

Occupying the ground and basement level of the newly refurbished Mint Building on West Register Street, the brothers behind the brand, Adam and Drew Jones, have invested in the regeneration of the prestigious development to create a space inspired by both the rich historic and contemporary characteristics of the city.

Tattu Edinburgh will welcome guests to dine under a tunnel of Sakura blossom, recreating the tranquillity of a Chinese garden setting. In the Far East, cherry blossom is a symbol of luck and good fortune – the trees are a signature element of each Tattu site, each one being unique in design.

To add a new twist to our Utah Anthracite for this latest restaurant, Tattu chose to have added embroidery detail on the leather seating, using Yarwood’s on-site embroidery service to add gold-threaded detail.

“Leather is a skin, which means it can be tattooed, so it’s a complementary material for us to use as part of brand’s overarching concept,” commented Adam Jones, MD of Tattu.

“We wanted to apply bespoke tattoos our furniture and chose ornate koi and dragon designs which are very prevalent in Chinese history in line with the ‘traditional meets contemporary’ design brief for the site. The gold embroidery looks classic and luxurious against the modern grey Yarwood Anthracite.”

“Leather is a material that features heavily in Tattu Manchester,” Adam added. “We wanted to continue using the material in Leeds but introduce a different aesthetic and texture for the new venue. We chose a dark marble for the floor and wanted to incorporate lighter elements that would offset the darker materials.

“When we saw a sample of how our ’T’ symbol could be debossed into the Utah leather, we knew this would give us that all-important detail and high-end finish. We have some hand-tooled leather in Manchester and this, for us, was another way to show how leather can be a canvas for tattoo work using a different technique to ensure it was unique to Leeds.”

Golden threads and intricate designs were chosen for seating throughout the space. Scroll down to see the embroidery in action.
