ARTISAN LEAF® can be used on walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, decor and accent pieces.
There are four main varieties of tobacco leaves: Virginia/Flue-Cured, Burley, Cigar Leaf and Oriental. Differences in harvesting and curing method give each leaf it's unique characteristic.
We use Virginia/Flue-Cured, Burley, and Cigar Leaf for our main fabrication and the smaller Oriental leaf for accents.
Flue-cured tobacco is dried with heat directed from flues or pipes that extend from a furnace into the barn. The temperature of the furnace is gradually raised until the leaves and stems are completely dried. Flue-cured tobacco leaves are bright and have golden color.
Burley is a larger plant than the flue-cured tobacco and it's 'air-cured’ – without the use of extra heat. This tobacco is traditionally cured hanging in structures with a roof, but with open sides to allow air to freely circulate. Burley leaves are light brown to mahogany.
Cigar Leaf is a fire-cured tobacco. Small fires are built on the floor of enclosed barns similar to those used for flue-curing. The type of wood used and the amount of smoke exposure gives fire-cured tobacco leaves their darker color. Cigar Leaf are dark brown to umber.
