Leather is a natural material that improves with age, becoming more comfortable and personal. It is soft and supple yet highly durable and versatile. It breathes, keeping cool in summer and warm during chilly months. As no two animals are the same, every hide is unique. Expect variations and nuances of shading, evenness and texture.
TYPES OF LEATHERS
The type of leather is distinguished by distinctive characteristics and hence, varied maintenance methods are required.
Full aniline, the finest leather available, exudes a beauty like no other. The amount of treatment such as colour or protective pigments used is minimal, showcasing natural markings and colour differences. The luxurious aniline is the
most demanding to upkeep. Aniline leather is extremely comfortable and soft to the touch. Since it retains all the unique markings and characteristics of the hide, each piece is different from any other one
Semi-aniline hides are similar to full aniline leather, except that they are treated with an additional protective finish to prolong the colour lifespan. The grain remains unchanged, highlighting natural features and patterns. While it retains the uniqueness of aniline leather, semi-aniline leather has more consistent colour and is more resistant to stains. It can stand up to tougher conditions and isn’t
damaged as easily.
Lightly buffed and pigmented to ensure consistency in colour and texture, protected hides are durable and resistant to stains. Advantage This makes the leather extremely friendly to families and suitable for frequently used furniture in the home.
