Types of leather we produce

The type of leather is distinguished by distinctive characteristics and hence, varied maintenance methods are required.

Full Aniline Leather

Full aniline, the finest leather available, is a full grain leather that 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.

Aniline Plus Leather (Semi Aniline Leather)

Aniline Plus leather, also known as semi-aniline leather is similar to full grain 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, Aniline Plus leather has more consistent colour and is more resistant to stains. It can stand up to tougher conditions and isn’t damaged as easily.  Different surface characteristics are also created through finishing processes such as embossing and spray effects.

Protected Leather

Protected leather refers to leather hides that are lightly buffed and pigmented to ensure consistency in colour and texture. Protected hides are durable and resistant to stains, making this top grain leather extremely friendly to families and suitable for frequently used furniture in the home.
