The Leather Story

Which one of our leathers is right for you?

Pure Aniline Leathers: Pure Aniline is without a doubt one of the softest leathers to the touch, it is produced from the finest selection of raw hides. Dyed for color without any pigments applied. These hides will exhibit natural characteristics such as healed scars, scratches, and neck and belly wrinkles. Expect color variation from the swatch to the actual leather due to the fact leather is a natural product and will absorb dye differently within the hide and from hide to hide. Pure aniline leather presents some disadvantages when compared to other finished leathers, its light resistance is very poor and will fade with prolonged exposure to sunlight., it has excessive elasticity and it is susceptible to stains and marks.

Protected Aniline Leathers: Dyed for color and then receives pigments to ensure color consistency. Without pigment, a protected leather is not color consistent. The pigment ensures resistance to fading and slows the leather wear over time. A clear water based topcoat is applied for protection only, which makes these leathers great for high traffic areas and highly active families. Expect natural characteristics such as healed scars, scratches, and neck and belly wrinkles throughout the hide. Easy to maintain and have the maximum wear ability you can achieve with leather.

Nubuck Leathers: Dyed for color and then polished to create a nap. Since nubuck leathers have no pigment applied these hides will exhibit color variation from hide to hide and dye lot to dye lot. Natural markings are visible throughout these hides and prolonged exposure to sunlight will cause leather to fade.
