The Leather Story
Which one of our leathers is right for you?
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.
