Leather description

Natural cowhide with a nubuck finish. The leather is napped on the grain side after mineral tanning and aniline drum dying. This gives the material a pleasant, velvety feel and the classic writing effect. The leather is approx. 0.9 – 1.1mm thick. Original, natural raw material has intentionally been used to retain the appearance of “wild” nubuck. All natural features such as scars, insect bites, neck folds, cuts from barbed wire etc. are retained in full. These features are proof of this leather’s promised naturalness and intentional expressiveness and can therefore obviously not be recognised as a complaint! Nubuck leather basically has lower abrasion values than smooth leather. As a result, its colour may rub off slightly, even in the beginning. At the end of production, hides are given a light stain and water-resistant treatment. All colour samples for this type of leather in furniture store.

Cleaning & Care

Vacuum the leather occasionally with a soft upholstery brush. Generally speaking, leather should be wiped occasionally with a slightly damp cloth.

Basic information about leather

Never position your sofa directly next to heaters, radiators or similar sources of heat. Avoid direct exposure to light or sunlight, sources of heat, radiators or halogen lights, etc. Aniline leather may dry out after just a few weeks and its colour may change. Natural materials have lower friction resistance and therefore leave marks more easily, especially in combination with liquids such as perspiration. Leather may have a strong odour to begin with. This smell may linger for a few weeks or months, depending on the material. Frequent ventilation works best. No one hide is like another and hides may differ greatly, even within a delivery or even within the hide itself. Deviations from the collection sample are therefore common! Differences in colour are not justifiable grounds for complaint.
