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.
