We offer a full range of leathers from plain, rub off antique leathers, aniline, waxed, pull up leathers and patterned leathers. All our leathers and colours are not shown on our website therefore please enquire if you require a different colour sample.
Leather is a natural product, it will display traces of its past such as brand marks, scars, growth lines, veins and areas of differing fibre density. These hallmarks in no way detract from its natural beauty, quality or durability of the leather.
Types of Leather
Antique -Rub off Leathers: This is a classic embossed rub off hide, that is mainly associated with deep buttoned furniture, such as chesterfields. Once the hide has been upholstered the dark thin top coat is gently rubbed off to give the required effect. It is then resealed with the appropriate lacquer. This gives you the classic two-tone antique effect.
Pigmented Leathers: are produced on corrected grain hides, finished with a pigmented topcoat. This is then embossed with an artificial grain pattern. And is available in many solid colours.
Aniline leathers: are tanned to ensure a pleasing and distressed aged finish from new. As these leathers are the most natural looking leathers all the natural characteristics of the animal hide will remain visible. The hides do not have a consistent colour density across the whole hide, therefore the colour can change when pulled or stretched. It is less resistant to sun light, soiling and liquid absorption therefore extra care is needed.
Semi-aniline leathers: these leathers still give a natural appearance but are more durable than aniline leathers. This is due to a very light pigmented coating on the surface of the hide, still allowing the natural beauty of the hide to show through but providing a more consistent colour and protection.
