Manager

Leather is a natural product with its own individual characteristics. Differences in color and texture is inert to this material. This can be expected even within the same patch of skin. Markings, scars and insect bites to the skin during the animal's life should be regarded as features of genuine leather and certainly not as a defect.

furniture fabric

As with leather variants, the prices on upholstery fabrics may differ. We have a suitable furniture fabric in our store in almost every color of the rainbow. If you would like to provide your own fabric or have any suggestions, we would like to hear from you.

Cleaning

Clean your furniture by dusting with a soft cloth and immediately remove any spilled liquids or food by dabbing with a soft cloth or tissue working from the outside to the inside of the stain. Clean once a month by wiping the furniture with a damp cloth. No more than a damp cloth. Polish wax, detergent, solvent, varnish or stain remover should not be used as they could seriously damage the leather surface. For further advice on leather care of your specific leather, it is best to consult a specialist.

pillows

A variety of pillow fillings are used, often depending on the model and design. It is essential that with feather or fiber filling the cushions are shaken at least twice a week to maintain their size and atmosphere. When it comes to cushions with leather on both sides, it should also be turned regularly to achieve equal wear. Body heat also has an effect on leather and sitting can therefore cause some stretch in the leather with a seat cushion, this is a property and cannot be avoided.


Full aniline leather:

This leather is exclusively barrel dyed.
It is the most natural type of leather and is therefore particularly beautiful and made from the most beautiful hides. It feels soft and supple and the natural scars and color nuances (pigments in the skin) are clearly visible and unavoidable. This type of leather is particularly sensitive to dirt, grease, moisture, perspiration and main fats, making it necessary to properly protect this type of leather. Direct radiation from sunlight – UV radiation – should also be avoided to prevent discoloration and dehydration.
Maintenance advice:
• Leather Protection Set
• Protexx Leather protector
• Leathergard

Semi-aniline leather:
This leather has a lightly pigmented protective layer (a very thin layer of lacquer). This protective layer prevents the penetration of pollution to a reasonable extent, making this leather type slightly more practical to use. Semi-aniline leather is close to the original dermis, because the natural characteristics are still clearly visible (for example, the holes of the hair implant can still be seen). Direct radiation from sunlight - UV radiation - should be avoided to prevent discoloration and dehydration.
Maintenance advice:
• Leather Protection Set
• Leather Plus
• Protexx Leather protector
• Leathergard

Coated leather:
This leather has a pigmented, non-transparent finish, so that the natural imperfections in the skin are less/not noticeable. This protective layer offers extra protection, making this type of leather very practical to use. Direct irradiation of sunlight - UV radiation - should be avoided to prevent discoloration and dehydration.
Maintenance advice:
• Leather Protection Set
• Leather Plus
• Protexx Leather protector
• Leathergard

Nubuck leather:
Nubuck leather has the properties of a full-aniline leather (the most natural form of leather), but with a sanded top layer (a velvet-like effect is created). Nubuck leather is a finely sanded grain leather (this is the top of a leather skin). Although the most beautiful hides are used for this type of leather, it is still possible that insect bites, thorn scratches or horn blows, neck wrinkles, coarse pore or grain structure can still be found in the leather. This type of leather is particularly sensitive to dirt, grease, moisture, perspiration and main fats, making it necessary to properly protect this type of leather. Direct irradiation of sunlight – UV radiation – should also be avoided to prevent discoloration and dehydration.
Maintenance advice:

• Nubuck kit
• Textile & Leather Protector

Old Saddle Leather:
Old Saddle leather is a patinated vegetable tanned leather type with a so-called handwish effect. It is made from the best Western European bovine hides and has a waxy finish. A sophisticated tanning, dyeing and greasing process has resulted in a leather type with good rubbing resistance and sufficient lightfastness. Nevertheless, this type of leather should not be placed in full sun, as the leather will discolour. In use, this type of leather will acquire its final patina and thanks to the folds, the furniture will show its character. Due to the patinated waxy finish, this leather should not be treated with a damp cloth or cleaning agent.
Maintenance advice:
• Old Saddle Wax

Pull Up Leather:
The term “Pull Up” is often not directly related to a certain type of leather, but actually stands for a certain appearance of the leather. The “Pull Up” effect means that there is a color nuance in the leather as you put the leather under tension (pulling = pull). The part that comes under tension will then slightly discolour.

As far as is known, Pull-Up leather is distinguished into:
• Pull Up leather finished with a wax and/or oil layer.
• Pull Up leather finished with a polyurethane (PU) lacquer or foil layer.

Pull Up leather finished with a wax and/or oil layer.
This type is usually a full grain leather. It is made of volaniline leather.
This volaniline is treated with vegetable oils to make the surface darker in color, which is dyed through and through with aniline dyes (pigments). During the final processing phase in the tannery, hot oil or wax is rolled over the grain of the leather. By using this leather it will become lighter in color over time (in some places). By giving the leather a thin treatment twice a year, the leather returns somewhat to its original color. While applying a leather wax or cream, the cloth or sponge will (sometimes) give off some color. This is a normal phenomenon with this type of leather. Minor damage or scratches can also be camouflaged with this type of leather by using heat. The leather can then be slightly heated with a hair dryer, so that the color recovers somewhat. Given the oil or wax layer of the leather, it is not recommended to clean this leather. In extreme cases, only use a slightly damp cloth. It is advisable not to place this leather in direct day or sunlight because this will eventually result in a lighter discolouration.
Maintenance advice:

wax it
Pull Up leather finished with a polyurethane (PU) lacquer or foil layer.
This type should not just be called “leather”. There are types in which ground and recycled leather fibers are applied to a (often) linen cloth by means of gluing on both sides. The top is then provided with a very heavy polyurethane (PU) coating. We call this type of “leather” “Bycast”. There are also types in which a foil layer with a Pull Up effect is printed on the pigmented cowhide leather (usually split leather). Finally, there is also a variant of this type of "leather", which may not be called leather. This is because it is a 100% artificial leather (PVC) with a polyurethane (PU) lacquer layer over it. With all types of "leather" mentioned, a hair dryer (heat) can offer a solution against minor damage or scratches. Clean the mentioned “leather types” twice a year with Clean-It and treat (feed) with Wax-It. These products are packaged in the Wax It set. Always read the instructions for use on the packaging first.
Maintenance advice:
• Wax It set

sheep leather:
A vegetable tanned leather (full aniline) without a protective layer.
The naturally drier and stiffer tanned sheepskins are, according to ancient tradition, polished by hand with an often brownish “water stain” and finished with a wax-based product. As a result, sheep leather almost always shows the so-called “cloud effect”. Partly in view of the relatively small hides that are processed, color and structure differences between the various parts of the furniture are unavoidable. Due to the structure of sheepskin leather, small hairline cracks (also known as a crackle effect) may develop when using the furniture. This benefits the charm of the leather, partly due to the antique look.
Maintenance advice:
• Old Saddle Wax

PU - leather
Because this is a polymer leather, it is also called factory leather. If you are not vegan, we only see disadvantages of this (for a seat). Not only because of the perspiration while sitting, but also and an often somewhat cheap appearance and limited lifespan. PU = Poly - Urethane is actually a mix of several materials, pressed to the desired appearance. It is easy to take off. Very limited lifespan.
