When Buying a Leather Sofa, the difference in between leathers explained

We have customers call to find out ‘What is the difference between our leather‘, well I will give you a few pointers of each of the leather ranges we use.

Antique Leather

Better known as rub off leathers, these have been buffed and corrected to remove imperfections and embossed with a traditional print. Then the top coat can be removed to reveal its base coat for a two tone effect. We tend to do this on the high points of a chesterfield sofa or club chair, to give it the aged look.

Premium Leather

In total we have 19 colours in this range and they are all pull up leathers, they have a slight distressed finish. Some of the leathers in the range are lightly brushed with beeswax to give a pleasent matt apperance and some with a blend of oils and waxes to give a buff effect.

Hand dyed Leather

This is the most prestigous range we offer, the Newcastle colours are very smooth, full grain leathers finished with a blend of oils to acheive a pull up effect and a glossy finish. These leathers create a classic ‘Old Saddle’ apperence. Healed scars, scratches, neck and belly wrinkles will be apparent throughout these hides. They are  pure aniline leathers and so hides will fade in prolonged sunlight. The other four colours in this range Oak, Ebony, Chestnut and Walnut are vegatable tanned in a traditional way and is of the highest quality. Aniline dyed and hand padded to give a unique finish.

All the leathers we use for are products are good quality leathers and come from well known British tannerys and have been regarded by professionals and desingers as the benchmark for the industry.
