Our Natural Leather

We pride ourselves on sourcing high quality, semi-aniline leather.

But what is semi-aniline leather and what makes our leather special?

Why Semi-Aniline?

Semi-aniline leather is a type of naturally tanned leather. To be classed as semi-aniline, it can only be slightly pigmented during the tanning process.

The natural grain and hair pores must be visible through the pigmentation for it to be classed as semi-aniline.

As it is a natural product, it has a rustic look and feel and showcases all the scars and marks that have occurred on the hide before, during and after the tanning process.

While semi-aniline leather is not as soft as fully-aniline leather, it has increased durability due to the application of a light surface coating with a small amount of pigmentation.

While semi-aniline leather does have a tendency to pick up marks, it will not crack or peel over time. Any marks or scratches will melt right into the leather and add to the rustic look.

We choose semi-aniline, because it means you're getting a durable product that will look

One sofa... abundant character

What to expect from your sofa

When you receive your sofa, you may notice it already has some level of scratching, variance or spots.

These spots and marks are completely normal and should be expected on any natural leather sofa.

They add to the rustic vibe and feel of your natural product. Below are some examples of markings and variance you can expect on a single panel of a product (pictured on our Ruby and Jordie sofas).
