Aniline leathers are of the best available quality as they are selected among hides of first choice. Aniline leathers are the most natural leathers as no finishing is applied on the surface to hide imperfections, so that they retain the hide’s natural grain. The imperfections are not a fault but a characteristic of this kind of leather. Colour variances in leathers supplied at different times, and also within the same leather hide are not imperfections but evidence (or consequence) of aniline leather. With the normal use of the sofa the leather becomes burnished in those areas subject to more friction. Dust with a soft and dry cloth for the normal cleaning. Never use abrasive or aggressive products like solvents, stain removers.
