A Pigmented and corrected grain hide that is dyed through and then applied with a darker florenteak top coat. After the furniture has been upholstered we undertake a hand antiquing process which removes areas of the top coat to produce a subtle aged look.

It can be expected that everyday usage abrasion will accentuate the antique colour change and is an inherent feature of this kind of leather finish. This type of leather has been our best seller on traditional styles for the past thirty years and can be relied upon to stand up to all the rigours of a busy home or commercial environment.
