Leather Care Products

One of the most durable and oldest materials man has worked with is leather.

What different types of leather are made into furniture?

There are two types of finishes for leather that are commonly used and these are:

  • Aniline which is use for leather that is completely flawless and soft. This type of material is very expensive and you will notice the difference when you sit on it as there is a complete the feel. It is also extremely easy to stain and damage so protection and after-care is very important if you have this type of leather.
  • Pigmented finished leather is more robust and commonly found in most leather stores. It is cheaper to make and buy and you will find that the vast majority of leather couches are made from this material. The reason is because it is easier to manage and also can take abuse from stains and spillages better.

Leather Tanning and Finishing

Most leather is made up of hide of animals treated to remove dirt, bacteria and then cured to make it last. the whole process is referred to as tanning. The primary reason leather is tanned, is to lengthen the life of the hide – otherwise it will, like most natural material, decompose and crumble. Without the process of tanning leather will simply have no ling term value.

There are many finishing processes for leather post tanning. The reason for finishing leather is to simply prepare it for end use, and these processes are:

  • dyeing,
  • rolling,
  • pressing,
  • spraying,
  • lacquering,
  • antiquing,
  • waxing,
  • buffing,
  • embossing,
  • glazing,
  • waterproofing,
  • flameproofing

Most these processes are carried out alongside one another to add further long term protection as well as often changing appearance such as color or add changes in surface such as a glossy look.
