What is the difference between leather types?

Modified on Mon, 6 Feb, 2023 at 12:30 PM

There are many types of leather which are suitable for different uses. Your lifestyle will determine which leather type is right for you. To make it even easier, we have grouped our leather into three lifestyle categories:

Protection Leather: For everyday family use (Corrected grain, buffed or pigmented leather). Active families require leather that offers a high degree of protection and is particularly forgiving. It is highly resistant to liquids, sunlight and handles the wear and tear that an active lifestyle demands. Protection leather requires little maintenance and has been embossed to ensure consistency in colour and texture. Ideal for families with children!

Performance Leather: Extra softness and protection (Semi-Aniline dyed top grain leather). For those not so active, yet everyday users, who enjoy the luxury of soft leather. It is the best of both worlds. It combines softness with durability. This leather shows all of the distinctive markings of the hide. It combines glove like softness with good resistance to wear and tear. More suited to couples or small families.

Natural Leather: Lightly protected or unprotected leather (Semi-Aniline or Full Aniline dyed, Vintage Look, Nubuck and Suede leather). This leather possesses natural beauty and is the most valuable of all. Natural markings are intrinsic traits of Natural leather as it can be treated with only the lightest impregnation of pure Aniline dye. This shows the many shade variations and adds richness to the colour.
