This distressed Italian leather has been lightly brushed with beeswax to create its matt slightly aged appearance. These are aniline leathers, tanned to ensure a pleasing distressed finish. Extra fat liquors are applied during tannage, to give the leather a waxy feel. The leathers are designed to allow the natural variations of the leather to show through the finished coat. Pull up leathers; do not have a consistent colour density across the whole hide. They are also designed to change colour when pulled or stretched. These types of leathers are not as colour fast as pigmented hides and should be protected from direct sunlight and not placed next to radiators and other heat sources where the wax could dry out. Evidence of marks and scarring will be seen through the surface finish. Each hide is unique and swatch samples should be regarded as no more than a guide for these types of leather. It is available in 12 colours and has a thickness of between 0.9-1.0mm.
The price below is per square metre which varies depending on the size of hide available when you order – a full hide is normally between 4-6 square metres.
Please note that samples are available as colours vary greatly on screens and when printed.
