Leather is a natural product. It breathes, is warm and has individualattributes, such as shade, grain variation and natural markings, which alladd to its charm and beauty. We stress these marks as featuresindicating it is real leather, not faults. Although slight shading of colourscan occur and is natural, we endeavour to match all hides used asclosely as we can.
General usage and care of Leather upholstery
Leather upholstery has a soft suppleness that will last throughout the life
of the furniture. On softer areas such as cushions, creases and wrinkles
will naturally occur, and the leather may give a little over time on the seat
areas. This is quite normal and gives a soft inviting look that you can
only really get with quality leather upholstery.
• Dust your furniture regularly with a soft cloth or brush, to stop the
accumulation of dust and dirt that cause premature wear. Avoid using a vacuum cleaner on leather.
Sunlight & heat
• All leathers can be affected by light; we recommend it is positioned
away from direct sunlight and heat to protect them from fading and premature wear. (Aniline leathers are especially sensitive to sunlight).
• Do not place hot items such as hot drinks, hot water bottles or
laptops on leather as they may result in dark marks. Therefore we don’t recommend leather sofas for use in conservatories.
• Try to maintain at least 30cm clearance from heat sources such as
radiators to prevent colour change or permanent marks occurring.
• Remove any spills immediately. Blot the liquid with a clean, dry, white,
lint free cloth, working towards the centre of the spill dabbing gently. Do not rub or use abrasive cleaners, detergents or solvents as this will result in damage to your furniture.
Leather categoriesOur range consists of many hides hand-selected from the world’s finesttanneries. Whilst each hide has its own particular look and feel they canbe broadly separated into 4 main categories.
The most attractive and natural leathers which are prized for their soft
natural feel. These leathers that have been aniline dyed using a vat
process with no colour coating added to the surface. They are the most
expensive leathers to produce because only the very best selection of
hides can be used to produce aniline leathers. Aniline dyed leathers are
more susceptible to absorbing liquids because of the natural porosity of
the hide. If you lightly scratch the surface of aniline, it will turn a lighter
colour. To restore the original colour, wet your finger lightly and rub it into
the leather, it should darken slightly, but dry the same colour.
Semi-Aniline dyed leathers have been both dyed and have a thin
finishing layer on the surface. They offer a combination of the softness
and feel of aniline leather with the protective benefits of a surface finish.
By dyeing the leather before the final top coating is applied, a very even
colouration can be achieved with only a thin layer of finish remaining;
therefore the leather remains softer because it is not necessary to apply
a thick top coating.
Pull-up, also referred to as waxy or oily pull-up. Pull-up leathers are
designed to look “distressed” through time and use. The leather lightens
in colour when stretched during wear, creating an “aged” appearance. In
places of heavy use, the oils will be pushed away leaving lighter areas –
particularly on the seating areas.
A fully penetrated aniline dyed hide, its appearance enhanced by a hand
staining process. The result is a rich aged look that gives leather added
depth and character. The rich oils in the retannage allows you to look
deep into the surface of the leather ensuring that all the true
characteristics of the leather, wrinkles, natural texture, markings etc. are
visible. In daily use this patina will be further enriched. Due to varying
grain structure the dyes penetrate to differing degrees in different parts
giving attractive variations.
hide polish only as directed on the container and try first
on a hidden area of leather. Do not use leather soap, saddle soap, hide
food or any other polish than that recommended by a reputable retailer.
upholsteryTo keep your new sofa or chair looking good, we would recommend thatyou vacuum your upholstery at least once a week. If you allow dust anddirt to accumulate the colours will dull and wear will be accelerated.
Avoid exposing your furniture to prolonged sunlight, as even thestrongest colours may fade under such conditions.
Washable cotton loose cover
Loose covers can be washed in temperatures up to 40°C and tumble
dried. We recommend leaving covers slightly damp for ease when
refitting. Although covers can be dry cleaned we advise machine
washing, taking care to avoid washing powders or liquids that contain
optical brighteners. Do not use bleach and be aware of the bleaching
effect that Benzoyl Peroxide, found in most acne creams, can have.
Wash dark colours separately. Steam iron on reverse if necessary. Mop
any spillages immediately with a clean white cloth. It is important to
completely wash the cover at least twice a year.
Tailored fit chenille loose cover
We recommend brushing lightly or vacuuming each week to keep in
good condition. Spilt liquid should be absorbed immediately with a
clean white cloth or tissue. A slightly damp cloth may be used to revive
the texture. The beauty of a tetrad
tailored loose cover is that it gives the
appearance of a fixed cover, but is removable to allow a full cover clean.
We recommend professional dry clean only for these products.
As this cover cannot be removed for cleaning, we advise brushing and
vacuuming to remove dust and dirt. Stained fabric should be dry
cleaned, preferably with a powder cleaner which lifts the stain from the
fabric and can be lightly brushed away. It is always advisable to try out a
cleaner first on a hidden area.
Seat cushions and interiors
Fabric seat cushions which are covered on both faces should be turned
regularly to maximise the life of the fabric. Fibre, feather and down seat
cushions should be shaken and plumped every day.
All scatter cushions should be plumped and turned (where possible) on
a regular basis. Particular care should be taken with chenille scatters to
avoid snagging, for example, when wearing jewellery or high heeled
shoes, as they are of a delicate nature.
