When you understand leather, you’ll be better able to appreciate the dramatic benefits of leather furniture. Understanding leather as a natural material is one of the most important factors to consider before purchasing leather furniture. In a world of man-made materials, leather remains a natural product that is ideal for home furnishings. Leather is a versatile, durable skin that is resistant to tearing, cracking, peeling, and punctures. Leather breathes during all seasons and never has a sticky texture like vinyl or “leather match” products.
Quality differences between promotional and higher end leather furniture are very dramatic. One might have difficulty evaluating how these differences impact on the beauty, comfort and durability of an individual piece. One of the major determinates of the quality of a leather sofa is the type of leather used. All leather is the product of animal hides. However, these hides vary greatly in their quality. The origin of the hides, the way in which they’re converted to leather and the method used to dye the hides all contribute to their value.

Leather in its natural state is soft and supple. Before the hide endures the finishing process it is considered “raw”. In other words, it has not been dyed or treated for spills, stains or other safe guard matter. Once your leather has been treated it is ready for active household use. Treated leather allows for day-to-day use, as well as prevention of spills, stains, and mishaps by one’s family and friends.

Even the finest quality leather has markings analogous to fingerprints. It is, after all, a natural product and like anything natural, leather is not always perfect. Its markings should be considered nature’s signature, and are our guarantee that the product is genuine. Leather often contains surface blemishes referred to natural scars. These scars are a part of the beauty of natural leather. Scarring is indicative of a natural skin, which in turn represents authentic leather. Other natural marking that are often found in leather hides include insect bites, healed scratches, barbed wire marks, stretch and vein marks, and age wrinkles.
