Bison is an exceptional leather, made from the hides of original, North American bison. Tanned using traditional, American methods, the leather is completely natural. The original western flair is created by final treatment with waxes and oils. The leather becomes softer and softer through use and develops a wonderful patina. All natural features such as scars, insect bites, neck folds, cuts from barbed wire etc. are retained in full. These features are proof of the promised naturalness and intentional expression of this leather and can therefore obviously not be recognised as a complaint! The leather is approx. 1.4 – 1.5mm thick.
Light fastness – medium
Care friendliness- medium
Feel and breathability – high
Basic information about leather
Never position the sofa directly next to heaters, radiators or similar sources of heat. Avoid direct exposure to light or sunlight, sources of heat, radiators or halogen lights, etc. Aniline leather may dry out and change colour after just a few weeks. Natural materials have lower friction resistance and therefore leave marks more easily, especially in combination with liquids such as perspiration. Leather may have a strong odour to begin with. This smell may linger for a few weeks or months, depending on the material. Frequent ventilation works best. Aniline leather is completely natural. No one hide is like another and hides may differ greatly, even within a delivery or even within the hide itself. Deviations from the collection sample are therefore common! Differences in colour and different hide structures are not justifiable grounds for complaint.
