Is an extremely thick, rustic, neck aniline leather from Asian water buffalo, with a natural, unfinished surface.
Bubalus is an extremely thick, rustic, neck aniline leather from Asian water buffalo, with a natural, unfinished surface. After high-quality, soft nappa mineral tanning, the leather is just drum-dyed with selected dyes. Unsealed surface that allows the leather to keep its inimitably soft feel and vibrant appearance. Water buffalo are outdoor-dwelling farm and sometimes work animals that are exposed to the elements and other environmental influences with no protection. The hides produced as by-products of food production are the raw material for this exceptional leather. All natural and leather features, such as scars, insect bites, neck and fattening folds, scratches from thorns and barbed wire and raw patches etc, and sometimes smaller, plain areas, are left visible in the subsequent tanning and refinement processes. The leather cannot be processed without all of these features! They are proof of this leather’s promised naturalness and intentional expressiveness and can therefore not be accepted as grounds for complaint! The leather is approx. 2.8 – 3.5 mm 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.
