CUBA

is an entirely natural, pure aniline leather from natural-selection cattle, mineral-tanned, drum-impregnated and dyed only.

Cuba is an entirely natural, pure aniline leather from natural-selection cattle, mineral-tanned, drum-impregnated and dyed only. The surface is not sealed with a finish, which lets the leather keep its inimitably soft feel and vibrant appearance. The breed of cattle used lives in herds out in the open where they are exposed to the climate and other environmental influences with no protection. The hides that are produced as residual products are the raw material for this leather. All natural and leather features, such as scars, insect bites, neck folds, cuts from barbed wire, brands and raw patches etc. are left visible in the subsequent tanning and refinement processes. These features are proof of the promised naturalness and  intentional expressiveness of this leather and can therefore obviously not be recognised as a complaint!

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.
