Semalin is an elegant, mineral-tanned, nappa leather from South American pampas cattle. The hides are slightly corrected and pre-embossed after drum dyeing. The leather is then given a semi-aniline finish to dress it and to improve its performance characteristics. As a result, the leather largely retains its softness and breathability, despite the addition of small quantities of pigment. The naturally grain also remains clearly visible. The natural grain is not covered by the pigmentation, but slightly protected. The leather is approx. 1.2 – 1.4 mm thick.
Light fastness – medium/high
Care friendliness- high
Feel and breathability – medium/high
Basic information about leather
Never position your 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. 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. No one hide is like another, hides differ greatly within a delivery and there may be great differences in colour and structure, even within the hide itself. These differences are not justifiable grounds for complaint. Deviations from the collection sample are therefore common!
