is a mineral-tanned suede leather from cows.
Wilderness is a mineral-tanned suede leather from cows. As its name already gives a hint, the leather has a very wild, even rough look that turns it into a real must-have for every leather lover! The leather receives his unique look because, against the common procedure, the leather of the backside is used. The „Sotto-crosta“ side stays completley untreated without getting roughen. That is how this unusual look with different fibre lengths and structures, cut marks and other features, is created. The partially very long and coarse leather fibres are deliberately retained and turn every furniture, in combination with other natural characteristics that can be found in this leather, into a real unicum. All natural features such as scars, insect bites, neck folds and cuts from barbed wire etc. are retained. These features are proof of the promised naturalness and intentional expressiveness of this leather and can therefore obviously not be recognised as a complaint! The leather is approx. 1.2 – 1.4 mm thick.
Light fastness – medium
Care friendliness- medium
Feel and breathability – very 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. The 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. 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.
