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. Aniline leather may dry out after just a few weeks and its colour may change. Natural materials have lower friction resistance and therefore leave marks more easily, especially in combination with liquids such as perspiration. Hides 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!
