General characteristics of natural leather
Leather is a natural material that ages with the time of use. You might notice the following characteristics on the leather sofa:
1. Each sofa is unique
2. Shade variations
No two hides are alike and due to the difference in grain structure, it will cause the dyes and coating to penetrate to different degrees. This gives each hide a unique look.
3. Stretch marks
Stretch marks are created when the hide is stretched to accommodate the shape of the sofa.
4. Grain variation
Fibre texture varies differently from being tight across the backbone to being loose in the belly areas.
Wrinkles appearing on the leather surface is due to stretching and results in the inner material to be squeezed or moved due to the habit of use. The softness of the cushion will increase to 5 – 10% with the frequency of use. It is best to sit at different parts of the sofa and occasional patting of the sofa can relieve it from the wrinkles and maintain its best appearance.
