No expense was spared when we created the Stafford genuine leather sofa. The sofa is hand made by traditional artisans who understand the craftsmanship of fine leather, upholstery and quality.
This Sofa is made using Italian Vintage Aniline Leather.
Rugged and robust with the fashionably distressed appearance of an Old West saddlebag or an Old World club chair, this leather’s name says it all. Vintage is a chic and versatile article, natural and rustic, with a smooth hand and an assertive two-tone coloration. The two-tone is created by extensive milling, which also adds softness. Vintage is ironed for smoothness. All the natural hallmarks of the trail will be visible, a guarantee of authenticity and it's natural hallmarks. What may look like defects on the leather are actually natural characteristics of genuine leather. Marks, barbed wire scars, scratches, blemishes, tick bite scars are all natural and this is what differentiates genuine natural leather from imitation. No two hides are alike.
Aniline leather is leather in its purest form and made from only the best hides. It feels soft and buttery, stays warm in Winter and cool in Summer. It has a very unique style where the natural characteristics and markings of the aniline leather will be visible.
Leather is a natural product, and like anything natural it is not always perfect. It is this natural imperfection that attracts the leather fanatic. Leather will have markings that are considered natures signatures, and this is what indicates to the public that the product is genuine leather.
Pictures are for indicative purposes only and colour may differ depending on your room settings and shadows, lighting and computer monitor setting.
Caring for this type of Leather
Aniline leather is designed to have a natural evolution, it cannot be “repaired”. The natural look is sensitive to scratching and staining. We recommend minimal cleaning and if need be clean with a dry cloth and vacuum using a soft brush attachment.
We recommend keeping these sofas away from direct sunlight to avoid fading.
