The Authentic collection is made of comfortable vintage leather - visibly cracked but smooth and soft to the touch. This leather is washed on the sofa and then a soft liquid casein (derived from honey) is applied to create a smooth, soft look. Upholstered, washed, apply hard casein, crack it, seal it, and crack it again. Authentic Vintage leather is typically aniline, ensuring that the natural richness and feel of the leather’s original surface is maintained and celebrated as much as possible. Real leather is a natural product and as such, will often bear the hallmarks of its origin. Characteristics including scars, branding marks, creases and areas of grain variance are not detrimental to the durability of the product, they emphasise that authentic hides have been used rather than printed reproductions.
