What is leather and how to buy leather furniture?

Leather is created by tanning the animal hide, the most common hide used to create leather is cattle hide. The tanning process enhances its durability and flexibility. Vegetable tanning and mineral tanning techniques are usually used. Nowadays mineral or chromium-based technique is being used to do tanning. Before doing tanning, the hide is salted, dried, dissolved in chemicals, and then split. After that tanning process is done. Leather furniture has its different types like Aniline, Semi-aniline, and pigmented leather each having its own specific qualities over others.

  1. Leather is an expensive material but it has four times more durability than fabric, so don’t worry if your kids get around it. Leather furniture gets better with time like jackets or shoes due to patina however in fake leathers, this effect is not present.
  2. Aniline leather is dyed with soluble dyes in a drum, this is done so that the leather completely soaks the dye to give a rich, deep color. Aniline leather is not given any protective coating so that it retains the natural look of leather and it’s the softest and most expensive leather but it doesn’t have much resistance against dirt and water so it requires high maintenance. If you want a more appealing sofa and maintenance is not an issue for you then aniline sofa is a great choice.
  3. Semi-aniline is also termed as protected aniline because it is given a small surface coating against stains and fading. Other than that, it is also dyed in a drum to provide rich, and deep color, it retains the natural look of leather while also having resistance against dirt, stains, and fading. If you want to have both things lesser maintenance and appealing look then semi-aniline leather sofa is best for you.
  4. Pigmented leather is provided surface coating and not dyed. As a result, it doesn’t have a great appearance but has greater protection against scratches, stains, and fading. Pigmented leather is cheaper. If maintenance is an issue for you want to buy a sofa for a busy place, then pigmented leather sofa is best.
  5. If something spills over it or you have to remove dust just use a damp cloth, unlike fabric, the color of leather doesn’t make a difference when it comes to regular maintenance.
  6. Look for seat cushions that have zip to get them refilled easily when the time comes because the leather can last for decades but seat cushions may not last that much longer.
  7. Make sure to check the type of suspension if it is an 8-way hand-tied or sinuous spring then it is great however if it has webbed suspension make sure to check the type of it as some are good and some are bad.
  8. Leather adjusts itself according to the temperature of your body, so the notion that leather is cold is a misconception.
  9. Leather has different types of it, which type of leather you should buy depends upon the usage of it? Like if you are planning to buy a sofa for a place that remains pretty busy, in that case, it might get wear and tear then you need to go with a little heavier finish and a protective coating.

  11. Avoid mixed leather or leather-vinyl combination furniture. It looks good, has a lesser price than real leather but it may not last long as real leather.
