Lightly Protected

The softest and most supple of our leathers. These exceptionally natural, full top-grain, full aniline hides often have “character marks” on the surface including scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and subtle shading variations. Like many of the finer things in life, these  lightly protected leathers require moderate attention to maintain their beauty over time.  These leathers age beautifully and develop a soft patina over time. As with all fine leather, visible natural markings and slight color variations are part of their inherent beauty. 

Each of these Lightly Protected leathers have a different look and feel.

BISON
This thick-cut, full top-grain leather is noted for its plump grain and rich, soft hand. Produced from the most desirable hides in the world, its supple hand and natural markings reveal the leather's unprocessed purity. A light protective finish enhances consistency and makes Bison remarkably suitable for many lifestyles. A subtle marbled or "sauvage" effect adds depth to the color. Shown here, the Moore Sofa in Bison Brown.

FIFTH AVENUE
Originally developed by top European fashion designers, this thick-cut, pebble-grain leather is distinguished by its depth of color and subtle sheen. Produced in Italy using only the most desirable hides, these full top-grain, aniline dyed hides are enhanced with oils to bring out their distinct pebble grain, soft sheen and supple hand.

HAVEN
With its amazing depth of color, beautiful natural finish and light, subtle sheen, Haven is an exceptional choice for almost any decor. Haven is a full top-grain, aniline dyed leather artistically enhanced with wax and oils to bring out its suppleness and sheen. A light protective finish enhances its wearability.

SHIMMER
Produced from full top-grain hides, Shimmer offers an amazingly soft, silky hand. A unique, light pigment coat provides consistent coloration and enhances its appearance with a subtle metallic finish. A wonderfully distinctive leather, Shimmer provides an elegant effect while retaining the durability and luxury of a premium leather.
