Once the manufacturing process has been completed, each piece of leather we produce has unique and distinctive markings – a true guarantee of naturalness.

Maintenance

One of the advantages of genuine leather is that it is easy to care for. With just a few simple steps you can easily preserve its natural beauty over time. One important tip is that leather (especially non-pigmented leather) should be kept away from constant sources of light and heat.

For specific products dedicated to the cleaning and maintenance of leather, we recommend visiting www.uniters.com, which offers an extensive product range for all types of leather or related problems.


Full Grain Leathers

Full grain leathers are obtained from selected coats and have a light protective layer on the surface that preserves and protects their natural beauty.

The presence of signs such as scratches, differences in grain, wrinkles, veins and differences in colour shades are proof of how genuine the leather is.

This type of leather has an extraordinarily natural and silky feel.


Karma

Karma is a completely natural leather 0.9 – 1.1 mm thick. It comes from European cattle-breeding and is characterized by an uncommon elegance thanks to a wax based natural finish further enhanced  by the so called “scratch” effect. Scratches can be removed by rubbing the leather at a warm temperature. The “used and antique” look, visible immediately after first use, is a peculiarity of the product. Characteristic elements of the animal’s life, such as healed scars, insect bites and brands enhance the natural  look of the leather. Different tones on the same hide and stains due to the tanning process further outline Karma’s vintage effect.

Cleaning tips: it is recommended to clean the leather with a soft, dry cloth only.  To clean aggressive stains - such as ice cream, coffee or ketchup - dab the spots and remove the material immediately using a dry cotton cloth. Never clean the leather with water and soap or other cleaning products, as that would irreversibly damage the color and finish.

Mammut

Natural leather coming from selected European breeding, with an average thickness of 1.8 – 2 mm.
Its soft, velvet-like finish makes it extremely pleasant to the touch; its beauty is further enhanced by a vintage effect  that comes out with use and a velvety effect which is amplified when the leather is seen against the light.
Being a completely natural leather, with no pigmented coating, healed signs, deep wrinkles and irregular grain may be visible, together with smooth areas alternating to grained areas; light colors tend to show different color shades on the same hide. Thanks to a wax finishing, alsothe so called suede effect may occur. Such marks, however, can be easily faded away by gently rubbing the area.

Cleaning tips: for ordinary cleaning, use a dry, soft cloth only.Keep the sofa away from light and heat sources that may accelerate its natural trend towards discoloration and eventually alter color tones.

Nature

It is a slightly printed full grain leather with a natural look. Each hide, thanks to its natural characteristics, can be exposed to a fading process due to direct exposure to light or heat even for a relatively brief period of time. Like all aniline leathers, it offers all the benefits of a natural leather, thanks to a careful tanning process that leaves the original characteristics of each hide unaltered. Signs such as healed scars, irregular grain, wrinkles, veins and different color shades are an unquestioned evidence of genuineness. It is 1.7 – 1.8 mm thick. Its soft surface gives a velvet sensation to the touch.

Cleaning tips: for ordinary cleaning, it is recommended to use a dry or slightly wet cloth, without applying any pressure. Dry naturally and avoid exposure to artificial heat sources.

Nature_s

Full-grain leather from selected European cattle-breeding, with an average thickness of 1.6 – 1.8 mm.Being an untreated leather, it may show all the signs of the animal’s life, such as scars, visible wrinkles, low grain and color differences, with light and shade marks, which are due to a different grade of absorption of the grain in different areas, as a result of wax and oil finishing that gives the leather a vintage effect.
The characteristic scratch-like marks (resulting from wax and oil finishing) can be easily faded away by rubbing the area.

Cleaning tips: use a dry, soft cloth only. Keep the sofa away from light and heat sources that may accelerate its natural trend towards discoloration.

Nouveau

Nouveau is a completely natural full-grain waxed leather with an average thickness of 1.3 – 1.5 mm; being an embossed leather, it features a vintage look and a slight suede-effect typical of the sanded leathers, although less evident and more irregular because it is not nubuck. Like all natural leathers, each hide tells the story of the animal’s life; this means that scars,healed scratches, insects and parasites bites, veins, tone variations with color contrasts (light/dark or shiny/opaque shade marks) might be visible. Another characteristic of this leather is the so called “scratch effect” that usually tends to reduce or disappear by simply rubbing the area.

Cleaning tips: to keep the beauty of this cover unaltered, it is recommended to use a soft, dry cloth only, as leather generally absorbs any kind of fluids; in order to reduce this kind of problem, Nouveau features a water repellent treatment on its surface which prevents fluids from being immediately absorbed. In case of accidental spills, it is recommended to intervene immediately by removing, and not dabbing, the fluids with a soft bristle brush. However, it is important to know that the water repellent treatment tends to lose its effectiveness after a while. Avoid exposure to intense light or heat that might accelerate color loss or tone variations, occurrences to be taken into account for an article with these characteristics.

Pure

Pure is a full-grain aniline leather from selected European cattle-breeding, with an average thickness of 1.0 – 1.2 mm. It is extremely soft to the touch and has got a silky, velvet-like finish. Being a pure aniline leather, no correction treatments have been applied: this means that the leather will look and feel warm, enchanting and extremely soft, but at the same time it may show all the signs of the animal’s life, such as scars, scratches, healed scratches, low grain, insects and parasites bites, veins and – on lighter colors – tone differences, such as color contrasts and light and shade marks, due to a different grade of absorption of the grain in different areas.

Cleaning tips: clean the leather with a soft, dry cloth only. In case of particularly aggressive stains, such as ice-cream, coffee or ketchup, dab the spot with a dry cloth, immediately removing the spill. Do not clean the leather using water and soap or any other generic cleaning products, as that would irreversibly damage both color and finish. Keep the leather away from light and heat sources that may accelerate its natural trend towards discoloration and eventually alter color tones.
