the benefits of pigmenting leather
Leather is skin: it’s natural, living. Leather marks, stains, burns, stretches and warps.
Pigmenting leather- colouring the hide- is a means to conceal the natural blemishes in the skin to create an even, perfected appearance. Pigmenting leather gives the sofa greater durability; allowing for it to last longer, wear better and resist the effects of fading and water damage. Note: be careful positioning your sofa in the sun. Just like human skin, leather burns and ages under harsh sunlight, so try and keep it somewhere shaded to ensure the suppleness and longevity of the hide.
