The Restorations evoke a time when leather finishing was done by the hands of master craftsmen. This full aniline dyed leather has a deep and rich patina (color). Because aniline dyes are absorbed differently across the hide, the color has "depth" as slight variations in tones create a stunning, timeless look. This appeal is further enhanced by the presence of oils and waxes in the leather giving Restoration a prized pull-up or distress effect. The "pull up" effect is a soft burst of lighter tones that results from the leather being pulled or stretched during upholstering or overtime with use. For our Restoration Distress version, we have accelerated this "pull up" by milling the hides in a large wooden drum - creating a gorgeous distressed look which can be both vintage or modern chic. Whichever style of Restoration you prefer, these are very special leathers offered at a truly exceptional price! PLEASE NOTE: The Restorations may have very slight color variations within the hide and from hide to hide as is common with premium aniline dyed leather. Subtle natural markings such as brands, healed scratches and scars will be present and are considered the signature of fine, authentic leather.
