Light Line - Smooth Leather
A soft to the touch and supple semi-aniline cowhide leather, which gets its soft feel through repeated fine processing. It represents a wonderful combination of natural pure aniline and pigmented leather with a stronger color top coat achieved by barrel dyeing. It is durable and easy to clean. Its skin pores are still slightly visible, the leather can still breathe. Slight irregular grain shows the naturalness of the leather. It flatters the hands, is soft and grippy at the same time and still provides a certain protection against stains and liquids.
In the past, leather was protected against water by greases. In addition, a chemical impregnation was applied before the first use. Hydrophobic leather, on the other hand, is treated during the tanning process so that it is already naturally resistant to water for a longer period of time.
