Remember, leather is a natural article. The leather will behave much the same way our skin behaves. The color will adhere slightly different in most areas of the hide. The surface of the leather will look different depending on the way the leather is processed. It is normal for natural leather products to show a variety of spots, scars, insect bites, wrinkles and veining; each spliced skin texture is also different; these are not the cause of quality problems or defects. These “natural characteristics” of genuine leather are viewed as “normal” and within factory standards.
Suede is an Aniline-dyed soft split cowhide brushed to a luxurious nap. A unique tanning process for suede imparts limited to no stain or water resistance. There will be natural variations in color and tone within each skin and from garment to garment. Suede surfaces may include natural characteristics such as small holes, crease lines, and discoloration spots. These characteristics are minimal but should be expected to some degree as this is a natural product and is not considered a defect. These characteristics are part of the beauty of this natural leather and highlight each skin’s unique history and natural markings.
