Aniline Leather Sofas by Indigo Furniture

Character of 21 day finish Aniline leather sofas

An inspired vintage finish Aniline leather is achieved through a 21 day artisanal process.

HAND SELECTED

English rawhides are hand selected and tanned in Italy, using an age-old technique to produce Indigo’s ultra tactile vintage inspired leather.

Indigo uses only pure uncorrected leather to create our collection of Aniline and Semi Aniline leather sofas. The inherent natural characteristics of each hide and marks of it’s past are maintained and celebrated through an artisanal finishing process.

The 21 day heritage process begins with each hide being tumbled in a wooden tub, the start of the soft and tactile hand feel for which Indigo is renowned.

SOFT HAND FEEL

 

 

 

Aniline leather sofas sport a pronounced natural grain and a soft hand-feel with intense surface interest; wrinkles, blemishes and scars are left in the leather and enhanced during the finishing process.

Indigo hides are not skimmed or pressed resulting in a hide a third thicker than many other available on the market and akin to the grade used in the luxury automobile industry.

Each hide is gently buffed, resulting in a welcoming, breathable leather which invites touch.

The natural dyes used to accentuate the leather’s surface fuse with the hide ensuring the piece is allowed to uniquely age developing a patina individual to each home; ensuring a timeless piece which improves with use.

DISTINCT FINISH

During the final stages of the finishing process different of Aniline leather sofas areas of the hide will take on varying amounts of wax or oils resulting in a distinct finish with multi layers of depth. The resulting colour and texture will vary from hide to hide.

Maintain the suppleness of the leather with regular use of the Indigo Leather Care Pack which is supplied with each piece at the time of delivery.
