Aniline Leather Sofa - Why Choose One

By: Louis Zw Zhang

Aniline leather sofas are some of the highest quality sofas you can purchase. The aniline dying process tints the leather used to make the leather sofa all the way through, so even if you get a scratch, the leather underneath the top layer is still the same color.

Because the aniline leather does not cover up any imperfections in the original leather, it must be of very high quality without imperfections to be used to make a leather sofa.

Aniline leather sofas are made from full grain leather and soaking it in a drum to dye the leather. The leather is then used to create the aniline sofa without any other treatments to alter the look of the leather.

This makes it so the leather used for the sofa can breath. Over time and with proper care an aniline leather sofa will develop a patina. Any stains will be absorbed into the leather over a short time and will not be noticeable.

Aniline leather sofas are some of the strongest leather sofas available since they are made with full grain leather rather than the lesser quality split leather that is sometimes used to make inexpensive leather furniture.

However, they do need to be properly cared for. As this is natural leather, you do not want to use any liquids on the leather. If you should spill something, just blot with a clean dry cloth to remove as much as possible of the spill and then leave it alone to be absorbed into the leather.

You want to keep your aniline leather sofa out of the sun and away from direct heat in order to protect the leather from drying out or fading. You do not want to use anything on your full grain sofa that contains oil, wax, or silicone as this will damage it.

Aniline sofas are quite expensive usually due to the high quality of leather used to produce these sofas. Even at a discounted price they may be more expensive than other lesser quality leather sofas. However, you are paying for quality, and you get what you pay for.

Due the the cost of aniline leather sofas and the need to try to prevent liquid spills as much as possible with these sofasFeature Articles, it might be best for those who have small children to stick with other types of sofas that are more child friendly. Source: Domleathersofa dot com
