Made in Italy, Cortina is a high-end aniline pull-up leather from premium North European hides, the leather has a translucent glaze magnifying the natural beauty of leather. The somewhat rustic character of this very charming high end leather reminds one of lacquer applied to fine wood grain, bringing out the depth and beauty of the hide. The look is further complimented by the dramatic pull up effect and its beautiful round luxurious smoothness. The leather creates a warm comforting feel with a dramatic effect. Natural markings enhance the natural beauty of this leather, adding to its classic yet natural character. Cortina has not been altered beyond hair removal. A true full grain aniline leather is the most genuine type of leather, as it retains all of the original texture and markings of the original hide. Inherent shade variations associated with the tanning and dyeing of this elegant protected aniline leather only enhances its sensational visual appeal. Visible wrinkles, insect-bites, brands and scars from healed wounds add to the character of the leather and should be incorporated in every furniture piece made from Cortina.
For cleaning use a damp cloth with a mild soap or leather cleaner.
