No other leather looks like it, feels like it or ages like it.

Only a sophisticated tannage made it possible to create a butter soft leather like the Dover. The drape of the leather lends itself to all applications traditional or contemporary. Visible insect-bites, wrinkles and scars from healed wounds add to the elegant character and beauty of this leather.
For cleaning gently dust the leather off or lightly wipe it off with a damp cloth.
