Old England is a hand antiqued leather with the original old world charm. The leather comes from choice European cattle. The hides are altered with a dipping and wiping effect which is topped with a glaze like finish. This effect is man made by leather artisans leaving cloud like shadows over the hides. This gives the leather an aged and very classy appearance. Old England exhibits dark and light areas due to the wiping process. The leather is made to look a room cozy and welcoming. Visible insect-bites and scars from healed wounds add to the elegant character of the leather.
For cleaning use damp cloth with a mild soap or leather cleaner.
