No hide of leather is the same as the next, and we at Hayek's Leather Furniture Inc want our customers to take home furniture as unique as themselves. Be sure to stop by one of our two showrooms in Lynnwood and Southcenter, WA to see for yourself.
Every area of leather absorbs dye differently depending on the cell structure. Some spots may be lighter or darker, resulting in a beautiful hide each time. A hide may be pure aniline or semi-aniline. Pure aniline leather has been dyed all the through with aniline dyes and maintains varying intensities of color throughout. Semi-aniline leather is protected with a finish coating that creates a more uniform color.
Hayek's Leather Furniture offers full grain and top grain leather for custom furniture. Full grain is a hide that has not been corrected of scars and blemishes, and is one of the most highly valued types of leather. Top grain is a hide that has had blemishes buffed or sanded away, then embossed with a grain pattern.
Signs of Genuine Leather
Uncorrected leather will bare marks that make it unique and beautiful. You may see brand marks, scars, veins, bites, wrinkles and belly marks, all of which tell a different story. These marks are signs that the leather is authentic, genuine, and most of all, valuable.
Relaxing and Stretching
Over time as you use and enjoy your leather furniture, the leather will naturally relax and stretch, which results in more comfortable sitting. Like most things, leather furniture becomes better with age!
