Leather cleaning approach

Before cleaning any leather, it’s important to understand the tanning method that is used to produce it. Having this knowledge helps us to identify the correct method that will maintain the warranty on your leather furniture. The types of leathers & their cleaning is explained below and can be categorised as Aniline, Nubuck and Protected.

Until the Industrial Revolution in 1800’s the common method of making leather was through the Vegetable Tanning. This method produced harder leather for use as saddles, sandals and bags, which required regular application of oils to reduce cracking and waxes to maintain its water resistance. Since the 1840’s new leather tanning techniques were discovered which produced more supple leather that required no oil maintenance at all. This is because the chrome and fat-liquoring tanning process traps the lubrication inside to keep the leather flexible.

So unless your furniture consists of vegetable tanned leather, there is no need to use any oily creams after the cleaning process. However a lightly sprayed waterproof protector may be recommended to decrease the speed at which future soiling is absorbed. 

Types of leather

types of leather finishes by cleaning agents ltd. in ascot

High quality Full Grain leather that contains dye but requires no correction. This type of leather comes from Northern Europe where climate and living conditions are ideal for protecting the animals. Unless this leather has been treated with a pigmented wax, in which case it is known as Semi-Aniline. It is generally very porous and susceptible to dirt.

Nubuck and Suede
Full Grain that’s been lightly buffed to create a rough surface which is coloured with an aniline dye. Nubuck is a much denser and finer than Suede, which is formed from underlying layers that have been split from the Top Grain. These types of leather, often sold with a distressed look, absorb dirt very quickly and can be difficult to clean.

Made from Full Grain leather or from Top Grain leather that’s been corrected and protected with a polymer coating that may vary in colour. Protected leather may consist of an embossed print to obtain that natural look and feeling. Did you know, that if the coating is more than 0.15mm thick, a UK retailer may not sell the furniture as leather?
