COVERED / PIGMENTED LEATHER
Nappa leather with slightly glossy surface
1,3 - 1,5 mm thick
With its thickness of 1.3 to 1.5 mm, C-CLASSIC is a covered, classic furniture leather that is known for its slight shine, a soft and gentle furniture leather feel and its capacity for universal use. C-CLASSIC is first dyed on a water-soluble basis after tanning. The dyes penetrate through the leather and bond tightly onto the leather fibers. In addition, the leather surface of the scarred side has a protective layer of pigments. This means that traces of nature and growth are less visible but not totally lost. As a whole, the leather looks more even and is more resistant to outside influences. A covering material is created which is long-lived and easy to care for. An outstanding feature is the slight cloud-like effect which reveals itself in special colors and a faint light-dark pigmentation of the leather. The natural tumbling scars are fully retained and provide a naturally beautiful, refined look of the leather.
We test all our leathers for their functional characteristics and fulfillment of the DGM quality guidelines RAL-GZ 430 “Allgemeine Güte- und Prüfbestimmungen für Möbel” (general quality and test specifications for furniture): C-CLASSIC fulfills the strict requirements as follow:
Light-fastness: min. level 5 | Rubbing fastness: min. level 4
We process natural and growth marks based on the particular piece of covering and the character of the feature. Only real faults which might negatively affect the quality of the leather are left out of the covering.
