Pure Aniline is without a doubt one of the softest leathers to the touch, it is produced from the finest selection of raw hides. Dyeing takes place in large wooden drums where the hides are bathed until the desired color is achieved. The natural surface of these hides remains unaltered, and their structure is easily recognized.
Pure aniline leather presents some disadvantages when compared to other finished leathers, its light resistance is very poor, it has excessive elasticity and it is susceptible to stains and marks.
Numerous pure aniline hides undergo a waterproof treatment that does not improve in any way its resistance to light and elasticity. With these treatments stains can be avoided, but the leather must be cleaned immediately after any spill.
