These hides are typically semi-aniline, and treated with oil or wax to give them a worn look. The oils and waxes darken the original coloration, but ‘pull’ to a lighter colour when stretched. The finish offers unique, subtle colour variations and as they are aniline, the scars, scratches and wrinkles that occur naturally on the leather hides show through the finish. A rich patina will develop over time, and no top coat is applied.
