A FEW WORDS ON THE SUBJECT LEATHER CARE

Natural leather has low demands on care. The occasional wiping with a dry or slightly damp cloth is sufficient to free the leather of dust and dirt. After about 2 - 4 years (depending on the degree of utilization) it is advisable to sparingly use our fresheners. It returns the leather its substance which it loses over the years. After that, the refreshment can be repeated inbetween one or two years. Especially Rodeo and Rodeo Plus are treated with fats and oils, which provide for long-sustaining leather substance. The use of chemical cleaning agents rather harms the leather. Also, the excessive use of leather care products is more harmful than beneficial.

 

The leather ANTIQUE collection has an open-pore and natural surface. Therefoe, the leather is breathable and always has a pleasant temperature in the contact. At the same time the surface is sensitive to liquids and wet dirt. Both water and colored liquid can easily lead to staining. Normally, this can not be removed. However, over time stains fade and together with other environmental factors (such as light and touch) a patina is formed which only vegetable-tanned, natural leather can have.

Product Description Glamour

Glamour is tanned chrome-free and vegetable as well as fixed and flatscarred. It has a glossy surface which is produced by hot ironing the leather on the last stage of the manufacturing process. The gloss level may vary greatly from adjustment to adjustment. Through the pull-up effect a dichroism is created when folding - brighter and darker areas appear. We achieve this effect by treating the leather with oils and greases. The different zones of the leather hide can absorb and store the fatliquor more or less intensly. Depending on the amount of fatliquor in the farbic as well as the colour of the leather, the dichroism differs in degree.

 

These typical features create an exciting contrast to the noble glossy surface. With its strength of 1.3-1.5 mm, Glamour leather is particularly suitable for shoes, bags and leather goods as well as reference material for chairs, benches or the like. The final impregnation with a carnauba wax mixture gives the leather a slight protection. However, water drops (for example, rain) and other liquids must be removed quickly, otherwise they will penetrate the leather and leave unpleasant marks on the surface.

Product Description Rodeo

Rodeo is tanned chrome-free and vegetable as well as fixed and flatscarred. The surface is dull and gives the leather a strikingly robust appearance (used look). We achieve this appearance by sanding the leather surface. Subsequently, the leather is treated with fats and oils. By storing different amounts of fatliquor in the various areas of the leather fabric a slight dichroism is created. The optical effect is typical, giving the leather an individual touch. With its thickness of 1.4-1.6 mm Rodeo leather is particularly suitable for shoes, bags and leather goods and furniture. The leathers are ECARF certified.

Product Description Rodeo plus

Rodeo Plus is chromium-free and vegetable tanned as well as fixed and flatscarred. As with Rodeo the surface is matt, giving it a solide look (used optic). We achieve the surface design by sanding the leather surface and by treating it with fats and oils.

 

These attach themselves to different degrees in the various areas of the leather hide. The result is a lightweight dichroism, which means that some areas appear darker or lighter. This particular surface image is typical and makes Rodeo Plus a real highlight. With its thickness of 2.0-2.5 mm Rodeo Plus is particularly suitable for sandals, boots, bags and for seating furniture as well as cantilever chairs.

Please note before ordering::

The leather, which has been designed in a vintage style, particularly emphasizes the natural features of the cowhide. Those natural marks can be two-colored and very rich in contrast on the nubuck-like skin surface. This is a typical feature of RodeoSoft and gives no reason for reclamation.
