Most Common Types of Leather…
Corrected grain is the most common used in today’s leather upholstery. The hide is buffed to reduce or remove any natural imperfections and colour is applied to the surface. This is the most durable leather being easy to care for and making it an ideal purchase for people with young families.
Semi-aniline leather has been dyed through, often with more than one colour, enhancing the natural shade variations. The leather is a lot softer than corrected grain giving a very luxurious feel.
Aniline leather has minimal or no coating applied, leaving the surface in a more natural condition. It is very soft to touch and can be the most expensive, as it typifies the natural uniqueness that leather can offer.
