Our DUNES® collection has received the Nordic Swan Ecolabel. A highly-respected certification verifying that it meets their rigorous requirements regarding the environment, use of energy and resources. Additionally, as a result of meeting a separate set of criteria, DUNES® can be specified as one of the components as part of the certification process for a design to be awarded the EU Ecolabel (EU Blomst in Danish).
Run your fingers along the surface of DUNES® and it feels as smooth as butter. A special process involving sanding, buffing and applying a special type of leather oil to the surface gives it that almost velvety touch. At the same time, DUNES® boasts a matt look that’s raw with a touch of understated elegance.
Part of DUNES®’ extra appeal are the subtle, natural markings which bring a unique personality to each hide. The colours we feature will also vary from hide to hide and with each individual hide. Watch for a delicious patina that will appear over time as a result of the leather’s exposure to daylight, interior lighting and usage. In fact, the more you use DUNES®, the more the leather becomes shinier and smoother.
Don’t be surprised if you find yourself in love at first sight. Architects and designers gravitate towards DUNES® because of its natural look, subtleness and sublime tactile feel. Reasons why you can easily envision DUNES® for furniture, design items, fashion, accessories, wall panelling, doors and elevators, as well as other decorative elements.

Care & cleaning
As a natural material, leather requires looking after. If you care for the leather in the right way, it will become even more beautiful over time. Here are a few tips:
Only vacuum clean with a soft brush. Never use soap or water otherwise the velvety look and feel will disappear. Do not apply leather grease or soak the leather. Avoid any chemical products, such as saddle soap, other leather cleaners or household products. Protect from direct sunlight, excessive heat and sharp objects
The care and maintenance of leather will always depend on the specific way in which it is used, the conditions of use and how often it is used.
