DUNES® | Sorensen Leather

DUNES®

DUNES® is an exclusive Aniline leather with a natural, raw look and a sublime, almost velvety tactile feel. Achieved via a process of sanding and applying a special type of wax to the surface. 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 natural markings which bring a unique personality to each hide. Colour tones will also vary from hide to hide and within each individual hide. Watch for a beautiful patina that will appear over time as a result of the leather’s usage, exposure to daylight and interior lighting. With use, the leather will become shinier and smoother over time.

We have just added 3 new beautiful earthy tones to our DUNES® collection called Ecru, Almond and Stone. Colours that add a contemporary and elegant touch to the existing collection. What’s more the new nuances easily fit in with every setting.

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 Blomsten in Danish).

DUNES® is now certified with the German Blue Angel Ecolabel (Der Blaue Engel).

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.
