OPTIMO is a chrome-free Protected leather.
Surprisingly firm, very durable and practical, OPTIMO has a light surface coating that makes it water resistant, designed to protect the leather from any stains, fading or wear and tear over time.
It’s no coincidence that our name for this collection is OPTIMO. It’s the ideal, optimal leather that can be used for almost any type of furniture or design concept. The fine surface pattern gives it a uniform look, which also makes it easy to work with.
Our OPTIMO collection has received the LEATHER STANDARD by OEKO-TEX® certification. A scientifically-founded, worldwide testing and certification system for leather. Based on international test standards and other recognised test processes, the certification involves around 100 test parameters. Including numerous environmentally-relevant substances and chemicals harmful to the health. The more intensively an article comes into contact with the skin, the stricter the human-ecological requirements that it must fulfil.
OPTIMO 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:
Our leather is ready for you to use as soon as it arrives, so there is no initial need to treat it or clean it. Over time if you see the need for cleaning, use a vacuum cleaner once or twice a month with a soft brush to remove any dust. Once or twice a year for thorough cleaning, use the foam from soap flakes stirred in warm water. Apply the foam with a dry soft cloth, minimizing any contact with water. Avoid bar soap, saddle soap, leather cleaners, household detergents or chemical 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.
