Colours curated by Note Design Studio
Our SPECTRUM collection reflects a selection of colours curated by Note Design Studio, one of our creative collaborators. A Stockholm-based studio working with design strategy, graphics, architecture, interiors and products. They have removed some of the brightest hues and added an array of new ones to create a more natural, nuanced colour palette. Grouping colour families together according to warm and cold hues.
With over 85 colour variations, you’d be hard pressed to find a leather available in so many subtle tonalities as SPECTRUM. Including more subdued tones and variations that allow for easy pairing with stronger, more vibrant colours. Given so many colours to choose from, you don’t have to compromise on creativity.
SPECTRUM is a soft leather with a subtle texture that looks more uniform, thanks to a light surface finish that works to protect the leather from dirt, stains and any fading resulting from exposure to light. SPECTRUM is ideal for designers and architects, as it can be used in a broad range of industries. From commercial spaces, including entire shopping centres and boutiques to business settings, such as offices and reception areas, to hotels and restaurants, public buildings and the healthcare sector, as well as cultural institutions and private residences.
Our SPECTRUM collection has received the LEATHER STANDARD by OEKO-TEX® certification. A scientifically-founded, worldwide testing and certification system for leather that covers all stages of production. 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.

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.
