VEGETAL is the epitome of authentic leather. Considered “naked”, it’s just as nature intended and is the type of Aniline leather that will develop a lovely, natural patina depending on its use.
True to its name, VEGETAL is purely vegetable-tanned with extracts from the mimosa plant and is an extremely high quality, un-dyed leather we feature in its original colour, which actually becomes a beautiful light nut-brown colour. The colour emerges from the tanning agent starting with a very light tone, which then becomes a pale pink, later transforming into a light, nut-brown. Each hide is unique with natural markings. As a result, there will be colour variations from hide to hide.
Soft, subtle and susceptible to light, watch the patina that will appear over time, bringing even more character to a classic leather that’s truly a beauty.
Adding to VEGETAL’s purity is the fact that less than 1% of all hides in the world can be used for this type of leather. To feature VEGETAL in our collection reflects our high standards.

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, minimising 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.
