Is aniline leather protected?

All Topics  |  Fabric and Leather

Broadly speaking, no. Aniline leather is often finished with a layer of wax that provides some degree of protection against moisture and spills, but it cannot be considered a "protected" or "performance" leather.

There are a handful of aniline leathers with Crypton stain protection, like our Florence line. Some aniline leathers will also be more resistant to showing wear, like our Caprieze line. And aniline leathers are still a tough-wearing product, with many lines having the added benefit of being cleanable and conditionable should you see scratches or fading occur.
