The price variation of furniture in different skin is very large. After all, the quality and value of this material consist of many components. Skins are distinguished by the raw materials from which they are produced, by configuration (differences in process chain), method and nature of finishing, thickness, area, and other parameters.
Natural highlighted leather always has a pleasant specific smell - the aroma of prestige, which you do not confuse with anything. The structure of the skin is also unique.
Any skin has folds or wrinkles on the surface, natural traces obtained by the animal during life. They remind you that leather is a natural product and make it possible to argue that any leather sofa is unique to some extent. After all, when working with this material furniture workers have to apply an individual approach to each skin. Therefore, it is impossible to produce high-quality leather soft furniture, simply by giving somewhere technology. Because of its specific properties and individual features, leather requires a great deal of experience from the furniture maker. It takes a lot of working time to compare and skilfully distribute all the features of the "face" on the details of the crown.

General Skin Care Guidelines
The skin is a hygroscopic capillary-porous material, absorbs moisture well, and gives it away just as easily. The mass fraction of moisture in the skin should not be less than 10-16%, this level is easily maintained if the relative humidity of the room is 65-70%. Thus, it is necessary to maintain the normal relative humidity of the room in which the furniture is located. With lower humidity, the skin will begin to give a mass fraction of moisture, which will lead to premature dryness and brittleness of the skin, and as a result, a showering of the dye. Fat substances that impart elasticity dry over time. Loss of elasticity causes cracking of the face layer. Therefore, furniture made of natural leather does not need to be lubricated often, two, or even once a year. For this purpose, it is recommended to use sponges impregnated with stearic lubricant. In order to prevent fading or burning of the dye, it is desirable not to put furniture under direct sun rays, intense electric light bulbs.
REMEMBER! Any cleaning must be pre-tested on a separate sample or hidden area of furniture upholstery. Be sure to wait for the test sample to dry.
Attention: any aggressive substances on the skin destroy the upper protective layer and can cause a color change, loss of elastic qualities, exfoliation of lacquered skins and lead to other irreparable consequences.
Generally, insufficient care is less dangerous to the skin than excess care. Aniline skin is sufficiently carefully cleaned once a year. First, wipe the furniture with a wet soak using non-alkaline soap dissolved in warm distilled water. Do not allow heavy skin soaking or use conventional tap water as it often contains lime and can leave spots or white circles. Use a clean piece of suede that has not been used before. It is undesirable to use an old piece of suede because it can contain residues of methyl alcohol, sand, and dust that can ruin the skin. Then wipe the furniture using boiled water to remove the residue of the soap. When the skin is completely dry, carefully wipe it with a soft cloth with several drops of castor oil applied to it. Use no more than 6-8 drops per square meter of skin.
Instead of a solution of non-alkaline soap, you can also use any past skin cleanser by following the instructions.
NEVER spray a substance supplied as a neutral gas propellant aerosol directly onto the skin. Apply foam to the wet sponge and distribute it over the area to be cleaned. You can then treat the surface with an agent that gives the skin moisture and dirt-repellent properties. One treatment of six months provides good protection. Read and follow the instructions on the aerosol package before using it.
