All of our standard fabrics and leathers live up to the fire safety norms BSE EN1021-1 + BS EN 1021-2 as well as CALIF BULL.117SEC. E fire requirements.

LOKE

The leather type "Loke" is a buffed, embossed ox hide with a coated surface.

Hides used for this type of leather are sanded to uniform thickness and then embossed to achieve a uniform surface without visible scares or other marks. Finally, a top coating is added to give the leather a protective layer.

This type of leather has a pleasant surface with low breathability. The advantages of "Loke" leather are that is requires low-maintenance and resists most stains and fading from sunlight.

We recommend this type of leather for homeowners who want easy maintenance at the lowest possible cost as well as for restaurants, hotels, public spaces etc.  

"Loke"-leather is available in many colors. We recommend you to contact your local dealer for experiencing the complete collection.

THOR

The leather type "Thor" is a semi-aniline ox hide with a natural grain and a coated surface.

More uniform hides are chosen for this type of leather. It has a largely uniform surface structure with some visible scars or other marks. After aniline dying, a pigmentation coat is added to give perfect color uniformity. Finally, a top coating is added to give the leather a protective layer.

This type of leather has a good touch and low breathability. The advantages of "Thor" leather are that it requires low-maintenance and resists most stains and fading from sunlight.

We recommend this type of leather for homeowners who want a good balance between maintenance and comfort.

"Thor"-leather is available in many colors. We recommend you to contact your local dealer for experiencing the complete collection.

SIF

The leather type "Sif" is a full grain, uncoated pure aniline ox hide.

Only the very finest hides are chosen. The tanning and dying processes are one and the same. No final pigmentation or coating are applied, so slight variations within hides and between hides may occur.

"Sif"-leather has the most exclusive touch and the highest breathability. It has the most natural surface structure which is why scars or other marks may be visible.

Be aware that the light or vegetal colors will age with patina and grace - however, they are also very susceptible to stains. The darker colors will fade somewhat if exposed to sunlight for a longer period of time.

We recommend this type of leather for those who want the very best comfort and quality, and who love the graceful ageing of the very best leather.
