Classic Leather never uses splits on any part of our upholstered furniture.
Before the tanning process the hides are separated into different categories based on the amount of abrasion, scars, brands and other natural markings. The best hides are used to produce full aniline leather, which on average is only about three percent. Hides with minor imperfections are used to produce semi-aniline (natural) leather. Hides with more imperfections are used to produce corrected grain leather.
