Leather – as unique and individual as a fingerprint

Leather is a piece of nature – it breathes, is durable and is kind to the skin. The special treatment that we give to our leather does not just ensure a long service life; it also makes it extremely easy to look after.

Our LongLife leathers fulfil the requirements for "healthy living" set by the German Quality Assurance Association for Furniture (Deutschen Gütegemeinschaft Möbel e.V.).
By opting for leather, you are choosing both a natural product and a totally unique material. In the case of cowhide, as with other hides, there may be different structures within one piece as well as various signs of life, such as grains, small rough spots and tick bites. These do not constitute defects; instead they are natural features and growth marks and the associated properties typical of these goods.
