Nile is a sumptuous full grain aniline leather with a contemporary crocodile inspired print. Utilizing original tanning recipes and only the top selection of Italian hides, Nile is made with a combination of artisan and modern processing techniques. Its light transparent, waxy finish exhibits a natural sophistication. Natural characteristics such as healed scars, insect marks and other signatures of nature add character and beauty to the finish. Nile is suitable for most residential, hospitality and executive contract applications.
REACH (EC 1907/2006) compliant production aims to improve the protection of human and environmental health. Processed using low emission mineral tanning formulas which are environmentally respectful, the hides are retanned in aged oak drums using vegetable agents, natural fat liquors, oils and dyes that ensure the leather is properly through dyed. Natural color variations may occur even within the same dye lot.
