Top grain leather with even coloration throughout the entire hide. Superior selection of Australian cattle hides are hand selected for Sierra. A gentle buffing and grain enhancement is applied to provide Sierra with a consistent grain structure throughout each hide and from hide to hide. Sierra is recognized industry wide for its clean surfaces and excellent cutting yields. Soft hand combined with superior technical specifications make this leather suitable for most high traffic interior applications from furniture, automotive and marine.
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.
