Saddle Leather Sofa

Did you know? Leather is only a by-product of the food industry. No animals are raised for leather production. Some furniture manufacturers use vinyl look-alikes or less expensive split hides on the parts of the furniture you don’t touch as much, like the sides and backs. Leather upholstery first became popular during the Renaissance period in Europe. Leather cannot “breathe” like fabric, so it is impossible to make pillows or cushions with leather on all sides. Otherwise, air in the cushions could not escape and they would be very uncomfortable! Some leathers are much stiffer or thicker than others, which can affect how soft the cushions feel when you sit in the furniture. Leather tanneries use so many chemicals that they are not allowed to operate in the United States due to environmental regulations. All leather is cleaned, cured, dyed, and finished overseas. Some “faux” leathers aren’t entirely artificial, but are made by grinding up real leather and gluing it all back together. These faux leathers are not the real thing, but they’re very close! “Pull-Up” leathers are specially treated with oils and wax so that when the leather is pulled tight during upholstery, it creates a burst of lighter multi-tones at pressure points. Suede leather may be desirable for clothes and handbags, but it is much too fragile for furniture.

Due to its excellent resistance to abrasion and wind, leather found a use in rugged occupations. The enduring image of a cowboy in leather chaps gave way to the leather-jacketed and leather-helmeted aviator. When motorcycles were invented, some riders took to wearing heavy leather jackets to protect from road rash and wind blast; some also wear chaps or full leather pants to protect the lower body. Many sports still use leather equipment. Its flexibility facilitates forming and shaping it into balls and protective gear.

Remove liquid stains. Sometimes drinks like coffee, tea, or red wine may be spilled on your leather sofa. It is best to clean this liquid immediately and do not let it dry on the leather’s surface. Once the liquid is removed, gently cleanse the leather with a leather cleaning solution. Remember to completely dry the leather’s surface with a dry rag when you are finished cleaning.

Many tanning methods and materials exist. The choice ultimately depends on the end application for the leather. The most common tanning material is chromium, which leaves the tanned leather a pale blue color (due to the chromium). This product is commonly called wet blue. The hides, when finished pickling, are typically between pH 2.8 and 3.2. At this point, tannery workers load the hides into a drum and immerse them in a float that contains the tanning liquor. The hides soak while the drum slowly rotates about its axis, and the tanning liquor slowly penetrates through the full thickness of the hide. Workers periodically cut a cross-section of a hide and observe the degree of penetration. Once the process achieves even penetration, workers slowly raise the float’s pH in a process called basification, which fixes the tanning material to the leather—and the more tanning material fixed, the higher the leather’s hydrothermal stability and shrinkage temperature resistance. Chrome-tanned leather pH is typically between pH 3.8 and 4.2.

In religiously diverse countries, leather vendors typically clarify the kinds of leather in their products. For example, leather shoes bear a label that identifies the animal from which the leather came. This helps a Muslim not accidentally purchase pigskin, and a Hindu avoid cattle. Many vegetarian Hindus do not use any kind of leather. Such taboos increase the demand for religiously neutral leathers such as ostrich and deer.

The best example of this would be a bustle back style like the 311 Sofa or 705 Recliner. These styles are best in a soft, supple leather that is usually thinner. If you were to select a thick, stiff leather, it would take a long time for the leather to “break in.” They would not be as soft and the tailoring would not be quite as clean around the pleats. We will still make it, but please be aware that thick, stiff, and sometimes rustic leathers are best on styles with straighter lines or tight backs unless you don’t mind waiting for the leather to soften.

Remove grease stains. Grease stains can be left on a leather sofa from hair, beauty products, or food. It is best to try to remove these stains as soon as you notice them. Wipe the surface of the leather with a leather cleaning solution and then dry the leather thoroughly. If the stain remains, try sprinkling baking soda or cornstarch on the stain. Let the powder sit there for several hours and then brush away the residue.

Buff the sofa with a clean cloth. The next day, gently buff the leather to restore the shine. Begin at the top of the sofa and work your way down, buffing the leather in a small, circular motion. Repeat the conditioning every six to twelve months to keep the leather soft and shiny.

So how do you know what you are getting? At Smith Brothers, we only use top grain leather. We do not use split leather (the weaker, underside of the hide), and we never use leather-vinyl matches on our furniture. We also pay close attention to industry-standard tests to ensure each type of leather will meet the level of quality our customers have come to expect. Each hide is hand-inspected by our skilled specialists, and it is all cut, sewn, and upholstered at our own facility in Berne, Indiana.

Unlike with fabric, it is impossible to make a reversible leather cushion. This is because leather does not breathe, so any air inside the cushion cannot escape when you sit on it. This would be very uncomfortable, so we use a special breathable fabric on the underside of our leather cushions (as well as on the backs of our leather back cushions). For that reason, the cushions cannot be flipped around like they can in fabric.

Leather, usually vegetable-tanned, can be oiled to improve its water resistance. This currying process after tanning supplements the natural oils remaining in the leather itself, which can be washed out through repeated exposure to water. Russia leather was an important international trade good for centuries. Frequent oiling of leather, with mink oil, neatsfoot oil, or a similar material keeps it supple and improves its lifespan dramatically.
