Cutting Instructions for Genuine Leather
A hide of genuine leather is nature's product and caution must be exercised in cutting one. The above diagram shows various areas of a hide and they are cut as follows:
Section A should be used in cutting seat tops, inside backs, cushion bands and other sections that will receive the most strain and usage of flexing. Section A is the prime portion of a hide.
Section B should be used for outside arms, backs, hidden bands or any other parts of furniture that will receive little or no flexing
The flank sections must be used on outside backs and non wearing surfaces in order to avoid trouble. Flank fibers run generally in one direction as indicated by the arrow. In applying flank section to a chair, the first pull should be taken in the direction of the arrow. A stretch at right angles to the direction of the arrow may cause the finish to crack.
The Care of Leather
Genuine leather requires little care. Dust it regularly, and minor spots can be washed off. Use lukewarm water and mild soap, but nothing abrasive. Work up some suds and go over the surface with cheesecloth or a turkish towel. Rinse off any soap film with clean water and toweling. It may dry dull, but normal gloss can be restored by rubbing with clean toweling. These instructions apply to finished leather only, not to any suede. Never use furniture polish, oil, varnish or ammonia.
It is important to bear in mind that all of our leathers that we sample are hand finished. Many of the colors are mottled two-tone leathers and in a small sample it is not possible to portray the beauty of the color variation and shadings which occur in the hand padding and glazing.
