This sturdy leather requires very little care. It feels less supple and appears a bit stiff, certainly at first. This leather quality is a question of personal preference, budget and user circumstances. With Wapiti leather you choose for dependability under intense use.

The special character of Senso leather is due to its thickness. The unusual structure on the surface of this heavy leather is caused by a shrinking effect during the drying process.

Emotion Cool, tough, with a smooth feel.

Emotion Leather with “body”.

This mid-European leather is a true speciality in the Leolux collection. The hide is approximately 2 mm thick (almost twice as thick as “normal” leather). This leather accentuates the craftsmanship of furniture made to order. Arkadia leather is soft and supple as only a real hide, real leather, feels. The durability of leathers in this class is legendary.

Type of use Intensive use, suitable for a busy family life.

Type of use Normal to intensive use.

This quality leather stems from young bulls on European soil. The skins are processed using the latest know-how and tanning techniques into a highly exclusive type of leather with a smooth surface free of grain. Bimardo has a natural grip which lends the leather an exceptionally soft and warm feel. The beautiful look, the splendid touch and the carefully selected colours underline the luxury feeling this leather exudes. With discreet colours and produced with love for the craft, Bimardo is a brilliant choice for the leather aficionado.

The super-thick Rino leather has not been put aside for every model, but for lovers of robust, thick leather this is a solid choice. In contrast to most furniture leather, which is split into a thickness of about 1 or 2 mm, with Rino practically the entire hide is processed to become furniture leather and the full thickness of the heaviest European hides is used. The distinctive character of Rino is achieved by a natural shrinkage effect during the tanning process.

While finishing this exclusive Leolux leather, a softly glimmering film with tiny metal parts is applied under the top layer. This creates a leather with an extremely luxurious appearance. The absolutely top choice for lovers of furniture with an exclusive look.

Zerlina is made from the very best of cow hides and coloured with minerals, the most environment-friendly method meeting today’s ecological standards. The leather is not sealed so that it can “breathe”; a thin protective layer protects it from the worst effects of dirt and moisture, whilst enabling it to retain its natural characteristics. The irregularities and colour differences, even within a hide, form the “certificate of authenticity” of this beautiful natural leather. Over the years and through use it gets a patina. This means that the Zerlina grows even more beautiful as the years go by.

Temperamental nubuck with a charming and warm look. Scouring this pure aniline leather on the grain side creates a “write” effect. This gives Suave a soft and pleasant touch, making it one of the loveliest leather qualities in the Leolux collection.

Emotion Smooth and warm grip Type of use Elegant use Maintenance Regularly roughen a little with a “reviving sponge”

With the robust Bronto, Leolux has struck the perfect balance between user-friendliness, aesthetics and emotive value. The super-thin protective layer means that this leather variety should in theory be classified amongst the semi-anilines, but given its aniline look that actually does Bronto too little justice. The silky-smooth grip, the thickness and the naturally alternating grain pattern lend this leather the emotion that only the loveliest leather qualities can offer. Maintaining authenticity was the point of departure in its development, whereby the natural attributes of the leather should be kept. That makes Bronto the loveliest choice for lovers of authentic leather. Emotion Robust, pure nature Type of use Normal use Maintenance Leolux Water / Ecocleaner + Aniline care
