Product Information

Newcastle

Colour : Black (New65)

Description :

Newcastle is a top grain, pur aniline leather finished with a blend of oils to achieve a pull-up effect and a glossy finish.  Newcastle comes into its own when used on tightly upholstered applications as the colours change on the furniture creating a classic “old saddle” appearance.  Healed scars, scratches, neck and belly wrinkles will be apparent throughout these hides.  Since Newcastle is pure aniline leather, hides will fade in prolonged sunlight.

Thickness : 1.0/1.1mm
Average hide size : 50sqft (4.6 sqm)

Suitable for domestic and marine applications

Care Instructions

Newcastle is a full grain, pure aniline leather finished with a blend of oils to achieve a pull-up effect and a glossy finish. Newcastle comes into it’s own when used on tightly upholstered applications as the colour changes on the furniture creating a classic “old saddle” appearance. Healed scars, scratches, neck and belly wrinkles will be apparent throughout these hides. Since Newcastle is pure aniline, hides will fade in prolonged sunlight.  

Cleaning: – a slightly dampened cloth and a pure mild soap solution can be used for light marks. However, extra care should be taken, as this type of leather can easily be damaged by spillages and soiling. Do not wet the leather as water staining may occur. Do not use detergent products. Read carefully the labels on proprietary leather products to check that they are suitable for aniline leathers.
