Colour : Essential 5197
This bold and contemporary range of leathers has been developed in conjunction with leading design experts for all contract applications. The colours have been specifically chosen to reflect the requirements of today and to give designers a glimpse into the future.
Made on better quality corrected grain hides and finished with a pigmented topcoat, which is lightly embossed with an artificial grain pattern. It has a smoother tighter grain finish than Shelly and offers good light fastness and stain resistance. Milano is a soft leather with excellent durability.
Thickness : 0.9/1.0mm
Average hide size : 50 sqft (4.6 sqm)
Suitable for domestic, contract and marine applications
Dust regularly with a soft lint free cloth, vacuum regularly with a soft brush as the accumulation of dust and crumbs, especially under seat cushions, can cause premature wearing. For intensive cleaning, use a damp clean cloth with the soft cleaner from JMT to remove light staining and apply leather care lotion P after cleaning. This keeps the leather in good condition because it re-fattens and moisturizes the leather and builds up the impregnation. Also, the additional sun protection helps to prevent early fading. Repeat 3-4 times per year.
