Kardiel’s distressed leather versions involve an initial process of Aniline Vat dying. During the vat dying process, the color penetrates the fibers of the leather through to the back. There are no corrections made to the epidermis as only the cleanest top shelf Italian hides are used. After dye curing, the hides then spends days undergoing an age old manual hand buffing, finishing and distressing process. The end result is a beautifully worn, comfortable with natural tonal variations and age distressing that breathes well. Over time the leather surface does not wear out but ages gracefully as it continues to patina with use.
The American Walnut species is widely admired for its exceptional color tone and graining.

American Walnut in its natural state is a premium choice for wood species and used often in modernist upscale furniture pieces. American Walnut is capable of coordinating well with other wood species both light and dark.

“Split Grain” is the most common leather used on furniture. This reproduction has been upgraded to Top Aniline leather and does not use Split Grain leather. Nonetheless, this paragraph will help explain the difference in quality and price between the leather types. Split Grain is the underside of the hide that has been separated from the surface or “top” of the hide. While defined as actual leather, Split Grain leather does not have the natural surface grain of the top of the cowhide. A topical layer of insoluble pigment is applied to the surface of split grain leather, which is then stamped or “grain embossed” to imitate the surface appearance of actual leather. This topical layer contains the color that the leather will be.
