Brava

Cortina created Brava to meet designers’ requests for a leather with the beauty and color depth of an aniline leather but with the scratch protection to perform in high traffic settings. With a smooth finish and glossy sheen, Brava is the perfect blend of beauty and function. Though treated to be durable, Brava boasts a subtle, two-toned quality that is characteristic of aniline leathers, as well as a slight variation in color and tone throughout each hide. Yet Brava will not scuff easily, will not lighten when stretched and is resistant to staining and fading.

Care & Cleaning

Aniline leathers are designed to age gracefully, increasing in beauty over time. Very little care is required—general upkeep requires only an occasional dusting with a clean cloth. Never use oils, saddle soaps, harsh cleaners or cleaners containing abrasives on aniline leather. Periodically, you may wish to gently wipe the leather with a clean, damp cloth to remove accumulated soil and allow it to air dry. Should a spill occur, remove immediately by blotting with a clean, dry, absorbent cloth to avoid permanent discoloration. Should soiling remain, a solution of lukewarm water and a mild soap such as Ivory® or a mild cleanser such as Woolite® may be used. Dampen a clean white cloth in the solution and gently wipe the affected area using a circular motion. Never apply the solution directly to the leather. Rinse completely with a clean cloth to ensure all cleaner is removed. Dry with a paper towel or dry cloth and allow to completely air dry. It may be necessary to repeat this procedure, allowing the leather to completely dry between applications. To avoid harming the leather, do not rub vigorously or for an extended period. It may not be possible to remove all stains from this natural product.
