Cortina’s Chiaro is a smooth, high-sheen aniline leather with tremendous clarity and depth. It has both oil and wax treatments, making the stain and wear performance strong for an aniline. Chiaro showcases, rather than hides, some of the natural markings that make each piece of this organic product unique. As with all anilines, color may vary across the hide and from hide to hide, adding a rich and organic sophistication to designs. Made in Italy from European hides, Chiaro is a beautiful leather for a wide range of applications and is offered in ten designer-inspired colors.
