Glitterati Line Details
The brilliant glimmer and variation of Glitterati makes a statement on any piece. Best described as a multi-toned metallic leather with a bright and transparent finish, Glitterati is chromium tanned European hide with a vegetable re-tannage, resulting in a leather of depth and substance. Special finishing products are used to create both roundness and softness, with a hint of wax and oil to obtain a subtly distressed and aged effect. Finally, a protective topcoat of crushed metal gives the hides a resistant yet glowing finish.
Care & Cleaning
Semi-aniline and pigmented leathers are resistance to wear, scratching and staining so they require very little maintenance to maintain their beauty over time. General upkeep requires only an occasional dusting with a clean cloth. Periodically, you may wish to gently wipe the leather with a clean, damp cloth to remove accumulated soil and allow it to air dry. Leather conditioners and protectants, such as those by Leather Master® can be used as directed. Should a spill occur, blot immediately using a clean absorbent cloth or paper towel. Should soiling remain or for a more thorough cleaning, Cortina Leathers Universal Cleaner High-Tech Wipes or a solution of lukewarm water and a mild cleaner, such as Ivory® soap or Woolite®, may be used. Dampen a clean white cloth and gently wipe the affected area using a circular motion. 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. Repeat the cleaning process as needed, allowing the leather to dry between applications. While it is possible to remove many deep stains and soiling from semi-aniline and pigmented leathers, it may not be possible to remove all stains from this natural product.
