Stonewash

Cortina’s Stonewash begins with the finest, aniline grade South German bull hides, meticulously selected for their tight, firm hand and beautiful, full grain. The hides are then vacuum dried, a process which adds density to the leather and creates a silky-smooth texture. A careful hand polishing then enhances the sheen. There is no topcoat applied to the surface, resulting in a classic naked, pure aniline, transparent finish that allows the natural characteristics to be evident. Stonewash will develop a patina over time and age gracefully in response to everyday use.

Care & Cleaning

Pure aniline and aniline leathers are designed to age and patina gracefully, increasing in beauty over time. Cortina Leathers’ pure anilines/aniline leathers are treated in the drum for water and soil repellency and so can be maintained with very little care. General upkeep requires only an occasional dusting with a clean cloth. Never use oils, saddle soaps, conditioners or cleaners on pure aniline or aniline leather. Pure aniline/aniline leathers have the least amount of protective finish, so spills and soiling should be removed immediately to avoid permanent discoloration. Should a spill occur, blot immediately using a clean, dry, absorbent cloth. Should soiling remain, use lukewarm water to minimally dampen a clean white cloth and gently blot the affected area. Blot dry with paper towel or dry cloth, and allow to air dry. It may be necessary to cease efforts prior to total stain removal lest over-rubbing or over-wetting do additional harm to the leather’s appearance, so caution must be used. It may not be possible to remove all stains from this natural product.
