Tribe

A pure-aniline, naked leather, Tribe is a version of nubuck, with a worn, unfinished look. Like classic “bomber jacket” leather, Tribe is produced on thicker than average hides for a rugged texture. The hides are drum-dyed and then coated with a light transparent sheen. Each hide is then individually hand-rubbed in random areas, which varies the coloration and enhances the sheen. Tribe hides look naturally worn and comfortable, with the sheen and texture varying throughout the hide, as if the leather has been used for decades.

Care & Cleaning

For general upkeep occasionally vacuum using an upholstery attachment and brush the nap using a soft-bristle suede upholstery brush. All Cortina Leathers’ suedes and nubucks are treated in the drum for water repellency, and can be maintained with reasonable care. However, we advise immediate attention in the event of spills or soiling. For spills, blot immediately using a clean, dry absorbent cloth and brush to restore the nap. If soiling remains, minimally dampen a clean cloth with water and gently dab—never rub the leather. Use a soft brush to restore the nap. Avoid over-wetting this leather to prevent discoloration.
