ESTORIL is a semi-aniline leather made from European or Brazilian cow hides. ESTORIL has undergone a slight correction of the grain leaving 90% of the natural grain intact and most hallmarks visible. The surface has only received a thin layer of colour, not enough to close the pits, meaning that moisture and heat are transferred into the leather. ESTORIL requires more maintenance than a corrected leather as it is more sensitive towards liquids, dirt etc. ESTORIL is high-quality leather with a soft and comfortable seating comfort. Over the years ESTORIL will develop a beautiful patina. Ideal if you appreciate the beauty and characteristics of a natural leather, but prefer less maintenance than an aniline leather.
All leathers will stretch during use and creasing will eventually occur. This only adds character to the product. Light creases are to be expected as your new furniture is setting in. All materials display this characteristic adding beauty and uniqueness to your piece of furniture. The extent varies depending on cushions and your choice of leather.
Use BoConcept leather care products for protection and apply before use. We recommend using BoConcept Leather Cleaner for cleaning the entire sofa/chair 2–3 times a year. For general cleaning use only a clean, dry and non-abrasive white soft cloth. If necessary, wipe or lightly rub the entire surface with a clean, soft cloth wrung in soapy water (detergent only). Regularly vacuum under seat cushions using a soft brush nozzle to avoid scratching the surface. Avoid placing furniture in direct sunlight and sources of heat to prevent colour fading.
Contact with alcohol, thinner and benzene/benzole will cause colour and quality deterioration. Also avoid contact with chemical materials such as paints, nail polish or nail polish remover. Jeans and colourful clothes may discolour light leather surfaces.
