York is a butter-soft pure aniline leather made from European cow hides. The skins are finished with a thin protective layer, making them less susceptible to stains. York is also characterised by its natural marks and ability to take on patina. It is the choice for families wanting the high-end look and feel of aniline leather, with less maintenance. York has been finished with a thin protection to make the leather more stainable. However, aniline leather will always be very susceptible. The thin protection makes York suitable for families who want high-end pure aniline leather – but have a need for soft cleaning.
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. 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.
