Designed in Italy on light weight hides, Capri is a full-bodied half grain leather with a soft wax, cracked appearance that exudes simple yet sophisticated elegance.
Hides have been aniline dyed and hand buffed to achieve the unique, cracked vintage look without compromising a very soft and natural hand.
Due to the look and lightness of the leather, Capri is best suited for down pillow, soft seating applications.
It offers striking contrasts in color in the peaks and valleys of the cracked grain across the leather’s surface. Suitable for the Contemporary mind to the Transitional.
