Sophisticated natural oil pull up leather, rich and infused colors. Caress’s unique finishing classifies it as a more natural version of a patent leather.

Matte in finish with a firm, strong character upon upholstery, Caress can add structure to any look and imparts a tailored appearance in any environment or style, modern or traditional.

This type of non-corrected leather allows nature’s markings such as scars and wrinkles, colour variances to show and is considered part of the natural beauty of a genuine leather product. Signs of wear will show and a rich patina, or shine, will increase over time.

Leather is a natural product. Distinctive markings and nuances in its texture and color are natural in occurrence and a testament to its authenticity.

Cuttings for approval (CFAs) are recommended for this leather. Expect slight color variation & textures from each hide and dye lot to dye lot. If you opt out of the CFA process, CTL Leather is not responsible for color selections made from swatches.

CFA’s are cuttings to give a general idea of the color reference of the hide & dye lot, but are NOT expected to be an exact colour reference. Dye lot variation is a feature of working with pure anilines, semi anilines and wax pull up leathers and must be understood.

NOTE: Due to color variations on different monitors and color printers, before making exact color and texture matches, we recommend that you request an actual sample to ensure proper color representation as many monitors cannot display colors accurately. CTL Leather is not responsible for color selections made from this website or in lieu of requesting CFAs.
