Strong, pliable and fully conditioned, Pompeii is an aniline leather with a special treatment of oils, waxes and tallows.
An excellent slick surface feel, along with a light pull up creates a beautiful two-tone effect and will become lighter in areas of heavy use. The natural patinas that develop will only get better with age, taking on a beautiful aged look over the years.
With natural vegetable tanned leathers, depending on the environment and frequency to which the leather is exposed, you can expect such leathers will darken if exposed to water and oils, dirt, denim, etc, whereas they will lighten when exposed to extended sunlight. It is best to avoid direct heat as this may cause narrowing or cracking of the leather’s surface.
Stocked in a weight of 3.5oz to 4.0oz , this leather is also available in small bespoke orders of weights ranging from 4oz to 6oz.

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.
