The natural beauty and properties of natural leather weave a tapestry that both attracts us and lasts for generations longer than any other material. This is the most important of the sustainability stories – not often, but good choice. For years, we have used sustainable practices when creating our leathers.
There are dozens of reasons to buy a leather jacket. It is one of the oldest and most popular jacket styles on the market, originating from the first bomber pilots of World War I. Leather jackets also retain their value more than other jackets. So when you’re ready to sell, you can get a higher price.
However, the real beauty of a leather jacket comes from its stylish appearance. Fine texture, classic appearance and glossy appearance are unmatched in style. Regardless of your personal taste in fashion, you will appreciate the inherited beauty of a genuine leather jacket. Head over to our store and start searching for the perfect leather jacket today.
Leather is naturally one of the softest materials on the planet, so it’s probably used in the manufacture of jackets, trousers and other apparel. However, over time, it can become stiff and less comfortable to wear. However, you can counteract this phenomenon by regularly conditioning your leather jacket. Leather jackets require little ongoing maintenance, but all it needs is routine conditioning with a product like Saddle Soap. Saddle Soap and similar leather care products are designed to moisturize the leather, add moisture to its pores and prevent it from drying out later. A good rule of thumb is to moisten your leather jacket with a conditioning product like “Saddle Soap” every two to three months. This should make your leather jacket soft, supple and comfortable to wear.
Leather, like all fabrics and materials, is subject to fading. This isn’t something that happens overnight. Conversely, wearing a leather jacket for months or years can eventually lead to discoloration. Some people actually prefer the faded look of leather as it resembles an old, aged look not found in new leather jackets and clothing. However, if you prefer the new skin look, you’ll be happy to hear that this phenomenon can be avoided. The skin fades as a result of exposure to the sun’s strong ultraviolet (UV) rays. When exposed to sunlight for a long time, the skin turns a softer and lighter color. Therefore, you can prevent your leather jacket from fading by limiting its exposure to sunlight. That doesn’t mean you have to stash your leather jacket in a closet for the day. Rather, store it in a shaded area, such as a closet, with little or no sun exposure.
The leather is known for cracking when it dries. However, there are a few steps you can take to protect your leather jacket from this phenomenon. First of all, it is important to note that humidity absorbs and releases moisture from its surroundings depending on the humidity level. When the skin is exposed to a humid environment, it absorbs moisture from the air and absorbs it into its pores. But when leather is exposed to a dry environment, the opposite happens: it releases moisture. And leaving too much moisture can cause the leather to crack. Therefore, conventional wisdom should lead you to believe that the best way to prevent your leather jacket from cracking is to moisturize it regularly, something we talked about earlier.
Of course, you can also protect your leather jacket from cracking by choosing a high-quality jacket. Some cheap leather jackets on the market are made with low quality materials and workmanship that are more susceptible to cracking. By choosing a high-quality leather jacket, such as the ones sold at LeatherCult, you can be sure that it is protected from this type of damage.
Leather is one of man’s earliest and most useful discoveries. Our ancestors used leather to protect themselves from the elements. Primitive man hunted wild animals for food, then made clothing, shoes, and raw tents from hides. As then, the hides used today are a by-product. Animals are raised not for their hides, but for the meat, dairy and wool industries. About half of all leather produced today is used to make shoes, and about 35% is used for clothing.
Leather is a material almost as old as humanity. A wearable natural second skin has provided humanity with protection, warmth and grace for thousands of years. Is this material still up to date?
Early humans were supposed to hunt meat (protein, iron). Even if sustainability was unknown to them, they did not waste any of their prey, as the animals could provide much more than food. Horns, claws and hooves; used as amulets, pins or weapons. Then they learned how to use the skin and hair. They discovered that skins washed in a pool made of old wood did not rot on their shoulders like others. They learned how to treat them and turn them into leather. Over time, they became more proficient at drying, salting and tanning, making their new second skin soft, durable and strong against wind and bad weather.
The expansion of the industry in the 18th and 19th centuries created a demand for new leathers, such as the siege of leathers to use machinery. The invention of the automobile, the demand for softer, lighter shoes with a stylish look, and an overall increase in living standard created a demand for soft, supple, colored leather. Traditional vegetable tanned leather was too hard and thick for these requirements and hence the use of chromium salt was adopted and chrome tanning became the standard for modern footwear, fashion and upholstery leathers.
Modern technology has allowed innovation in the leather industry, as the development of chemicals and sophisticated processing methods have greatly expanded leather aesthetics and feel and possible applications. Leather continues to be the material of choice not only for commercial and residential furniture, but also for automotive, aerospace and marine applications.
Leather tanning is the process of converting cleaned, perishable rawhide or hides into leather to preserve its natural beauty and natural properties. The most common tanning methods are Chromium and Herbal Tanning. Chrome tanning is the most common form of tanning.
Chrome tanned leather is tanned using chromium salts. It is softer and more flexible than vegetable tanned leather and does not change color or lose its shape like vegetable tanned leather does in water. Chrome-tanned leathers are also lighter in colour.
Vegetable tanned leather is tanned using tannins and other natural ingredients found in trees and plants. The result is leather that has more body and firmness than chrome-tanned leather.
Leathers are usually treated several times during the tanning process with agents that will increase the physical strength of the leather and ultimately provide various desired properties. This is known as “retanning”. Most of our leathers are retanned using chrome tanning agents or a combination of both chrome and vegetable tanning agents before they are dyed and finished.
Dyeing is the process of dipping the leather into the dye and rolling it into a rotating drum to ensure maximum penetration of the leather into the dye.
Aniline paint is a translucent water-based paint with no added pigments. As the aniline dye is absorbed, natural markings and natural features such as scars and wrinkles appear in each skin. Since the absorption of dye can differ from area to area, leather often shows minor changes in color, just as it changes when wood is stained. For example, loose areas of skin typically accept more dye and appear darker. These distinctive marks and nuances in texture and color should be considered signs of natural beauty and are a testament to its authenticity.
Semi-aniline dye offers some of the benefits of color consistency and increased cleanability, while a small amount of pigment or lacquer is added to allow the natural properties of the hide to still show. For example, lightly pigmented leather will not show a mark like an aniline dyed leather if you scratch it with your fingernail.
In general, finishing includes any process performed after the dyeing step, such as embossing, grinding or polishing, to achieve a desired result for the leather in terms of look and feel. Some leathers are naturally ground to increase the grain of the leather or to soften the hand. The skins are rolled in rotating drums and sprayed with a combination of heat and water mist during the grinding process.
Most of our leathers are treated with a combination treatment of beeswax and oil, which fully penetrates the skin and provides natural resistance to moisture. These treatments are designed to bring out all the features that make leather a truly original and natural product.
Similar to the fine grain of wood, each leather contains numerous nature signatures that are unique. These signatures can be found in the form of healed scars, wrinkles, and differences in grain. Because most leather has no artificial polish applied to the surface, natural variations in texture are not masked or hidden. As each year passes, the leather will acquire a rich and beautiful patina with a unique charm and richness of character. During tanning, we use various techniques to enhance the natural appearance of our leathers. For example, ironing with heat and pressure creates a clear and shiny surface with the advantage of greater moisture resistance on some leathers.
For customers seeking even color consistency and maximum protection against abrasion and scratches, we offer a range of leathers finished with a protective pigment or topcoat. Our goal is to provide consistent color but still provide a soft supple leather. We support almost all of our products for restaurant use, with the exception of suede and nubuck leathers.
