Semi-Aniline Leather


Semi-aniline leather has a light finish, which makes the leather more resistant to dirt while also prolonging its longevity.


 


Before Use
When new, there is no need for any treatment.

Daily Cleaning
Wipe down with a soft, dry cloth. In case of light stains, you can use a soft cloth, tightly wrung in water, which has been boiled and then cooled to room temperature. Often, it will be preferable to leave light stains to simply be absorbed into the naturally developing patina (e.g. stains from a pen). If liquids are spilt, immediately wipe the entire surface with a soft cloth, tightly wrung in cold water. Avoid cleaning agents and sharp objects.

Loose cushions should be patted down regularly in order to preserve their shape.

Maintenance
For further maintenance, you can use leather cleanser or cream. Fredericia recommends Leather Master Soft Cleanser and Leather Master Protection Cream Premium. This type of maintenance should be carried out 1-2 times a year.

Before cleaning, you should vacuum-clean the leather with a soft mouthpiece at low suction. Then dampen a sponge with leather cleanser (e.g. Soft Cleaner), and wipe the sponge across the leather surface from side to side. In case of stains, wipe the sponge in circular movements on the stain. Do not rub the sponge on the leather! Wipe down loose cushions separately and make sure you cover the entire surface to avoid blotches and discolourations. Leave the cleanser to settle for at least one hour.

Then you may add leather cream (e.g. Leather Protection Cream Premium). First, shake the bottle and then apply using a soft, dry cloth as you massage the leather with soft circular movements. To finish off, polish lightly. The leather cream increases resistance to stains and spillages, while also nourishing and caring for the leather.

The products mentioned above cannot remove tough stains, but they cleanse and maintain the leather.
