Leather Chair / April 28, 2018 / Celina Wooten
Make sure to keep dust off the chair. This is important, as dust carries many oily bacteria that can damage leather chairs. Dust your chair once a day or at least once a week if possible. Check to see if your chair is water resistant. If the leather on the chair is shiny, it most likely is protected from liquids. However, some chairs are non-finished, and these should not be cleaned with liquid products. Whether or not it is water-resistant, always use caution when dealing with leather.
Another type of these chairs that many people love is one made from buckskin leather. This is made from 100% deer skin which is first treated then soaked in a solution made of wood, ash and lime before being ready for the upholstering process. Things made from buckskin leather are known to be very soft, supple and water-resistant and just exactly what you need for a combination of comfort and aesthetics. Yet another type of leather being used by many chair manufacturers is that which is chrome-tanned. This type is also known to be less elastic than vegetable-tanned leather. It is also a lot less expensive than other leather types and it dyes very well. One way of telling this type of leather is to check its edges. When they're gray, the leather used is probably chrome-tanned.
