Hemsen Aniline is a semi-aniline leather that has only a slightly pigmented surface. This means that this is as natural as leather can get while still having some exterior protection.
This leather is a classic, soft, slightly pigmented hide that will upholster well on any design, and remains popular for its beauty, touch, and greater durability. It is a great option for those who want the feel of a natural hide but require some protection.
Origin: European Cattle
Hemsen Aniline is a semi-aniline leather that maintains a layer of protection - albeit a thin layer. As opposed to full-aniline leather, semi-aniline leather is slightly less soft, but to an unskilled eye, the difference would be difficult to feel.
Lesser attention to maintenance would not be as harmful as opposed to its full-aniline counterpart - although we would never recommend that! Please maintain all leathers from the elements.
Scott is a lightly embossed, top-grain, semi-aniline (medium protection with corrected pigment) dyed leather produced on European and South American rawhide. Each hide has a nice and soft feeling to match an elegant look. It remains one of the most popular leathers for its beauty and durability.
Origin: South American and European Cattle
