What’s the difference between the different type of leathers?
There are three main types of leather we use on our chairs: top-grain/top, split, and glove soft.
Top-Grain/Top – After the leather is treated, a razor is used to split the leather into two halves: the top and the bottom. The top is the external side, and is the highest quality, both in terms of natural feel and durability. "Top Grain" comes from cows, and "Top" comes from pigs. These chairs will last the longest and look the most natural, but are priced a little higher.
Split Leather – The bottom half is called "split leather", and has grains pressed back into it to achieve a leather look. This leather is more economical than top grain, but is a little less durable.
Glove Soft Leather – This is made by breaking treated leather down and rebuilding it with synthetic composites. This is the softest and most comfortable leather available.
