Can I have more information about the leather?
MUSH Inc offers a wide array of leather choices as well as a broad palette of colors.
Remember that leather is a natural material—no two hides are identical; each accepts dye somewhat differently, resulting in shading differences. Other characteristics may include healed scars from sources such as barbed wire fencing, insect bites, stretch marks, fat and neck wrinkles, as well as other impressions. Therefore, variations with each hide, although not frequent, can be expected.
Full top grain, fully aniline dyed cowhides. Many of these are "pull-up" type leathers. These are leathers that have been impregnated with oils and/or waxes to create the "pull-up" effect: a lightening of the leather color, as well as creating a rich look and exceptional feel.
Care should be taken to tend to spills immediately. Regular dusting and vacuuming would be recommended, as well as application of a good leather conditioner every 6-12 months.
While we offer two separate and distinct pricepoints, all of our leathers are top-grain hide with equal strength and durability. The reason for two pricepoints is due to the selectness of the hides.
Tanneries inspect and group hides by the amount of natural marking and scarring on each hide. These "hide markings" result from barbwire scratches, insect bites, urine burns and other natural occurrences. Hide markings are normal to leather furniture and should not be considered as defects and actually add to the natural beauty of your leather.
Hides which have more abundant markings are considered to be less select, and therefore are less expensive; the tannery will apply an additional opaque pigment to these hides in order to make them cosmetically more appealing. This application of pigment will add protection to these hides, which makes them easily soap and water washable.
Hides with fewer markings are considered to be more select and therefore, more expensive. These hides are reserved to be used as "naked" leathers, which by description, are leathers with no additional topcoat added. These hides will offer the most natural look and the softest feel.
Can you send me sample swatches of your leather?
Yes, up to three color leather samples may be sent out to one address.
Do any of your products contain any animal bi-products?
Although none of our products contain any porcine derivatives, some of our fragrance and toiletries range do contain animal by-products. However, we are working to eradicate this in exchange for vegetarian alternatives. Other lines of toiletries are 100% natural. For most products a detailed description is provided which lists its origins.
