For our online shop we will use an average area to reflect the price (+- 10%) You will be billed on actual area, determined after the hide/skin is selected. As each skin / hide is usually a different size, the area of the skin /hide is used to determine the price. Leather is pre-measured from the tanneries in dm2 (10cm x10cm) 1mt2=100dm2

Although there are a great variety of leather types, leather can usually be categorized as follows :
The type you choose depends on the appearance you want, the product and the usage which the product receives :- Aniline leather is the most natural looking, with natural surface visible, but is less resistant to soiling Semi-aniline leather is somewhere in-between on both counts, having a light surface coating Pigmented (protected) leather is the most durable but is less natural in appearance, having a polymer coating ...so if you're buying a leather suite and you have a young family, an aniline suite probably isn't for you!
