Caring for Craftsmanship

Timothy Oulton leathers are typically aniline, ensuring that the natural richness and feel of the leather’s original surface is maintained and celebrated as much as possible. Real leather is a natural product and as such, will often bear the hallmarks of its origin. Characteristics including scars, branding marks, creases and areas of grain variance are not detrimental to the durability of the product, they emphasise that authentic hides have been used rather than printed reproductions.

The natural and uncoated finish of Timothy Oulton leathers may acquire marks or colour discrepancies through wear and tear, for example when coming into contact with belt buckles or studding. This is normal and enriches the leather’s character and individuality over time.

Timothy Oulton offers a variety of leathers with different textures and finishes. It is important to note that softer hides may well develop wrinkles and creases during their first few weeks of use. This is normal and not a cause for concern. In the same way that new shoes need some breaking in, so does your leather sofa. Leather is naturally elastic and will stretch with use, this is not a defect but an inherent natural characteristic of leather.

Leather is one of the easiest upholstery materials to look after. It is naturally durable and grows more beautiful with age. Well-made leather furniture is an investment, and with a little bit of love and attention it can last for generations. We offer the following advice to help you care for your leather upholstery.
