The Novin Leather Standard
LEATHER is a natural product which has been a prized commodity throughout history. The art of preserving animal hides and tanning them into leather is an ancient and respected trade of artisans. Cattle hides are the major source of NOVIN leather and are used because of their availability, strength and hide size.
LEATHER is one of the most durable, natural products in society and FULL GRAIN LEATHER outlasts most fabrics and has an exceptionally long, useful life.
It must be highlighted that NOVIN LEATHER manufactures it’s own FULL GRAIN leather, in it’s own manufacturing facility under ISO standards. This leather and all our products are recognised to be of the highest INTERNATIONAL quality and standards.
IT NEEDS TO BE NOTED there are indeed many names used when labelling and branding leather goods and products! however there are FOUR internationally recognized terms and standards used when referring to LEATHER TYPES & LEATHER QUALITY STANDARDS:
- FULL GRAIN LEATHER – this is the BEST leather you can buy
- TOP GRAIN LEATHER – this is the ‘middle of the road’ leather and is used by most designer brands.
- GENUINE LEATHER – this is the cheapest lowest quality leather you can buy
- BONDED or BLENDED LEATHER – these are mixed scraps of leather and PVC mixed
LEATHER is fire resistant and emits no toxic fumes even when exposed to intense heat.
FULL GRAIN LEATHER products won’t crack or peel and will not tear along the seam lines and stiched areas under normal wear and tear conditions.
NOVIN LEATHER can be cleaned, wax treated and repaired very inexpensively. (Please refer to our leather ‘care package’ and leather guideline information)
