Innovations in leather treatment, different textures and ground breaking applications available allow for limitless possibilities for upholstery of outdoor furniture. Our team talk to Marine Leather, world leading Italian manufacturer of luxury leather, about their latest offerings and tips when considering leather upholstery.
There are a number of physical properties of leather which make it a unique material for upholstery and just as much for outdoor furniture if you haven’t considered it before, including:
- resistance to liquids and oil, while offering permeability to water vapour;
- high tensile strength;
- resistance to flexing, tear and puncture;
- comfort factor – as a natural product, leather contains air which is a poor conductor of heat – making it very relaxing to touch and retain its cool feel in the summer;
- durability through the years.
Marine Leather have been at the forefront of luxury leather manufacturing for three generations with careful selection of raw materials, vibrant creativity and desire to constantly evolve. Their award winning articles “Shark” and “Sealskin” were developed to withstand the most extreme climatic conditions. A special re-tanning process makes the hides particularly resistant to dust, airborne salt, water and stains, while maintaining the suppleness and softness for years. This is practical not only on a yacht but seaside environments, hospitality or spa settings as well as locations with extreme temperature.
In addition to vast number of options of colours, textures, woven and embroidered collections their products adhere to the strict regulations of IMO certifications with regards to fire-resistant treatment.
Our collections offer something for every taste as well as some truly extraordinary applications (embroidery, hand weaving, laser cutting and pleating techniques) which have been created for specific requests from the world’s top interior designers. We offer virtually endless possibilities while retaining the control of being able to easily customise even for smaller orders.
Marine Leather is a perfect match that combines beautiful aesthetic with practicality and low maintenance offering boundless possibilities for any outdoor setting.
