All about leather
Leather represents a large percentage of furniture sold today
More than 50% of all furniture sold is upholstered in leather and it is now almost a standard interior for cars not just in luxury makes as was once the case. Add to this the handbag and garment markets and we begin to see that what was once perceived as a luxury item has become an everyday product accessible to everyone.
There are many benefits of leather,
It is more durable than fabric so it lasts longer
Leather adjusts to body temperature making it very comfortable to sit on
Leather production these days is very sophisticated which enables manufacturers to create many looks to suit a wide variety of homes and styles
Leather is now more affordable and there are suites to suit all pockets
Leather can be cleaned and cared for easily, and when done properly, maintains a high level of appearance throughout its life
Leather production has changed rapidly over the last 2 decades and has now become very much a fashion product with colours and styles ever changing to meet the demands of the market
