Volo Leather

Volo leather is a lightly corrected, aniline leather. The light correction process refines the surface so it better accepts the grain enhancement done prior to finishing. Volo receives a special retannage that tightens the grain and provides a finer hand that other corrected leathers.

Sabrina Leather

Sabrina leather is a very popular full grain leather. The special retannage Sabrina receives provides a smooth, tight grain and supple hand, making it an excellent choice for both elegance and high-traffic use. The average thickness is 0.9 - 1 mm, and the average weight is 2.25 - 2.5 oz per square foot. Sabrina leather is Greenguard certified and available in 114 colors.
