1 - Leather Tanning Technology From The XIX Century

Nappa Leather possesses valuable features based on the “chrome" leather process. After being processed raw material , the leather sheets are soaked in a chromium salt mixture. Natural collagen fibers in the leather are bonded by chromium, making them durable and antimicrobial properties. Then, they are pH-neutralized and restored their flexibility through the "fatliquoring" process. Finally, they are dried, softened, and finished. 

The production process of Nappa leather is highly complex, requiring skilled craftsmanship from dyers. It is considered a top material in terms of “class". 


2 - Why Is Nappa Leather Considered The Top “Class"?

Nappa Leather attains its high position from the material. The raw leather sheets must be carefully selected from Full Grain (1st-ranking leather sort), to preserve the natural characteristics of the leather. Subsequently, the chrome tanning process maximizes these advantages.

  • Soft, smooth leather quality

This is the most remarkable feature of Nappa leather. Its softness and smoothness of leather surface are palpable, making it highly sought after for premium products where every touch is expensive.

  • Flexibility and durability 

Nappa Leather is more flexible and durable than regular leather, thanks to the adhesive process of chromium salt with collagen fibers. Products like shoes, bags, and furniture greatly favor this material.


  • Antimicrobial properties, durable

Durability is a standout feature of Nappa leather compared to traditionally tanned leather. It also has good heat resistance, antimicrobial properties, and water resistance, making products more durable and attractive.
