Concept

As a natural product, leather plays a vital part in the image of Montis sitting furniture. We carefully select good-quality hides in the best state possible. The hide should remain natural looking. We obviously have to accept the natural characteristics of the leather such as deviations in color in certain areas, scars, differences in color between one hide and another in terms of the structure and the grain, insect bites and birthmarks. These natural irregularities in leather should be appreciated because they underscore the character of your furniture and the type of leather used to make it.

Alpaca is a type of aniline leather with a sheer finish and natural grain that allows it to retain its pure, natural appearance. This type of leathers undergoes a second, vegetable-based, tanning process with a transparent finish. The aniline finish brings out pronounced colour variations in the skin, and gives the skin an open aspect. Thanks to the difference in grain structures, the pigments can penetrate into the hide in various ways, by which the wonderful and attractive colour deviations are achieved.

Highland is a semi-aniline leather. The leather is finished with a transparent layer in a matching tone that does not cover up the natural characteristics of the leather. As a result, this type of leather is relatively easy to maintain and is soft and pliable to the touch.

Panama is a semi-aniline leather with a delicate, elegant appearance created by a machine-made print. The leather is finished with a transparent layer according to colour that does not obscure the natural characteristics of the leather. The result is a relatively easy to care for type of leather that feels soft and supple.

Rancho is a type of aniline leather with a sheer finish and natural grain that allows it to retain its pure, natural appearance. This type of leather undergoes a second, vegetable-based, tanning process with a transparent finish. The aniline finish brings out pronounced colour variations in the skin, and gives the skin an open aspect. The leather has a natural grain that clearly shows the structure variations in the skin. No two skins produce the same looking leather. Over time and with use, the leather becomes even more handsome as it “polishes”itself.
