What is aniline leather?

Aniline leather means that the leather has been dyed exclusively with soluble dyes without covering the surface with a topcoat paint or insoluble pigments. This results in the hide retaining its natural surface within the grain, i.e., visible pores, scars etc., of the complete original hides skin structure. Because Aniline Leather is the most natural looking leather each piece of furniture is unique as the surface characteristics of the hide remains visible, the creases are very distinct because they have not been filled with a surface coating.
