  • Poltrona Frau has realised a specific research and performed scrupulous tests before arriving at the definition of Saddle Executive leather. Inside a house or an office, saddle leather is subject to stresses of daily use and temperature changes. Softness, dimensional stability, quality, elasticity and durability over time are the main characteristics of Saddle Executive, necessary qualities for an innovative product collection such as Trust, by Lievore - Altherr - Park.

    The nature of the material is selected adult male cattle, of European origin tanned with chrome and colored in drums with organic and synthetic dyeing pigments with passing dying. The fatting in the drum and the finishing help to preserve and enhance the natural softness of the material, giving a soft and silky feel. The final effect is a flat natural surface with a slight cloudy effect. Due to its characteristics Saddle Executive leather is stable to light and has a good resistance to stains. Any small scars or roughness testify the authenticity of the material and its natural origin.
