Pelle Frau® Nubuck is a full-grain aniline-colored leather, dedicated to Plexi Case objects designed by Poltrona Frau Style & Design Center. It stands out for its transparency, its color clouding and its \"writing\" effect which gives the leather an extremely velvety, soft and pleasant touch.

The coloring takes place only with synthetic and transparent substances that allow a full-thickness coloring without any layer of surface finish. Its characteristic writing effect is obtained through specific and measured working processes. These qualities, combined with natural characteristics of the skin (scars, low grain, wrinkles, insect bites, etc.), confer uniqueness and guarantee its authenticity.
