LEATHER  SHADES

ENHANCING VEG TAN LEATHER


grain

epidermal structure

The epidermal top layer in full-grain leather retains the character of the natural hide. Vegetable tanning preserves this layer and the grain continues to mature and develop more character with age. 

sheen

grain translucency

The leather grain has a natural shine that reflects and refracts light even when they are tinted deep with a shade. Leather sheen improves as grains surface gets waxed and polished. Opaque leather lacks sheen. 

patina

shade variegations

Patina is the natural unevenness in shades that gets pronounced as grain layer is stretched and as leather absorbs moisture and oils. Patina develops with age, giving the leather a well-worn vintage appearance.    

FIVE SHADES

SHADES THAT MATURE


BEAUTY IS NOT SKIN DEEP

DEEP PENETRATING SHADES



DaVarg shading process impart dyes deep into the leather grain, instead of coating an opaque layer over the surface. This deep dyeing process enhances the sheen and patina as leather matures, while keeping every grain distinct. Unlike other synthetic coatings on artificial leather, these dyes do not cover the individual leather grains, rather tint the grains from inside out. The deep tinting also makes the leather heal after minor scratches. The leather cross section show the depth of tint and the proprietary DaVarg back coating. 


 


TRANSLUCENCY OF GRAIN

All DaVarg shades showcase every grain in the leather. Unlike other leathers coated with opaque pigments, DaVarg leather does not hide the natural character of grain. Not only does such dark coatings hide the imperfections in leather, but they are also used to disguise substandard leather by faking grain pattern with artificial embossing.

RED LINE STITCHING

Every Davarg article is stitched with the signature Red-Line stitching with contrasting burnt-orange color thread. We chose this color to compliment all 5 shades of Davarg Leather. Crafted by hand, one stitch at a time, the Red-Line stitching creates an elegant statement on every DaVarg article.

MATURE GRACEFULLY

GETTING BETTER WITH AGE

The shades darken as leather matures and develops its characteristic patina. This darkening is more pronounced on lighter shades such as KARMEL. The patina and level of darkening depends on the way leather is used and the amount of moisture and conditioning oils absorbed into the grain.  The ability to develop this multi-tone patina as it matures is a mark of authentic leather.
