Aniline leather's common problem is the sun fading from direct sunlight and UV lighting.
Activating the dormant dyestuff within the leather with hydration refreshes the color to the surface, just like reactivating tea leaves with hot water, in this process we use Hydrator-3.3.
When the leather structure is replenished with fatliquor, (fat and oil) it further intensifies the color saturation for a good inspection before considering a color refinishing.
Aniline leather's periodic hydrating and reconditioning help to keep leather perpetually supple, preventing the leather from dryness that leads to stiffness and cracking.
Aniline leather when new is soft and natural and comes mainly from the hide of a cow, large enough for making upholstery. They are chemically converted into leather through tanning, dyeing, and fatliquoring sequences. The leather becomes an amphoteric protein material and is pH sensitive, thus cleaning and restoring with leather-safe products that have a pH value between 3 to 5 is highly recommended or otherwise, leather denatures with the common side effects are manifested as tackiness, dye bleeding, and loss its suppleness, becomes stiff and crack.
