A common problem with two-tone leathers is the loss of the fashion effects coloring through wear, mainly due to a lack of rub-resistance protection during routine care. These delicate secondary fashion effects often wear off from friction rubs and become easily removed during cleaning, especially with prolonged body oil, grease, and sweat contaminations.
A holistic restoration of the structure and the loss of secondary finishes are done in stages. It is first prep clean with Degreaser-2.2 and followed with Rinse-3.0. Leather creases and wrinkles are relaxed during the Hydrator-3.3 process to return to their original dimension. Diminished fatliquor is replenished with Fatliquor-5.0 for softness and strength. Impregnating from the suede side to tighten up loose fibers with Impregnator-26 rectifies overstretching. The surface is sealed with Adhesor-73 before 2Tone-37 recreation of the matching fashion effect. MicroTop-54S satin seals and protects for aesthetics and wear. A non-stick, rub-resistant protector imparts a buttery feel with a classic leather scent Protector-B+ completes this holistic restoration most common to these two-tone fashion effects leathers.
Sauvage/Molted/Marbled leather finishes are two-tone fashion effects with two or more colors that add depth and character to the leather to create a multi-colored appearance. This effect is done with various application techniques, such as random spraying or spraying through a stencil with different shades of colors. Marbled leathers have a unique finishing process that causes translucent dyestuff to separate into a vein-like or granite appearance.
