Leather's durability exceeds most other fabric's durability by 4 to 5 times, thus it is a good investment. It is fire resistant and wears gracefully, becoming more supple with age. UV resistance varies depending on the leather color coat and finish.

Regular maintainance using professional leather cleaners and conditioners will preserve investment of your leather furniture. Colored conditioners (available below) can hide minor scratches and blemishes.

Eventually, after many years of use, leather may begin to show signs of color fading, stains, scratches. If your leather has been damaged, KJ's offers professional leather repair and restoration.

Top Coated or Protected Leather


Top coated or protected leather is best identified by it's smooth, grained texture.  The finish has a semi-gloss or "matte" finish with no evidence of a "knapp".
To test this type of leather; place a small droplet of water onto the surface of the leather.  The water droplet will sit on the surface of the leather and will not soak into the leather immediately.

Semi-Aniline leather


Semi-aniline has the appearance of Top Coated Leather but does not have the protected coating. This is the most difficult type of leather to determine. A test may be performed to determine this type of leather by placing a small droplet of water onto the surface of the leather. This droplet of water will immediately soak into the leather and create a dark spot, which will dry and disappear in a matter of minutes.
This leather should be routinely maintained with conditioners to protect the leather from absorption of soils, liquids and staining.  Protecting with professional products is the key to preserving the longevity of the leather. If deep soiling and stains occur, the remedy is professional refinishing of the leather, offered by KJ's.  

Note: occasionally, a manufacturer will apply a repellant material to the surface of this leather to reduce the amount of soiling and staining that will naturally occur.  If this product has been applied, the water droplet will sit on the surface and "bead up" making it difficult to conduct this test.  Normally, after a few minutes, the water droplet will begin to soak into the leather as mentioned. If in doubt, it may be advisable to contact the manufacturer to obtain information about the specific type of leather that you have.

Suede and Nubuck Leathers

Suede is sometimes used in furniture, but is not extremely common.  Suede is generally found used on very high end or expensive pieces and is identified by its' rough,"knapp" finish. This "knapp" is similar to that found on carpeting and can be determined by brushing your hand over the surface of the leather. When brushed in one direction, the leather will darken in color, when brushed back the other direction, it will lighten in color.  A definite "knapp" or "raw leather" look is visible on the surface.
NuBuck has "knapp" but is much shorter and more evenly spaced than suede.  At first appearance, it may be difficult to determine that it is NuBuck.  When new, NuBuck has a very flat, dull finish and when brushed with the hand, will have the same reaction as suede.  A test may be performed to determine this type of leather by placing a small droplet of water onto the surface of the leather. This droplet of water will immediately soak into the leather and create a dark spot, which will dry and disappear in a matter of minutes.
Note: Occasionally, a manufacturer or dealer will apply a repellant material to the surface of this leather to reduce the amount of soiling and staining that will naturally occur.  If this product has been applied, the water droplet will sit on the surface and "bead up" making it difficult to conduct this test.  Normally, after a few minutes, the water droplet will begin to soak into the leather as mentioned.
It may be advisable to contact the manufacturer to obtain information about the specific type of leather that you have.
