Ekornes® upholstery leather
Ekornes is one of Europe’s largest consumers of leather. We purchase the
leather from selected tanneries all over the world. Our own inspectors take part
in the leather selection, which is conducted in accordance with international
norms for quality determination. The experience we have gained from this work is
for your benefit when you buy Stressless® or Ekornes® leather furniture.
Our leather is manufactured according to current laws, guidelines and
recommendations relating to their utilisation properties, and for the use and
content of chemicals and other substances. We are cooperating with recognised
international institutions in this line of business to ensure that we are
updated at all times with events relating to health, safety and the environment.
You can choose between these types of leather for Stressless® or Ekornes®
batick is a corrected, pigment improved and grain embossed upholstery leather
, which has had most of its natural marks removed. Batick may have a two-tone
colour effect to liven up the surface. Batick is resistant to fading, although
changes in colour will occur over time due to use and exposure to light. A
protective layer of lacquer simplifies cleaning. Simple cleaning, excellent
utilisation properties and a favourable price make Batick a good choice.
CLASSIC is a corrected, pigment improved and grain embossed upholstery
leather (see photograph 2). Classic is somewhat thicker and has a larger pebbled
grain than Batick. Most of its natural marks are removed. Also some of the
Classic colours have a two-tone colour effect to liven up the surface. A
protective layer of lacquer simplifies cleaning. Classic is a wise choice if you
want leather with excellent utilisation properties and a robust structure.
PALOMA is a slightly corrected leather (see photograph 3) with a combination
of dyes and pigments that smoothes down some of the structure (the grain
pattern) of the leather. The grain structure in Paloma may however vary a little
at some parts of the furniture and also minor colour nuances may appear in the
leather. Natural marks, scars and insect bites are natural and will appear in
Paloma. A thin coat of lacquer gives Paloma some protection and simplifies
cleaning, but Paloma does not have the same heavy duty quality and protection as
Batick and Classic. Due to its soft, natural and comfortable expression, Paloma
is a very popular choice.
ROYALIN is the most exclusive of Ekornes’s leather types, but also the most
vulnerable. Royalin is a type of leather with natural pebbled grain and
structure, and may have minor colour nuances and some natural marks. This is
characteristic for a natural material such as Royalin (see photograph 4). A very
light surface treatment provides a certain protection, but Royalin absorbs
moisture easily, and is extra vulnerable to wear and tear, heat, sunlight,
spills and perspiration. This requires greater care in use and more
vulnerability to influence from direct contact with human skin (especially from
neck/hair and hands). Royalin has the softness and a rich warm glow that
characterise first classfurniture leather. Variances including grain pattern and
colour are an inherent feature within Royalin leather and are a natural mark of
Important information if you are buying leather furniture: As leather is a
natural product, colour nuances are normal and colours might vary slightly from
one product to another. The leather is sensitive to direct sunlight, stains and
perspiration, and colour change will occur with time due to use and the effect
of light. Marks left by scars and insect bites are a natural feature of leather
with natural grain. Remember that furniture should be protected from direct
sunlight and heating sources.
