Acqua (AU)

Italian for water, Acqua is a durable, water-resistant leather suitable for a wide range of applications. Produced from hides originating in northern Italy, southern Germany, and Switzerland, a combination of a special retannage and finishing process results in leather that is not only water resistant, but also practical for applications that require a durable finish. High quality dyes used for Acqua allow a greater saturation and dye enrichment than ordinary upholstery leathers.
