Ducale (DL)

Ducale is a select, embossed and shrunken full grain upholstery leather. The special combination vegetable retannage provides the leather with the additional body and fiber tightness required to hold firm the shrunken grain texture of this unique leather. The high quality dyes allow a greater saturation and dye enrichment than ordinary upholstery leathers. Ducale features a breathable protective finish which is impregnated into the leather, becoming an integral part of the material, and protects the surface while keeping the user cool.
