Testing

From every batch of leather, samples are taken and tested in our on-site laboratory to ensure quality and consistency.

All of our tests are carried out in accordance with British Standards.

Test 1: Flex Test
Leather is tested up to 50,000 flexes to determine the resistance of the finish to cracking and the adhesion of the finish to the leather.

Test 2: Rub Test
Leather is tested up to 500 dry rubs and 250 wet rubs to detect any colour staining or change in colour as well as any visible changes or damage to the surface of the leather.

Test 3: Abrasive Test
Leather is tested up to 1000 cycles for wear performance and any change of colour.

As well as these tests checks are also carried out for continuation of colour between batches and the softness of the leather.
