Leather floors

Leather tiles are used as leather flooring and wall claddings. Even luxurious boats are sometimes clad in leather tiles. Such surfaces are heat-insulating and sound-proof and feel warm and natural.

The leather used for floors is mostly thick and stiff vegetable-tanned leather, but also bonded leather. Using bonded leather as a floor covering is a sensible use of leather residues since the breathability of leather or tear resistance is not relevant for floors.

The maintenance of leather floors

For leather floors, robust leather is used which is easier to clean and maintain. For cleaning, the floor can be mopped (not too wet). As a cleansing agent, use leather cleaners that are recommended for such leather surfaces.

Leather fat, leather oil and leather milk can be used as leather care. Do not overdose! Re-polish after drying. Always test first to make sure that the floor does not become too slippery or sticky.
