Defects that appear in the finished leather are the result of damage to the raw skin, poor storage or improper processing during manufacturing.

  • Dye transfer from leather is the result of insufficient colour fixation. For example, it can be caused by excessively concentrated dyes or insufficient washing after the dyeing stage. If the colour concentration is too high, bronzing can also occur.
  • Colour defects can occur if the applied colouration does not cover uniformly, especially on already damaged areas.
  • Looseness is caused by missing leather fibre substance under the grain surface. The surface then tends to form small wrinkles. This is a skin defect of the living animal. Such skins should not even find their way into the leather production.
