- What kind of leather does American Leather use?
American Leather has one of the largest leather collections in North America.
Our leather is chosen from the top 10% of hides in the world. We regularly scout the world for the most impressive hides and we partner with talented tanneries when highly skilled leather artisans prepare the leather for our manufacturing process.
- What is American Leather’s process for making furniture?
Each piece starts off as a drawing by our award-winning design team, which is rendered on computer before it is perfected by an engineer for integrity and accuracy. The virtual model is then delivered to the manufacturing facility to begin physical production. Each part is cut by a computerized CNC router, which can make various sizes and shapes with precision and consistency.
Our system allows technicians to map out and place pattern outlines on the appropriate part of the hide, which ensures minimal waste with the most consistent color and quality.

- What kind of leather does American Leather offer?
American Leather offers 3 kinds of leathers based on protection and durability from daily life.
Light Protection:Soft and supple leather. Requires moderate attention to maintain beauty
Medium Leather:Not as soft of Light Protection, does not require as much attention. There’s more protection for all the things that life throws your way
Heavy Protection:Offers the most protection. The heavily pigmented finish coat serves as a barrier to spills, stains and fading.
- What is the Light Protection Leather?
The softest and most supple of our leathers, these exceptionally natural, full top-grain, full-aniline hides often have “character marks” on the surface, giving each its own unique look and feel. The natural scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and subtle shading variations are part of each hide’s inherent beauty. They age beautifully and develop a soft patina over time. And like many of the finer things in life, these light protection leathers require moderate attention to maintain their beauty over time.
- What is the Medium Protection Leather?
It's not too little. It’s not too much. It’s just right for easy living. These leather hides are among the best in the world, but because of their surface coat, there’s just a little more protection for all the things life throws your way.
- What is the Heavy Protection Leather?
These leathers are exceptionally versatile and offer the most protection from life’s everyday mishaps. Excellent for families with children and pets, the heavily pigmented finish coat serves as a barrier to protect from spills, stains, and fading. We feature different options in this category, depending on your lifestyle needs and décor preferences.

- How should I clean my leather sofa?
First, review the care label of your furniture.
Under normal usage and conditions, regular dry-cloth dusting and vacuum cleaning in crevices and along the bottom are all that is necessary to clean your furniture.
DO NOT USE:saddle soap, cleaning solvents, furniture polish, oils, varnish, abrasive cleaners, detergent soaps or ammonia water.
Always try any cleaning method in a hidden area first to verify the results. For minor or slight scratches on the surface, use a soft cloth or clean fingers to gently buff the scratch. If needed, moisten lightly with distilled water to work scratches out.
The manufacturer is not responsible for damage incurred while cleaning.
- How do I clean minor spots and spills?
Wipe any excess liquid up immediately with a clean absorbent cloth or sponge. If necessary, use a lightly moistened soft cloth with distilled water and let air dry naturally. Do not dry with hair dryers, etc. Do not use soap or soak the stain heavily with water. This may cause more damage than the stain itself. If the stain persists, we recommend that a professional leather specialist clean the leather to avoid any potential damage to the leather.
- How do I clean tough/stubborn spots?
Moisten a soft cloth or sponge with a mild non-detergent soap and lukewarm water. Apply gently to all soiled portions of the leather surface. Remove soap lather by wiping with a clean damp cloth. Blot dry with another soft cloth, and then let air dry naturally. Do not use hair dryers, etc. If the stain persists, it is recommended that the leather be cleaned by a professional leather specialist to avoid any potential damage.
- How do I clean butter/oil/grease stains?
Blot excess butter, oil or grease off the leather with a clean dry cloth, then leave it alone. The spot should dissipate into the leather after a short period of time. Do not apply water or try to wash a butter, oil or grease spot. We also recommend the use of Leather Degreaser by Uniters.com to remove butter, oil or grease stains.
