About our Leathers
We select only the highest quality top grain hides
available, and use an aniline finish to enhance the
natural characteristics in the hide. Aniline finishing
allows you to see and feel the essential qualities
of genuine leather, which cannot be duplicated synthetically.
Many products claiming to be genuine leather are actually
highly chemically corrected; painted leathers which
create an artificially 'perfect' finish. This finish
is merely a top layer and will eventually wear away.
J.P. Ourse leathers are drum dyed, ensuring that the
color is deeply saturated throughout the hide, and
will not rub off or fade.
Unlike lower quality leather goods, J.P.Ourse products
become more soft and supple over time and will develop
a rich patina, giving them true character. Because
of this natural process of the leather we do not recommend
the use of any cleaners or lotions.
Care and Cleaning
The best way to clean our leather products is by
lightly rubbing the leather with a damp rag. Please
do not use any detergents, oils or leather lotions,
which may result in staining.
