Pigmented leather is built to withstand. Drum-dyed like aniline and semi-aniline leather, you would not be able to tell for pigmented leather’s vibrant finish. This leather has maximum protection from the elements, and requires starkly less maintenance and care when treating. This leather is made when leather is given a complete plastic coating over its surface, just permeable enough to allow the leather to breathe, but significantly slowing the absorption of any other substance, be it rain, a spilled drink, or even leather conditioner. Usually developed from leather deemed too disfigured to sell as is, you will usually find this leather sanded down to top grain and embossed to create a consistent texture. The downside to this leather is that it has abandoned many of its natural qualities, and – while it does not scratch as easily – scratches that stick are harder to get out. This finished leather is used almost ubiquitously for car leather, and is very common for furniture and upholstery. Makes sense, given the beating these types of leathers tend to put up with. If you’ve got leather that needs to survive some rough play, at the cost of natural quality and a somewhat smaller lifespan, this leather’s for you. Pigmented leather’s pretty easy to identify:

1.Very smooth, almost plastic texture. Will not lighten in color under pressure.
2.Will not possess many natural qualities; may smell like plastic. Uniform surface with artificial or consistent patterning. No visible grains or pores.
3.Fluids will absorb much more slowly, may bead at the surface for a short time. Scratches cannot rub out. Less breathable.
4.Less flexible and supple than other leathers, having a stiffer substance owing to the plastic layering. Will not wrinkle when furled.
5.Colors uniform and opaque, or artificial. This leather will not patina, but will strongly resist fading under UV exposure. Shines brightly under light.
Leather may also be finished in other, less-conventional-more-stylistic ways, such as with a metallic finish, a patent finish, or by embossing. Metallic leather can usually be treated conventionally, but if you are looking to treat patent leather, I’d recommend reaching out to the manufacturer for more specific care instructions; patent’s finish tends to be almost completely impermeable, making standard leather conditioners ineffective for this leather. Embossed leather is imprinted with tactile patterns, and is common for imitation exotic leathers. Embossed leather can usually be treated and conditioned like any other leather.
