Definition of Pearlized Leather

Pearlized leather is a natural aniline leather with an amazingly soft look and feel.

To achieve a pearl look, a liquid metallic top coat is sprayed over the leather’s surface to give it a subtle sheen appearance.

Pearlized leather’s uniqueness lies in its strength and softness while still maintaining an attractive leather patina.

The metallic coating also makes the leather more durable and increases its resistance to water, dirt, and dust.
