Definitions for "Protected Aniline"
Keywords:  aniline, dyed, pigments, stain, topcoat
Aniline dyed leather which has been pigmented to ensure color consistency and stain resistance.
Leather, which has been aniline dyed and then slightly pigmented to ensure color consistency while still showing the natural characteristics of the hide.
Protected aniline leather is less expensive and more common than pure aniline or semi- aniline leather. Its coloration is more consistent and because it has been coated with protected pigments, the leather’s natural markings are less noticeable. These protected leathers are more heavily pigmented than semi- aniline leather and are actually easier to clean that pure aniline leather because surface pigments repel water and stains… standing up well to heavy use.
