Katzkin Premium Automotive Leather is a top-grain aniline dyed leather, produced in Brazil from hand selected hides of local origin. Our industry leading Premium Leather receives a special retannage which enriches the leather and tightens the grain structure. A correction process then refines the surface of the leather, preparing the material for grain enhancement during the finishing process.
Katzkin Premium Leather features a durable protective finish that is impregnated into the leather, becoming an integral part of the material. This unique recipe for tanning and finishing results in a superior hand and a smooth surface touch. Katzkin Premium leather has been tested extensively to confirm that it meets or exceeds industry specifications for use in automotive interiors.
Katzkin Tuscany Leather is an elegant, fine-grained, automotive leather made from the clearest of Brazilian hides. This exclusive leather has been fully enriched and lightly corrected to produce a hand which is superior to other automotive leathers. The vegetable combination retannage creates the luxurious, tight grain texture and roundness of hand. This clear leather reveals its natural characteristics while retaining the high performance necessary to meet strict automotive performance specifications. Resulting from decades of experience in the leather industry, Tuscany is our finest leather.
Katzkin Barracuda is a unique preparation of our Premium Leather, providing a striking visual effect. In production, the leather is aniline dyed, with rich colorful dyes that fully penetrate the leather. Barracuda is then finished with a solid (usually Black in color) protective finish. Finally, the leather is perforated with a square shaped perf design, revealing the rich contrasting dye color around the edges of the perforated squares. Barracuda adds an element of drama and sophistication to any application.
