Semi-Aniline is a natural looking premium quality leather with some of the unique surface characteristics of the animal hide remaining visible. This type of leather may contain a small amount of pigment in the surface coating. This will give some degree of extra protection but some shade variation should be expected.
The pigment layer is very thin and the pores and creases of the hide show through but because it sits on top of the leather, brighter, more intense color can be achieved. The clear layer on top, also called varnish or lacquer can have a different degree of shine and is acrylic-based to remain flexible and move with the leather. This final layer is most important. It determines the long term appearance of semi-aniline leather.
