Aged Leather Benchstool

Leather is a natural product and the uniqueness of each hide is identified by growth lines, scars and other natural marks. It originally came from the skin of an animal and it’s important to bear this in mind. This naturalness gives the leather its beauty and unique character that distinguishes it from synthetic alternatives. Aged leather will obtain marks and some creases, yet these add to the leather’s unique characteristics and should not be regarded as defects and should not affect the long-term performance of your footstool. The leather ages over time, further enhancing its appearance.

Leather production is the second oldest industry known to man and the original method of tanning using vegetable extracts to make leather for warriors’ equipment (e.g. belts and saddles etc). This type of leather would typically last longer and remain more supple if it was fed. However, modern leather most frequently uses metal salts as a tanning compound and the lubricants used in the production process are much more advanced and refined than the products of yesteryear.

Leather is relatively easy and straightforward to clean and care for. 


Wipe away stains with a soft damp cloth as soon as they occur but take care not to scrub the surface
Dust with a soft cloth and vacuum frequently to ensure that small particles of dirt don’t gather and abrade the leather
Cleaners and conditioners are available to help maintain this aged leather type and we recommend that you use these from new. To buy these products we recommend our partners Buffalo Leather and Repair (01772 611449 or www.buffaloleather.co.uk)
Simple stains can be cleaned using a specialist leather cleaning wipe. For longer-lasting and hard-to-remove stains, always refer to a stain industry professional.

Lovely footstool received promptly. My young granddaughter has claimed it as her seat so I won't get to rest my feet when she visits?

Ordered some legs for a sofa. Good value and quality. Dimensions slightly different from those advertised but we were ok with this as match with existing legs was good

Love it ... great design, great quality, great service. The fact that one can have samples before ordering is really useful ... I chose lime green (which I would never have chosen without having had a sample before).

Amazing service from Footstools Direct. I first ordered some free leather swatches which arrived within 7 days. I then ordered a beautiful dark brown leather stool at a very reasonable price, which I am delighted with. It is a real quality, well made item, which arrived within 2 weeks with the free delivery option. I cannot recommend the company nor the product more highly.

We honestly could not be happier with our new footstools. We looked at several online suppliers and this was the only company who offered plenty of choice and reasonable prices. The ordering process was easy and the delvery was quick. I highly recommend this company.
