GENERAL INFORMATION ON CLUB CHAIRS
1 / Manufacturing
- We take great care in manufacturing our seats.
- They are made entirely in France, from natural materials.
- The coverage of our club seats is made of sheepskin.
2 / What material sheepskin?
- This is a full grain leather sheepskin.
- Tanning is achieved by processing plant.
- The thickness of sheepskins is from 1.2 to 1.4 millimeters.
3 / The qualities of sheepskin
- The aesthetics of a lively and warm leather.
- The natural aging over the years.
- Exceptional longevity, if the sheepskin is properly maintained (50 years).
- Strengthening the patina over time.
- The qualities set out involve regular maintenance of sheepskin (See section 5 / Maintenance)
4 / What is a patina?
- The raw skins are laid.
- The color is entirely handmade.
- Our patina is the result of three successive operations: tinting, waxing, and polishing.
- The patina can bring out the natural defects of the sheepskin: scars, stains, blotches, wrinkles, tears, all testimony to the life of the animal. The traces are not in any way defective, but a sign of authenticity.
- Each patina is unique, each piece is unique. In the case of a seat manufacturing to complement an existing set, we strive to countertyped hue (a sample of your sheepskin can be requested).
5 / Recommended maintenance sheepskins
- Buff: You can polish your seat upon receipt (especially if traveling in hot weather, or if he has been a hot or cold storage in plastic bag).
- Moisturize: our sheepskins are natural materials (sheep skin); if you have not waxed your seat, moisten the entire surface with clean water. This hydration can be done with a sponge or spray and let dry completely. Follow with nourishing balm tinted, wait 4 hours to dry and then polish with a soft cloth to help wool).
- Feeding: Feed your sheepskin / your seat (s) in the waxing regularly with our nourishing balm (operation to be performed every 6 months).
- Fix: To remove scratches or spalling associated with normal use of the seat, you can apply paint (brush) our nourishing balm and then let dry and buff.
- Dust: dust off your seats using a soft cloth (wool).
- Vacuum: regularly remove dirt and debris.
- Aerate: The feather pillows should be a manual threshing regular (monthly). To do this, remove the cushion of her shell, beat the cushion, then replace the cover in his sheepskin.
- Smother: Do not seal in plastic bag under your seat. Please remember that sheepskin is a natural material, which just like your skin to breathe and need to be moisturized. If you must protect your / your seat (s), the use of blankets will be recommended.
- No chemicals: Do not use chemicals to maintain or remove your sheepskins, if necessary prefer clear water.
- Do not rub: Do not rub with an unnecessarily abrasive support the seat. We recommend a soft cotton or wool.
- No UV: Do not expose the seat to sunlight, the risk to see him fade quickly.
- Beware of heat sources: Avoid locations near radiators, fireplaces, stoves, or other heat source. If you find that your seat was submitted to high temperatures, be sure to shine after cooling. Indeed, the patina of wax will have to soften, and polishing will prevent you try using the seat.
