Then there are the sturdy, yet thoroughly practical leather upholstered dining chairs; a quick wipe clean with a damp cloth and they are clean once again.
A sturdy material too
Leather is incredible strong. It is of the high quality, effectively a hide, a skin from an animal that will minimal processing, can be incredibly strong. In a way, it is also the perfect example of recycling and making best use of material too, for leather is a by-product of the beef industry.

- Feeding and nourishing the leather- over time, the leather can dry out, leaving it cracked and brittle; this can cause holes and tears to easily appear and thus, many leather upholstered items need to be 'fed and nourished' with various conditioning treatments
- Scuffs- leather can be scuffed, just like human skin can be scratched or scraped; these can tear through the top layer of the leather fabric, and cause a lighter scuffed patch to appear
- Tears- leather can tear or be ripped with anything from pet claws, to sharp object like keys; many people assume that once the leather is torn, it cannot be repaired (but it can!)
- Holes- holes tend to be worn in to leather when there are patches of thinning material, or on patches or areas commonly used, such as the sating section of a sofa or chair; friction between the leather and other materials can make for perfect conditions for holes to appear
