Alder and Tweed uses both split-grain and top-grain leathers. Each type of genuine leather is a great choice. However, they are used for different types of furniture, different design looks and different price points.
The top-grain is the hair side of the leather. It is smooth, shiny and soft to the touch, so it is most often used in high-end leather furniture. Most of our Alder and Tweed chairs and sofas are top-grain leather.
The split-grain leather is tougher and thicker as it is from the flesh side. Its suede look is expertly stained, sealed, and finished to give it the look and feel of top-grain leather. Still, split-grain tends to appear in furniture at a slightly lower price point than top-grain.
Whichever you choose in Alder and Tweed furniture, the leathers come in a several attractive colors that will blend into any interior design color scheme.
