Carnival is a full grain, full aniline leather. As such it is dyed through, and then given a light toning with aniline dye–just enough to make it resistant to dirt. No colour pigments are used. This totally natural finish displays all the characteristics of real leather. Aniline leather breathes; it is warm to the touch in the winter and cool in the summer. It has a very soft tactile finish, and being totally natural it ages beautifully, and develops an entirely unique look for each piece of upholstered furniture. Frequent use of aniline leather will develop its patina and bring years of satisfaction. Being completely natural, its colour and surface texture will vary from hide to hide.
