Brenta is a natural leather elevated to a level that is nothing like anything we have seen. It is currently only available in a gorgeous “Walnut” color, but we expect more colors to emerge down the road in 2021, including a “Cider” color.
Brenta is the latest masterpiece by the fifth-generation Adelaide Tannery in Bassano del Grappa, in northern Italy. Adelaide Tannery is in the foothills of the alps, this tannery produces the finest upholstery leathers in the world, tanned with waters from the Italian Alps, displaying the true natural beauty of leather.
Brenta is produced on high-quality German hides. Layers of waxes and oils are applied to create a rich pull-up effect and then an extensive milling process is used to produce Brenta’s signature soft hand and raised grain.
Like with any aniline leather, one should expect significant variation in color from hide to hide, and even within a hide, including scars, bug bites, and dye lot variation. The natural finish will reveal the character of the underlying animal including fat lines and healed scars.
While Brenta has a soft, supple hand, it is still cowhide so it is inherently durable. It will provide many, many years of comfort and beauty. Brenta will burnish and mark with use. A dog’s nails, even a fingernail, can leave a mark in the surface. These marks are not scratches, as they are only in the finish and can generally be rubbed out with the warmth of your finger, or heat from a hairdryer on a hot setting. Brenta is best used by customers who can embrace the patina that develops in the leather over time, and appreciate the natural character of the leather.
Brenta is a versatile leather that is well suited for contemporary or traditional pieces, and it is an outstanding selection for tufted pieces as its suppleness allows our upholsterers to create a great result.
