Conneaut Leather introduces two collections for the design community

New Chesapeake & Florence leathers feature Crypton protection

Press Release, September 13, 2016

CONNEAUT, Ohio, September 2016 — Conneaut Leather continues its leadership in beautiful, versatile leathers with the introduction of the Florence line of timeless aniline leathers and the subtly elegant Chesapeake collection.

The Florence collection is a lightly distressed, beautiful aniline leather with a luxurious hand offered in 10 natural colors. Setting Florence apart from all other aniline leathers is its Crypton protection which allows this beauty to be confidently specified for use in applications where traffic and the potential for staining normally prohibit the use of aniline leathers.

Stocked in 19 fashion-forward colors, Chesapeake catches the light as well as the eye with the warm glow and soft shimmer of its pearlized finish. Chesapeake’s buttery, soft hand stands up to high-traffic because of the cleanable, durable protection of Crypton.

Embedding Crypton protection in leather finishing is a Conneaut Leather exclusive. The stain and water resistant, bleach-cleanable, antimicrobial features of Crypton integrate within the finish treatment. The protection will not diminish from frequent cleaning and heavy use over the leather’s life cycle.

Chesapeake and Florence leathers are low-VOC emitting, lead-free, and solvent-free.

“Conneaut Leather has always stood for the finest American-made leathers, unmatched custom-capability and tremendous customer service,” said Jack Prause, President, Conneaut Leather. “The launch of these two beautiful new leathers continues that tradition with designer-focused leather qualities at a reasonable price and the performance of Crypton; something only Conneaut Leather can offer.”
