What you need to know about furniture

Upholstered furniture is often purchased for reasons of appearance. As well as design, seating comfort and modern comfort functions are important decision factors. Regardless of material, construction and manufacturing, there are important product characteristics to take into consideration because later changes due to normal, natural usage do not represent a material defect.

After all, you look after your skin, don’t you?

Leather needs our help if it is to keep its natural attractiveness, its wonderfully soft feel and its natural characteristics in the long term. We can help by regularly cleaning leather and then treating it with essential moisturising and care products. Leather can no longer regenerate itself and depends on effective care from the outside. Without our care, daily use can cause leather to lose its beauty, become dirty, dry out or lose its colour intensity.

Useful tips and basic for cleaning a leather

1. First clean, then care. Cleaning products can only be absorbed by leather if the pores have first been cleaned and are free from dirt particles.
2. Work from seam to seam over large areas.
3. Always apply cleaning and care products with a sponge or cloth.
4. Do not use solvent.
5. Clean and treat upholstered furniture regularly (at least every 6 months).
6. Don’t use microfibre towels but soft and lint-free biological towels.
7. Avoid unsightly, chalky tide marks by using distilled water for cleaning.
8. Deal with stains immediately by dabbing them off carefully, always working from the outside in.
9. After cleaning, allow the cover to dry thoroughly and only then apply cleaning products.

That is why you will receive the KERALUX® leather care set N with a delicate cleanser for gentle, yet thorough cleansing of fresh, watersoluble stains and a care lotion for vintage-effect leather, for essential moisturising and rejuvenation, preserving the feel and renewing the light wax layer.

The fabrics flar und ambiance

flair – of viscose linen thread.
With a special high-grade gloss and a pleasant soft touch. Skin pleasant and breahable.

ambiance – flat fibres with, undreamed of colours and patterns.
Excellent seat climate and pleasent dry touch. For cushions only.

Refined lustre, breathtakingly beautiful, natural colours and a soft and pleasant feel. Quite simply, natural fabrics made from a mixed viscoselinen yarn from Rohleder radiate a special kind of appeal. These particularly sophisticated fabrics convey high-quality, create a homely atmosphere and are the quintessence of textile culture.

Outstanding products still need special attention, though. Like any other object that is used every day, the material has characteristics that are typical of this kind of product and that make it what it is. This means that your linen furniture upholstery will develop a sophisticated, individual and unique lustre during its life with you. Depending on the fabric, use may also result in a slight roughening and will speak volumes about your life together.

Using the best technological know-how, Rohleder has managed to make this natural product into something that is suitable for everyday use, optimising all test values for pilling, friction-resistance and light-fastness, as well as abrasion resistance. The natural fabrics come into their own, for example, because of their extreme breathability – the covers can breathe, creating a comfortable seating climate.
