Madras Contract is a semi aniline supple cowhide leather. The tannage uses selected raw materials to attain a very soft hand and drape, so that when upholstered the pebbled grain gives the appearance of a natural looking leather. Madras Contract is excellent for applications in the automotive aftermarket, contract, hospitality, and residential markets, due to its high performance finish. This leather has been finished in a manner to give it an excellent color consistency combined with lasting durability.
