ELMOSOFT is a soft and pliable Semi-Aniline leather. Outstanding comfort combined with excellent durability and an extensive shade card, makes it very suitable for the public environment. Compare it with the somewhat sturdier, Elmonordic. Visible insect-bites and scars from healed wounds add to the elegant quality of the leather.



Raw material:
Grain leather from Scandinavian cattle. All Elmo leather is dyed through and testad at Elmo's laboratory. A hide is selected at random from every batch of finished leather and checked in accordance with the following:
