Pigmented leather is easy to clean and requires minimal up keeping. Leather is denser than normal upholstery fabrics, and therefore, household dirt, dust or smoke is not as easy to penetrate as in the case of fabrics. Leather breathes by absorbing and releasing humidity from the atmosphere, and therefore, users do not sweat on leather as much as we might on vinyl (artificial leather). Normal household spills, if wiped up quick enough, will usually not stain leather. It’s because leather has much less pores comparing with other upholstery materials, such as fabrics.
