When you want to keep it natural
The beauty of aniline leather is the warm touch, authentic leather-look and appealing, luminous colours. But when it fades, it can look drab, grey and uncared for. Aniline Dye Stain (No.29) can help to refresh the bleached colour without sacrificing the natural look.
Use alone or with clear or sheer coatings
- Use alone
- Use under Topcoat (No.7) which seals the stain to prevent dye transfer onto clothing/skin and provides a protective finish
- Use under Colour Restoration Cream (No.32) which lightly covers stains and lends a protective finish

Unlike leather pigments (paints/coatings) that coat the surface with a coloured finish, aniline dye stains penetrate and stain with transparent colour.
Although painted leathers are the most commonly used type, aniline dyed leathers remain very popular. The look is classic, natural, earthy and authentic whilst the feel is warm and inviting.
Most modern anilines are acturally semi-anilines. They are dyed and lightly coated with leather paint and topcoat for protection.
When to use dye stains
If you have aniline, semi-aniline, waxed, or oil pull-up leather and it has UV fading, Aniline Dye Stain can be used to balance the fading and boost the overall colour intensity.
If it is marked and stained and you'd like to blend those stains so that they are less eye catching, using Aniline Dye Stain in a similar or slightly darker colour can be the answer.
