Baranil, Suportlo & Zermatt - Degermann S.A

A close cousin to Novonappa (Haas), this leather has a slightly smoother surface compared to the latter. It has mild scratch and water resistance and deepens its original colour as it patinas.
Suportlo is a fattier version of the Baranil with a slightly firmer surface and temper.
