Cortina Leather – Athene

As much as any leather, Athene embodies Italian design and color acumen. A fine aniline leather with exceptional color depth, Athene features a smooth glossy finish that is distinguished by its unique micro-crackle distress which is both stylish and inviting. When stretched the leather subtly lightens to display multiple hues and the natural characteristics which mark truly authentic leathers. Italian designers continually add fresh, bright colors to this impressive color line. Finished with a protective topcoat, Athene is a versatile choice for a broad variety of applications.

Environmental Stewardship: Athene is produced in a tannery which has achieved a gold rating as audited to the Leather Working Group environmental stewardship and traceability standards. Further enhancing its sustainability profile, Athene is finished without the use of solvents or lead, emits low VOCs and has achieved an Indoor Gold Advantage certificate from SCS.

Athene can be finished with a Crypton protective topcoat for an additional charge.
