Auburn Quality

We control and test our leather from raw material throughout the tanning process to ensure the highest standards are consistently met. Our dedicated quality assurance team thoroughly tests every lot of leather for tensile strength, thickness consistency, and color accuracy.

Leather color is measured against established shade variance standards and tested for performance-based criteria such as crocking and colorfastness to water using ASTM & SATRA-approved testing equipment and follows ASTM and SATRA test procedures. We utilize 3rd-party independent labs to test our leather for Restrictive Substances (RS) to ensure full compliance year in, year out.
