What's the Difference Between Classic Storehouse Flats and Oil Tanned?
Today, we're going to answer the number one question we're asked.
"What's the difference between the Classic and Oil Tanned Storehouse Flats finishes?"
Technically, iIt's a difference in treatment on the leather. One creates a clean smooth surface and the oil tanned creates a more worn-in look and a softer feel.
The easiest way to compare it is like finishing your concrete floors. You can either paint them or stain them.
When you paint it you can't see anything through the color. It covers any imperfections, giving you a clean, crisp finish. This is comparable to the Classic finish.
You could also choose to stain your concrete floors. The stain is translucent/opaque and shows off the beauty and flaws of the concrete underneath. This is comparable to the Oil Tanned finish. They look more natural and worn with a slight shine. This is because they are tanned with oil to keep them beautiful!
