We are pleased to announce that our leather upholstery suppliers have been removed from the list of suppliers on the Russell Jones & Walker solicitors website, which was linked to from the BBC’s One Show website last week. This should act as further reassurance to our customers that our leather sofas have no connection with those found to cause skin irritations. We confirm our suppliers do not use DMF (dimethyl fumarate), and that any use of Chromium VI or NPEO falls within the limits set by British Standards.
Our suppliers are massive suppliers to the industry in this country and that they undertake testing to ensure that their leathers meet current British Standards. Some chemicals are used in the tanning process. We have received verbal reassurances from all suppliers named, so can reassure our customers that all of the goods supplied by our suppliers meet British Standards.
