Leather with bad rub fastness – Case #089

May 20, 2013


“A picture is worth a thousand words”. Practical solutions to problems encountered in the manufacturing process that demonstrate how we assist our customers’ factories to produce Right from the Start TM.

Problem: a lot of 1,500 sqft of black goat nubuck failed the wet and dry rub fastness test.


Impactiva rejected the lot and asked the tannery to remake the order. If this leather had reached the footwear factory and it was cut into production, the shoes would have stained the feet and/or clothes of the user.
