Cortina Leathers Introduces Allora: Allora...Beauty is no accident.
A New Virginia Langley Collection
Allora is the design story of modern Italy and its creative energy. The romance occurs when the natural beauty of
quality Italian leather is combined with an innovative approach to color and performance, offering designers a
contemporary, daring and versatile choice for interiors, suitable everywhere.
Inspired by Tuscany, protected by Crypton®
Allora’s stunning hues were created in collaboration with noted designer Virginia Langley, who was inspired by
the unique sun-touched colors of Tuscany. She shares, “When you arrive in Tuscany, it’s as if you have put on a
pair of invisible sunglasses that allow you to see color through a new lens. There is a certain glow, an ambiance
in the drama of the sunlight from dusk till dawn and dusk again, that differs from all other regions of Italy.” With
Virginia’s hand-painted swatches of variegated colors, she was able to recreate the depth and glow of Tuscany.
Cortina’s leather experts worked extensively with Italian artisans and Crypton’s engineers to bring this color
inspiration to life with the new Allora collection, a cleanable leather of uncompromising beauty and performance.
Embracing the natural characteristics of leather, Allora’s aniline finish (no pigments) presents with a smooth
texture and pleasing hand, along with a complex variation and clarity of color that you can see into. In Allora,
Cortina has realized its vision of an aniline leather that retains its clean lines and sophisticated look over time.
Where beauty meets performance.
Protected by our powerful Crypton top coat, Allora is stain, abrasion and wear resistant, unique to aniline leathers
of this quality. The ability to sterilize and remove stains with many CDC-approved cleaners makes Allora a
sustainable, high-performance leather ready for hotel rooms, lobbies, restaurants, bars, and offices, as well as
residential kitchens, dining rooms, and all the places where we live.
Jack Prause, President of Cortina Leathers, says, “In many ways, Allora represents the pinnacle of our 120-year
journey to bring together the best aspects of U.S. manufacturing capabilities with Italian romance. With Allora,
we successfully apply our expertise in performance to an Italian-crafted leather of enduring elegance.”
