Over time, the surface colour of leather and the leather itself change due to ageing and to the action of the surroundings on the leather. The purpose of the various ageing procedures described in ISO 17228:2005 is to obtain an indication of the changes that could occur when leather is exposed to a certain environment for a prolonged time. The test conditions to be used depend on the type of leather and its intended use.
