Bernhardt leather - where is it from?

kellyredheadMarch 2, 2009

We are looking at the leather sofa and chair from Bernhardt, collection is "Foster".

I have read where some leather is from China, I was not aware of this. How do I find out where the leather is from.

Also read about "Married Cover" leather not sure what that is either if someone could explain?

I just don't want the dye to be toxic to my children like toys are from there.

I have a Bernhardt Leather Coffee Table/Ottoman and it definitely is stamped 'Made in China' as are most Bernhardt pieces.
