Leather Care

Our leather is extremely soft, supple, durable, and resistant.
With a proper care it will develop a unique and desirable patina.

 

Let it breathe

Just like skin, leather needs some ventilation to prevent mildew and rot. Air can naturally pass through leather, leaving moisture to evaporate naturally. Don’t seal your product to a plastic bag but use the storage/travel bag the item came with, or some type of breathable fabric.

 

Keep it away from direct sunlight

Leather ages beautifully and each product takes on its own patina. All leathers fade naturally over time, but direct sunlight speeds up this process. Storage your leather goods into a closet or cabinet to prevent the unwanted fading.

 

Dry it slowly

If the leather gets wet, let it dry naturally – even if it takes a couple days. If you use a dryer or heater, the leather might dry out too quickly and shrink.

 

Cleaning Tips

You do not need any special products to keep the leather looking good – just dip a clean cloth in a simple soap and water solution and gently clean the surface. You can use a colorless care product to fresh up the leather if needed.

 

Spots and Spills

Wipe excess liquid immediately with a clean cloth or sponge; let the leather air dry. If further cleaning is necessary, sponge surface with lukewarm water.

 

Stubborn Spots and Stains

Apply a mild, nonabrasive soap solution with a clean, wet sponge. Rinse well and dry slowly in room temperature.

 

Butter, Oil, or Grease

Wipe the leather with a clean, dry cloth and let the remainder of the oil dissipate into the leather. Don’t use water.
