Maintain your favorite leather pieces regularly to ensure soft and supple leather. Leather can be cleaned and restored with leather care products designed to clean, condition and protect.


Leather Care can help maintain your product longer. We recommend conditioning your leather at a minimum of every 3 months. If you are in a dryer (hot or cold) climate please condition your product as soon as it feels less supple, dull or faded.

Vegetable tanned leather when conditioned should feel slightly oiled and look rich. Similar to the nature of skin it needs to be moisturized as soon as it feels dry.

Note: We recommend performing a test in a hidden place to ensure the detergent will not alter the color of the fabric.
