LEATHER CARE

Leather is a natural material. It does not wither with age. Time ages leather to make it more beautiful with each passing day. Each day, leather attains a different feature which makes it one of a kind. Each piece of leather is unique and hence demands your love and care.

If leather gets too wet: Dry it slowly. Speed drying leather changes its chemical structure, and you end up with stiff crinkles. So room temperature with gentle air works better than direct heating with hair-dryer.

If leather gets too dry: Rub something moist into it. Pick a leather dressing or cream, preferably recommended for leather. We specifically recommend Dubbin for heavier use applications or a lighter leather cream for wallets.

If leather gets dirty: Just use a damp cloth. You don’t want to be putting any soaps or chemical detergents in there.

Don’t wrap it in plastic. Your leather needs to breathe in order to avoid any mildew growth, so keep some ventilation going.
