The tanning process that animal hides undergo causes leather to be highly resistant to water, abrasion and debris. But leather still requires cleaning, hydration and protection – much like your own skin. How regularly you clean and apply care products to leather depends on your climate, lifestyle and frequency of use.
When caring for leather, begin with a horsehair brush to remove dirt buildup from the application area. Wipe with a dampened cloth to clean off any remaining debris. Using your hand or a designated cloth, spread an even layer of all-natural leather oil or wax onto the leather’s surface. Allow the leather to dry for several hours – preferably in a warm area, which will aid the pores in retaining the oils. When dry, buff with an alternate horsehair brush to maintain the leather’s sheen and remove any excess wax. Oils and waxes will inevitably darken leather that is lighter in color: but in our view, this contributes to a beautiful and unique patina.
