General Care for All Leather Goods


1. Keep Your Leather Clean: Regularly dust your leather item with a soft cloth. For a deeper clean, use a cleaner specifically designed for high-quality leather. Apply a small amount of cleaner to a soft cloth and gently wipe the surface in a circular motion.

2. Condition Your Leather: Conditioning your leather goods prevents drying and cracking, ensuring they remain soft and supple. Use a high-quality leather conditioner every 3-6 months.

3. Protect from Exposure: Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, which can fade and damage the leather. Keep your leather goods away from excessive heat and humidity.

4. Storage: Store your leather products in a breathable dust bag when not in use. Avoid plastic bags, as they prevent air circulation and can cause the leather to dry out.


Special Care for Exotic Leathers

Exotic leathers, such as snake, ostrich, and crocodile, require special attention due to their unique textures and patterns.


1. Gentle Cleaning: Use a soft, dry cloth to remove any dust or dirt. For stubborn stains, lightly dampen the cloth with distilled water.

2. Avoid Chemicals: Never use chemical cleaners or conditioners not specifically formulated for exotic leather as they can cause damage.

3. Humidity is Key: Exotic leathers benefit from slightly higher humidity levels to prevent drying out. Consider storing these items in a room with a consistent humidity level.
