Care For Your Products

Our vegetable tanned eco-leather is extremely durable, but it may still require some care from time to time. Part of what gives our leather its ability to weather and age beautifully is that it’s absorbent. As your product ages it will develop character from its environment. To keep your product looking beautiful, do your best to avoid getting it dusty, wet or oiled. Store it in a dry place out of the sun.

 

All leather will darken slightly when treatments are applied. Over time this will add character to your products. When trying out new care products first apply them in a small less noticeable area to make sure it works well. Then apply it to larger areas.
If your product gets completely wet, allow it to dry at room temperature and in its natural position (without creases or folds). If it’s stiff when it dries, use a leather moisturiser to restore its supple condition.

 

Our eco-leather has been produced with oils and waxes which preserve it and keep it durable. Wetting the leather excessively can slowly wash these oils out, change its colour, and dry out the leather.
First give your products a wipe down with a damp cloth to remove dust and grime. Then replace lost moisture and oils with a natural leather wax, balm or oil. Usually a neutral coloured leather shoe polish will do. Take care to avoid cheap nasty synthetic polishes.

 

Your stainless steel hardware may also age over time. The current hardware is a medium grade stainless steel which may slowly develop a tarnish (higher grade stainless coming soon). This can be rubbed off easily by hand before it becomes permanent or you could use a metal polish and cloth for a seriously long lasting finish.
Enjoy your loyal companion.

Stay true.
