Leather is the product of tanning raw hide in order to make it durable and flexible.
The tanning process uses agents to convert the proteins of raw hide into a constant material and with a number of coatings applied builds their wear and stain resistance.
Overtime the build-up of body oils, food stains, dust and grime can break down these coatings which can alter the appearance of your piece and its condition.
Therefore caring for your leather piece is imperative.
Remember leather is a natural product it is designed to age, wear and soften over time, and as a result the colour variations and textures are often unique.
It is important to understand that softer leather products are prone to stretching over time and as a result additional care must be taken and those lighter colour products may absorb dye that it comes in contact with so please be careful in these instances.
