Q: How do I clean and care for my leather product?
A: To keep the leather supple and prevent fading, protect it from exposure to direct sunlight and heating vents.
For minor spots and spills, immediately wipe with a soft white cloth dampened with distilled water and let air–dry.
For spills of butter, oil or grease, wipe up any excess with a clean, dry cloth. Do not apply water or try to wash the spot. Leave the spot alone. The spot should dissipate into leather after a short period of time.
Do not use chemicals, as these can damage the leather.
Do not dry with hair dryers, heaters, etc.
Important note: The ability to "rub out" marks is sign of a high quality hide. When leather scratches, rub the mark with your hand or fingertips to move natural oils around to correct the mark. Over time the scratch will dissipate.
Q: Are your Croc and Ostrich leathers the real thing?
A: All Croc and Ostrich prints on our website are achieved by “embossing” the leather.
Exotic hides are very expensive, so by embossing the leather you get the look without the price tag. Plus the added bonus of being the more socially and environmentally conscious option.
Embossed leather can really make a statement when used in a room as an accent piece or a focal point.
