How to clean and care for leather objects.

Whether it’s your leather chair, your preloved leather bag or your favourite leather jacket,
regular maintenance is key if you want to enjoy your leather piece for a lifetime.

A simple Leather Care Routine on how to clean and care for leather.

Step 1 – Clean the surface.
Start by mixing a dash of our Restoring Leather Cleanser with
water in a jar to generate foam. Use a clean and soft cloth or sponge
to apply the foam to your leather piece. Do not spot clean any leather,
but clean the entire surface and wipe the surface dry. Our Leather cleanser contains organic soap derived from coconut, and zero harmful chemicals.

Step 2 – Protect and polish the surface
After cleaning your item, use our Protecting Leather Balm.
Use a damp sponge and apply the balm in circles over the entire piece, then simply wipe off the excess balm and polish with a clean dry soft cloth.
Our balm contains only natural ingredients and will preserve your
leather item by making it softer and more resistant to stains and water.
The balm also leaves a lovely scent of forest that will enhance
the moment.

Voilà, you are done!

Everyday care tips for leather

Leather is very sensitive to spills, especially liquids. Removing it quickly from the surface and prevent the leather from soaking in and forming a hard-to-remove stain.

• Keep your leather furniture, bags, journals, wallets, etc away from direct sunlight and
electric heaters as it can dry out the natural oils of the leather and further fading the leather.
• By using a leather conditioner or cream moisturiser on the leather you will prevent that it will dry out and shrink or crack.
• As leather goods are susceptible to absorb grease and oil, make sure to clean the entire surface with clean hands.
• Remember to always check with the manufacturer before applying any product to your leather item.
