TOP TIPS FOR LOOKING AFTER YOUR LEATHER GOODS
DON’T LET IT DRY OUT
Stop leather from drying out by keeping it fed. Gently apply a wax such as Sedgwick’s leather care or Abbey saddle balm. As there is an increased chance of drying during transportation and production of bridles, fashion belts etc. we recommend feeding your leather before point of sale every time.
AVOID SUN EXPOSURE
Do not store leather in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time. If this cannot be avoided we recommend using leather protection such as Fiebing’s UV leather shield. Apply on a monthly basis to protect the colour of your leather.
AVOID SHARP EDGES
Keep your leather away from sharp edges and animal claws to prevent it from being scored.
Wipe regularly with a dry clean cloth to prevent the excessive build-up of grit and dirt, which could cause an abrasive effect.
AVOID HEAT & DAMP
Avoid storing leather near intense heat sources such as open fires and in damp areas.
CLEAR UP SPILLS QUICKLY
Cear up spills as soon as possible before the liquid sets. Use a damp clean cloth to wipe and leave to dry.
AVOID AMMONIA BASED PRODUCTS
Do not use furniture polish, abrasive cleaners, varnishes or any ammonia based products as these products may contain solvents which can break down the protective coatings of the leather
