HOW TO CLEAN SUEDE:
LEATHER AND HEMP CANVAS CARE:
ANNUAL CARE FOR AUTOMOTIVE LEATHER:
The majority of our leather was designed and intended for car seats and steering wheels and is very durable and requires minimal upkeep.
Finished Leather: This leather is designed for performance for decades in a car and will get a natural patina over time. We do encourage "seasoning" the leather once a year with an oil or polish ( we use neatsfoot oil and mink oil ) or you can use your product of choice you'd use to care for your leather car seats. This keeps the material hydrated and protected for natural wear.
Smooth Uncoated Leather: The more rare leather used on some of our products based on what we get that month from our automotive partners is the smoothest of them all. This leather will change in color slightly over time naturally and you can darken it and protect it with oil and polish. Same care instructions as finished leather- however you may want to oil or polish this leather twice a year to maximize the life of your product.
