Caring for your leather

Leather furniture in a normal domestic environment requires little maintenance; regular care of leather does ensure its lasting quality and some general rules for regular and maintenance are:

Clean the leather with a soft damp cloth taking care not to soak the leather.

For more thorough treatment the leather should be cleaned using a light soapy solution; mild soap please, never detergent. Apply to the surface of the leather in circular motions until the dirty parts are clean. Repeat this process using water only.

After this treatment an approved leather conditioner can be used at intervals of about 3-6 months.

Do not use saddle soap, wax polishes or spray polishes.

Do not use any product or any method of cleaning not recommended.

Avoid letting buckles, studs and zips come into direct contact with the furniture.

Avoid drying out the leather by taking extra care where there is excessive heating.

Modern leather has a soft glove-like feel and will maintain its suppleness. During the first few weeks of use, wrinkles and creases will form naturally

These are normal. They have been designed into the furniture to give a soft inviting look which is an inherent quality of leather upholstery.
