Caring for your leather

The qualities of leather, created by nature and preserved by the tanner, are superior to those of any manmade synthetic material. To protect your investment and ensure years of comfort, you’ll want to give your unique leather sofas consistent maintenance. The right care will increase the life of the furniture for many years. Just like a pair of jeans that looks and feels better when it’s broken in, genuine leather furniture looks better with age. Blemishes such as scratches are part of the aging process that will eventually produce a desirable patina.

  • Some soaps can leave behind a soap scum or residue. Some treatments darken leather, creating greasy spots that will encourage mold and mildew problems.
  • Never rub or scrub spots.
  • All leather treatments, cleaners or conditioners should be tested in an inconspicuous spot on the furniture, in order to make sure there are no adverse chemical reactions.
