Leather shows naturally occurring marks such as wrinkles, scars, scratches and bites. It is also a hard-wearing and versatile material that acquires a characteristic and pleasing patina over time. This is all normal and to be expected. In fact, it is these characteristics that differentiate real hide from synthetic or re-constituted coverings. Take care not to expose your leather or hide product to continuous direct sunlight as this may lead to fading.
For accidental spills, try to wipe up immediately and avoid letting the stain dry. Light stains can be removed with a diluted solution of a neutral soap in lukewarm water, but be careful not to soak the leather or hide. Occasionally, pencil marks and other light marks can be removed by rubbing the area lightly with an eraser. If your leather or hide is heavily soiled, we recommend professional cleaning.
