Caring for leather and suede!
If you leave it in full sun it will fade,
in a very dry atmosphere it will dry and possibly crack and
in a damp cupboard it will go mouldy so please avoid doing these
things! If it gets soaked on a long rainy walk treat it like
you would a good pair of leather shoes, unbuckle all straps
pack gently with scrunched up newspaper (undyed tissue paper
for light coloured items) and leave in a well ventilated place
to dry naturally please never ever force dry leather or suede.
In normal use very little maintenance will
be required. If it gets a little dirty or to remove a stain
use saddle soap on leather and a suede cleaner on suede, never
You might want to give leather a bit of a
polish up from time to time a neutral shoe polish applied sparingly
and buffed up well is as good as anything. If the leather has
gotten a wee bit scuffed use the appropriate coloured shoe polish
but take care to buff up really well so that no residue transfers
to your clothes.
