Care and Handling of Leather

Leather is a versatile, durable and prestigious material, with a wide range of desirable attributes – such as flexibility, strength, mouldability, breathability, friction resistance and with the possibility of being prepared in a way to be resistant to heat and water.

Leather will retain its appearance and its functional properties if it is correctly handled and maintained. The correct method of care and handling will depend on the type of leather it is.
