Our smooth leathers have not been specifically treated for water repellency. Thus, the leather may temporarily darken when wet, returning to its original tone once completely dry. The waxed surface may assist in staving off some dirt. With continued use, a lovely shine or patina will develop, only enhancing the beauty of this leather.
To clean, a soft cotton cloth slightly dampened with distilled water (sodium-free seltzer water may be substituted) and a mild bar soap, applied in a circular motion. Do not saturate with water and avoid using detergents, solvents, and other abrasive materials to clean.
These instructions apply to all pieces from the City, Wexford and Alto collections, among others. These collections require no creams, polishes, or leather conditioning products to maintain its beauty.
Please note, anything containing dyes (ball point pens, lipsticks, etc.) cannot be removed as they will re-dye the surface.
