Since leather is a natural product, there will be faint surface marks on your
leather, whether you purchase pure and natural top grain or grain-corrected top
grain. These scars, scratches, and color variations are not defects, but rather
an indication of genuine leather. They do not affect the durability of your
Never use furniture polish, saddle soap, abrasive cleaners, or household
cleaning products on any leather upholstery.
Protect leather furniture from direct sunlight to prevent fading. This
precaution is especially necessary for full grain and unfinished top grain
leathers. Also, you should keep your leather furniture away from direct heat
sources such as heat vents, radiators or fireplaces. Leather may crack or peel
when placed within three feet of a heat source.
Blot up spills immediately with a clean white cloth or sponge.
For protected (semi-aniline and pigmented) leather, wipe with lukewarm water and
allow to air dry. Routine vacuuming is recommended to
keep your leather looking its best.
Living with unprotected leather (unfinished top grain) is like living with a
well loved, well-used leather saddle or jacket. Natural oils will stain
untreated leather slightly, giving it a lovely patina over time. Care should be
taken to blot up food or liquid spills immediately, as they will be difficult
to remove later.
For oil, butter or grease stains, blot the excess grease with a clean, white
cloth. Do not apply water to the spot. The grease spot should dissipate into
the leather over time.
If your leather becomes soiled from use or it has a stain which you cannot
remove, you should contact a professional leather furniture cleaning service.
