Understand Leather & Care
Types of Leather that we use
This kind of leather is tanned using natural tannins from materials such as tree bark and leaves, so it's
the most environmentally friendly leather choice. The resulting leather comes in shades of tan ranging from nearly white to deep tan; the colour gets darker and softer with time and exposure to sun and oils.
Care: Veg-tanned leather will develop water marks when it comes in contact with water; however, since it changes shade overtime, the water marks will blend in eventually with wear. To clean, use leather balm with natural bristles. Conditioner might darken the leather but gives a coat of protection from scratches and moisture.
The chemicals involved in the chrome-tanning process soften the leather and give it a soft, drapable quality that lends itself to be the ideal material for clothing and upholstery projects. Chrome-tanned leather will less likely to change overtime, though they might fade slightly.
Care: very low maintenance leather, occasionally condition with leather oil or balm to spot clean. sometimes, a damp cloth would do the work.
Suede is produced by rubbing the interior side of a hide to a velvety finish. It can be made from a variety of animal hides.
Care: recommend professional cleaning for stubborn stains.
