Leather Care

Vachetta Leather

Premium leather from Italy made from the ancient vegetable tanning process. It is smooth to the touch and rich in tones providing highs and lows in color. This leather will patina and change color through natural exposure to sunlight and other elements, adding to its character. This leather is lightly treated therefore is susceptible to water damage and stains.

Non Leather

Use a dry, clean, and soft cloth to dust or remove debris. Spot clean with a soft cloth dampened with a small drop of mild soap and water allowing to air dry. Always test a small area first, when cleaning. Note that color transfer to or from some fabrics is possible.
