Every piece of handcrafted leather is unique, and each item’s individual characteristics and color will naturally mature through daily use and exposure to the elements, adding to its charm. We recommend spot cleaning your Shinola leather good with a dry cloth to remove any dirt. Do not use water on lightly treated or untreated leathers as those products are vulnerable to staining. For other non-suede leathers, you can use a small amount of soap with lukewarm water as necessary. Air dry, do not expose to heat. Please note that water staining may occur if the product gets saturated. Coloration can also transfer to or from the product due to friction with garments. Care instructions vary depending on leather type. Please take care in applying treatments, spot test first, as conditioner can cause product discoloration.
