Leather garment care

  • Leather garments need special care. Trust in professional cleaners and avoid doing anything that may harm your jacket.
  • When leather garments are cleaned for the very first time, they may present some differentiation in their colour.
  • Any additional elements on the leather garment (buttons, buckles etc) may cause problems in their cleaning, especially if there are of bad quality.
  • Colourful jackets (suede, nubuck, etc), in their cleaning, may face some shift in their colours –especially in red, blue and black.
  • Leather garments that come in a set (suits or attached belts or hoods) must be cleaned together, even if only one part needs it. Otherwise, there might be a difference in their colour.
  • When cleaning a suede or nubuck jacket, the glue that was used in its making may surface, creating dark lines near the seams.
  • Leather is a natural material that may have some imperfections on its surface which may become more prominent after it has been cleaned.
  • For leather garments made of nappa leather, dying in their colour is recommended.
  • Leather garments should be cleaned and oiled immediately after they get stained, otherwise their cleaning is more difficult and in some cases impossible.
  • White furs in order to be perfectly white have been whitened. During their cleaning, they return to their natural ecru colour.
  • Leather garments should be stored in a shady and cool place, in a specifically-designed case. Avoid exposing the garment to sun, because it can alter the colour and create differentiations in the colour.
  • Avoid wearing your leather jacket in rainy days. In case it gets wet, leave it to dry naturally in room temperature.
  • In order to remove dust from the surface of a suede or nubuck garment, brush it with a soft brush or a sponge. If it is nappa, you can clean it with a wet cloth.
