The treatment of furniture leathers

Most furniture leathers are coated with a colour pigment and protected with a matt top coat. There are also high-quality porousd leathers (called aniline or semi-aniline leather), suede or nubuck and cheap coated PU leather. On aniline leather, a rubbed-in drop of water, in an undamaged area, will darken the leather. It’s porousd.

The following instructions are for pigmented, matt top-coated leather. Please contact a specialist if you have one of the other mentioned types.

Recommendation for the care of new leather (pigmented napa):

In the case of visible soiling, the leather should be treated with the Mild Leather Cleaner. Depending on the amount of use, the leather should be treated sparingly with our care cream, Leather Protector , every three to six months. This product is ideal for napa leather. It maintains softness and flexibility while preventing shrinkage and fading.

Discolouration caused by jeans and dark clothing is a problem on new, light-coloured leather. In such cases, we recommend protecting contact areas (hand, head and leg areas) with Leather Shield. It prevents dye migration and friction damage. Always clean first when soiled!

Recommendation for the care of older leather:

Soiling should be cleaned with the Mild Leather Cleaner to prevent fixation of dirt. The Leather Cleaning Brush helps to remove soiling from the leather grain.

Leathers that show light fading or areas of friction wear can be refreshed with Leather Fresh, a leather toner which is available in 46 standard colours or mixed according to your sample. Leather Fresh also re-seals the damaged surface. Degrease damaged areas with Leather Cleaning Spirit before toning.

To rejuvenate and maintain older leathers, we recommend using Leather Protector. With its anti-oxidants, it slows degradation and prevents shrinkage and cracking, UV filters protect against fading and, more importantly, protect against UV rays which reduce the tear strength of the leather. The conditioning oil-emulsion maintains softness.

In severe cases, we recommend to send us photos via e-mail or to describe the problem that has occurred. With this information, we can estimate better whether our products are able to solve the problem or not. Rough or cracking areas should be smoothed with the Leather Sanding Pad before toning. Deeper cracks and smaller rips can be filled with Fluid Leather.

Some heavily damaged or delicate aniline or nubuck leathers need professional treatment. Contact us in such cases. We can check if we can recommend someone near.
