We use only Spanish quality genuine leather from animals that have been reared as a food source.
We use two different kinds of genuine leather types:
The leather we use is very resistant to stains, water and heat. Its very pliable, and supple, soft and pleasant to the touch.
CARE: For cleaning we advise using warm water or a mild saddle soap with a
soft cloth while cleaning in small circular motions.
2. Suede leather
Suede leather has a unique feel and look among leather types. It’s the soft and fuzzy underside of hide. But suede leather is more sensitive than the usual leather. Therefore it requires much more care:
This involves a brass wire brush (for very short suede) or an actual suede brush (the kind with a visibly fuzzy nap). Perform quick, light strokes while using either one so the bristles get deep into the fibers removing dirt/scum or dust.
Always brush the nap of the suede in one direction. This keeps the item looking consistently clean and tidy. For suede with a longer nap, it's better to use a multi-headed brush or crepe brush for extra softness. Another option is the double-sided brush – with a soft-bristled brush on one side and a suede block on the other.
Cleaning Methods For Specific Types Of Stains
All you need is a suede protector spray which you'll find in shoe repair stores
It's water- and dirt-repellant…and the best version would be a waterproof silicone-based spray with a neutral color.
When you've got this spray at home, learn to use it after each time you clean your suede and the item has fully dried. Here's how to apply the spray to your suede items:
How often should you spray your items?
I'd recommend spraying once every 2 months.
Note: Do NOT consider using leather creams or shoe polish. They don't work on suede the way they do on other leather types. They can disrupt the fibers and spoil your suede items even if they aren't stained or dirty.
There are two main issues to watch out for when storing your suede: (1) direct sunlight and (2) a lack of air circulation. So you ought to keep them in a cool, dry place that doesn't receive sunlight. Suede that's left exposed to the sun can shrink, fade or harden. Avoid wrapping the items in plastic as well. The fibers in the suede need some breathing room.
