How to care for your leather goods.

One of the reasons we chose to use Horween's Chromexcel is that it is so well nourished with waxes, oils, and greases that the leather practically polishes itself. This is particularly true of small leather goods that you handle on a regular bases. For example, just the simple act of putting your wallet into your pocket and pulling it out will keep it well polished.

 

If it turns out that this is not enough or you need to clean off dirt or buildup you can polish it up in a few simple steps.

 

Standard Maintenance
  • Brush the leather with fine Horsehair Brush to remove any loose dirt

  • Take a very lightly dampened cloth and quickly wipe down the leather and brush it again

Cleaning a Heavily
Soiled Item
  • Brush the leather with fine Horsehair Brush to remove any loose dirt

  • Take a very lightly dampened cloth and quickly wipe down the leather and brush it again

  • Apply your favorite neutral colored leather polish (we recommend Zoes Venetian Cream). Apply the polish in circular motions evenly over the item – bring to a light, cloudy haze

  • Let the item sit for 10 minutes

 

  • Buff off excess polish with a soft, dry cloth

  • Briefly brush with a fine horsehair brush
