  • Avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight to prevent it from fading over time
  • Maintain at least two feet between your furniture and heating sources to avoid drying leather out
  • Like any item, leather can accumulate dust. Remove dust particles from the surface with a soft cloth, making it ideal for dust sensitive people
  • Certain types of leathers perform better when preventative maintenance is practiced.
  • Use general household cleaning products. Never use chemicals or cleaning agents (such as furniture polish, ammonia, or detergent soaps) and abrasives. Avoid all products containing solvents, silicones, or oils, as they may negatively affect the leather’s surface.
