Cleaning Instructions

Natural, aniline leathers have little surface protection. If your aniline leather does become soiled, immediately blot excess liquid with a soft, clean cloth. Then clean the entire area (i.e. the entire seat cushion, arm rest, etc.) with a clean, damp cloth and clear luke warm water, starting from the outside of the spill to the center.

Do not use: Any saddle soaps, oils, abrasives, cleaners, soaps, furniture polish, varnish or ammonia water.

Please note: Due to the natural characteristics of this leather, scratches and marks may appear over time. This appearance is the "character" of the natural leather.
