leather products and how to care for them
Leather is a fantastic and durable material for sofas and chairs. The beauty of leather is that in the right conditions the surface can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth. For this reason leather is a popular choice for families with young children or those who just like easy to clean surfaces.
Just like your skin, leather furniture ages with time. This is generally a good thing, as older leather has that unique look that everyone wants – we call it character. However, leather that has been neglected over time can dry out and crack. Much like everything else you own, how you care for your leather will determine its longevity. Regularly cleaning and conditioning or revitalising your leather furniture will keep your leather supple preventing it from cracking and unwanted aging. The experts recommend cleaning then either conditioning or revitalising (depending on the type of leather) every three to six months - depending on factors such as the frequency of use, heating and sunlight exposure.
