New leather products look great in your lounge room or your car, but over time the appearance may wear out. The leather may start to fade, have visible scuffs, cuts and even stains from perspiration, body oils and salt from your skin. And let’s not forget the odd accident or damage sustained by our pets!
Leather is a natural product and its surface contains “pores”. This helps the leather to breathe. It is therefore important to ensure proper maintenance of leather goods for lasting effect.
There are many advantages to having leather goods over fabric. Leather can last up to five times longer than fabric and any damaged leather can be reversed and restored.
There is a wide range of cleaning products available but in some cases these may cause more damage than good. This may cause damage to the leather finish and in turn promote dryness and cracks.
Our leather specialists have the experience and training to clean, renew and protect your leather goods with the correct products.
For leather to retain that luxurious feel, same as the time first day it arrived to your home, it needs to be looked after properly. It is recommended that leather should be cleaned every 3 months. Prevention is always better than cure!
It is important to identify the type of leather before attempting to clean and protect your leather. This will ensure the maximum life from your leather and keep it looking beautiful.
There are different types of leather that differ in toughness, softness and strength. No matter which leather product you have, all leather requires regular care.
Suede is made from the underside skin and does not have a surface finish.
Nubuck is very soft to touch and difficult to clean effectively. These types of leather should be maintained with a suitable cleaner to repel oils and water.
Aniline leather is the top quality natural leather.There are visible surface grain markings and is very easy to
It is the pigmented leather that accounts for 90% of home leather furniture and all car leather. This type of leather is derived from the uppermost layer of a hide (which is the best part of the hide)!
A clear topcoat and pigments are applied, which prevents the appearance of natural leather. The leather is sealed with a durable finish. The leather will not scratch easily and will not change colour when in contact with water.

The surface of the leather, if looked at under a microscope, will show an uneven surface and when leather becomes soiled, the soiling embeds itself into the ‘valleys’ of the leather. Please remember, that by rubbing hard on the leather surface, you will only push the dirt deeper into the leather. Keep the leather furniture out of direct sunlight and away from heat. Keep sharp objects away from leather furniture that may cut and damage the leather. If you keep pets in the house, be aware that allowing your pet to use the leather furniture will damage the leather finish.
With regular leather and protection from the leather cleaning expert, you can prevent undue wear on your leather furniture and keep it looking great.
Do not give up on the comfortable leather furniture you have and get new leather furniture.
