Ettinger's

Dressed Calf

Using special dyes and finishes to obtain a more controlled aspect and display brighter colours, these leathers are very resilient.

Taking the sides only from full grain calf skins, this leather is chrome tanned to perfection then dyed through with a more pigmented finish to obtain an array of colourful tones. This leather is firm and will sustain a good amount of wear.

Dressed Calf Leather: Care & Wear

The best way to clean any leather is to wipe it gently with a soft damp cloth, then leave to dry naturally. You may use a small amount of Ettinger Leather Balm to clean the leather and to remove impurities. Applying a little neutral wax once in a while will help protect and nourish the leather so that your leather item will last for many years.

Generally speaking, avoid using your leather accessories in very wet or humid conditions. If they do get wet, leave out to dry naturally, away from strong heat sources. Once dry, check for any water marks and apply a little leather wax if necessary. Leather is naturally a supple material so will take shape easily, which you may or may not want. In any case, please avoid compressing your leather accessories for prolonged periods (for example in a tight pocket) as this will deform the items and can strain the stitching.

Although this leather is dyed through and the colour should not wear off, please be careful not to rub or scratch the surface. This is fine leather, as such it needs to be looked after properly.
