Soft Dressed Calf
This soft, grainy leather is great to the touch and the bright, enduring colours make it very appealing.
This leather is made with top quality Italian calf sides, which have been chrome tanned, dyed through and then drum rolled to give the leather a buttery soft touch and a slightly more pronounced grain. It is wonderful to handle and will not wear out easily.
Soft 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 Ettinger Leather Balm to clean the leather and remove any dirt. 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.
