Our full grain Italian leather benefits from a dose of Tanner Bates Hide Food every 6 months or more often if you are lucky enough to find yourself in a hot dry climate for a period of time, in which case apply every 3 months. This way your leather will give many years of service becoming even more desirable with time and use.
Our Naturally tanned leather is tough and can take a battering. We stitch it with a durable rot resistant thread which will give years of service. Occasionally a dose of Tanner Bates Liquid wax will make it look good as new
Our leather is ethically and sustainably processed. The tannery uses a mixture of tree barks to transform the animal hides to leather. This is an ancient tradition which yields the familiar leather smell. Natural oils evaporate over time and need replenishing. Your leather benefits from and will look its very best if given an occasional dose of natural waxes and oils. Our Leather care information card is included with every purchase.
