Like a fine wine, quality leather becomes better with age. Like our skin, animal leather can dry out, crack, tear, and become damaged based on the way we treat it. A number of things can affect the leathers surface, such as the sun, rain, snow, and dry/cold air.
The life of your leather product depends on how it is treated. For the most part, leather treatment is only necessary every 6 months.
Adding a coat of organic, waterproofing, leather balm will help maintain the life of your leather goods for years to come.
For our products, we suggest applying Hide Society leather balm to waterproof and protect the material. This will ensure your product stays in tip-top shape, but it can also be applied whenever you feel your product is getting dirty, dry, or losing its color and shine.
Applying balm to your leather
What you'll need: a soft bristle brush, our organic balm, and a cloth without large fibers(such as a kitchen towel), an old t-shirt will work just fine.
Leather is the product of animal hide. Based on the way it is treated, it will look magnificent or it will slowly lose its life. Leather is greatly affected by the environment it is in and there are ways you can prevent damage to your leather products.
Water is not your leathers friend! While water will not ruin your leather products entirely, exposure can cause damage and flush the oils out, which will cause cracking on the surface. When leather dries after being wet, it will hold whatever shape it is left in.
Where you store your leather products can potentially cause damage. The sun will actually darken your product the longer it's exposed and cause it to dry out. (dry out= surface cracks)
