CARING FOR LEATHER

There are many types of leather, ranging from vegetable-tanned to chrome-tanned, full grain to suede, finished to open surface. Within each of these common distinctions are an almost limitless amount of variables that will contribute to how the leather ages... and so not all leather can be treated equally.
Our guide below is not a strict set of rules to follow, but a series of steps to help point you in the right direction. It’s important to remember that leather care is mostly a personal choice. If you want to keep your Stitch & Hide leathers goods soft, supple, and make them last, then we recommend you consider our guidelines below.

Caring for your Stitch & Hide goods

This guide is based on products from our Core, Classic and Washed Collections only. Due to the finish, we don’t advise conditioning on our Men’s Heritage Wallets, or our older Signature Collection.

To reduce the risk of surprise you should always test a hidden area first before you begin a full condition.

To avoid surface build-ups forming over time do a quick wipe over every other day with a soft cloth.

For a more thorough clean we recommend you condition once or twice a year with our own leather conditioner using the steps below.
  • Wipe down your goods to remove any dust particles.
  • Apply a small amount of conditioner to a soft, lint-free cloth.
  • With small, circular motions work the conditioner into the leather evenly.
  • Leave an hour for drying and assess if a further coat is needed.
  • Allow up to 24 hours for your goods to cure before using them again.
