Care & Buying Guide

Utah aniline leather has been designed to allow the natural variation of the hide to come through, and as a result healed scars and marks will appear through the finished coating.

Changes to colour will occur when the leather is pulled or stretched creating a unique patina over time.

The leather should be protected from direct sunlight and away from direct heat sources to avoid the leather from drying out.
