Why is Leather Care Important?
Today’s leather manufacturers and tanneries apply many different coatings to leather hides in the tanning process.
These coatings are designed to protect the leathers from stain and wear resistance.
The idea of looking after the leather on your furniture is to keep these coatings in good condition for as long as possible.
By allowing a build up of dirt, grime, dust, body oils and food stains and not doing anything to prevent that can cause these coatings to breakdown and speed up the deterioration of the leather.
