Leather is a natural material that acquires its own natural patina with use, giving each piece a unique character. It is a very durable material, but it does require minimal maintenance to keep it in good condition. These tips will help you keep your purchase in top shape.

The finishes of our leathers are very natural. This implies that the pores of the skin are more open and therefore more susceptible to absorbing any element that comes into contact with it. The more a leather repels an external agent, the less open its pores are and the less natural its finish. This is why intense stains, especially from oily elements, can be difficult to remove on our leathers and we advise you to avoid them as much as possible. In some cases it is useful to apply a leather cleaner. In others, good hydration will be needed. At IKIGAILEATHER we are convinced that each piece will acquire signs of use over time, but we think that it is part of the life of each product and that it is integrated into the natural process.
Machine washing, with soaps, chemical products such as stain removers or detergents, and washing with hot water is not advisable. If you want more advice visit this website.
