They are made from either Full Grain Aniline or Semi-Aniline cowhide leather (depending on the particular product) which will patina over time and any variations in colour, grain and texture represent the intended design. To maintain the original presentation and finish of the product we recommend cleaning it with a soft, dry cloth and limiting its exposure to direct heat or intensive sunlight. Care should be taken when wearing light coloured garments to avoid colour transfer.
