Suede has a soft texture made from the underside, sanded down and buffed. A vegetable tanned leather using bark and leaves which develops a beautiful patina. Gentle on skin but sensitive to humidity so moisture can leave a contact colour residue that will subside. Apply water and stain protector, avoiding wax polish as this will damage the special finish. For regular cleaning use a suede brush moving along the grain to remove dust and dirt and a gum eraser for any scuffs. If dampened allow leather to air-dry naturally away from direct heat.
