Smooth leather has a uniform and very fine grain surface. After tanning it is coated in a thin lacquer to create a hi-shine finish that does not obscure the beauty of the leather. Apply a suitable protector before wearing and after each clean to maintain quality and elasticity. For regular cleaning, wipe and then gently buff with a lint free cloth to remove dust and dirt and restore shine. If dampened allow leather to air-dry naturally away from direct heat.
