Hemp is robust and breathable, the smooth leather has a uniform and a very fine grain surface. Apply a compatable textile/leather stain and water protector before wearing and after each clean. For removing any mud allow to dry before gently brushing off. Many stains can be removed from textiles using warm water with a neutral cleaning agent, applying gentle pressure to avoid leaving friction marks. For regularly cleaning leather use a soft dry cloth. If dampening either material allow to air-dry naturally away from direct heat.
