Goatskin leather is slightly tougher, yet softer than cow leather. Suede brings a soft texture made from the underside, sanded down and buffed. Apply water and stain protector before wearing and after each clean, avoiding wax polish as this will spoil 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.
