We just wanted to take time out and point out some links on our site about leather care and information about leather goods.
A lot of people are asking about how to take care of their leather jackets or other leather items and so we are dedicating this post to the subject of leather care.
We will link to this post in our monthly newsletter as well as on our site. If you, the reader have any questions about this topic, then please feel free to ask it using the comments / email link below and we will be sure to respond promptly.
Please note that there is a fundamental difference between leather and suede articles. Generally, leather cleaners and conditioners work well on leather articles as well as artificial (or synthetic) leather items. However, please do not use leather conditioners on suede or nubuck leather. These items are very delicate and can even be ruined by a little excess rain, let alone the wrong leather lotion!
For suede or nubuck items, including furniture patches, shoes and jackets, you can try to ask about cleaning and care to your local dry cleaning store that has a leather expert on staff. Look in the physical phone book or the one online to find leather experts in the dry cleaning section.
You can also try to find a special lotion or cleaning solution online for exclusively suede or nubuck leather products. We at CLC
are working to source out a proper cleaning lotion that is made just for suede or nubuck items.
For more details on leather types, please visit our extensive section about leather care
We also have an excellent and affordable leather repair kit
that is made in the USA and is very popular. It works well on small repairs, whether on upholstery / furniture, automobiles, shoes, jackets, briefcases or other similar items.
Looking forward to your questions and comments!
