PRODUCT CARE

Leather

Leather is a natural material and is made from the skin of an animal. Therefore, some scars, marks or unusual grain may be present. This is proof of genuine leather and is all part of this amazing material. Due to the vegetable tanning process, some differences in tone or colour may be present and these will even out in time as a patina develops from use. If your leather product becomes exceedingly wet colours may transfer.

Care instructions
  • We recommend regularly treating your Farrah leather product with a quality leather conditioner such as Joseph Lyddy Dubbin. This will protect the leather, deliver longer life and develop a beautiful deep patina.
  • If your Farrah leather product becomes wet, allow the product to dry naturally. Do not oven dry or force dry by direct heat source as this may damage the leather. Once dry throughly condition.
  • Prior to conditioning, brush excess dust and dirt off of the leather. Slow and even warming of your Farrah product will draw conditioner deeper into the grain of the leather. This can be done by leaving your product on a window sill, on a car dashboard or warming with a hair dryer.
