Caring for leather

All our pieces are made by hand in our Lancashire workshop by a single artisan. This guide covers everything you need to know to make sure your furniture lasts long into the future.

Natural Markings

Markings such as scars, insect bites, wrinkles and veining are natural characteristics of real leather. Colour variations do also occur within a single hide. These indicate authenticity and shouldn’t be seen as defects, but as markers of quality.

General Cleaning

We recommend that you clean leather upholstery using a neutral soap or baby shampoo diluted with water, and a dry, soft, white cloth. We do not recommend using any kind of conditioner or chemicals. Just dusting and cleaning up spots when they occur should be enough to ensure a long life. Remember that leather is a natural material that lives and breathes. Changes will therefore occur naturally as it ages.


For stains caused by soft drinks, coffee, tea, milk, chocolate, oil, fat, cosmetics, foundation cream: remove the stain from the surface as quickly as possible by dabbing with absorbent cloth or paper.

Then delicately rub, working from the outside towards the centre of the stain using a cloth soaked in a water and mild white soap solution. Do not soak the leather surface, and dry the surface immediately using a clean cloth. Do not dry the leather in direct sunlight or with a hair dryer.

Do not:

  • Expose to direct sunlight or to powerful lamps to ensure the colour of the covering remains bright.
  • Use unapproved detergents which may irreparably damage the leather covering, causing cracks and changes in colour.
  • Position less than 50 cm away from heat sources such as heaters, radiators or fires.
