Tips & tricks to caring for leather and suede

Before choosing the right look for you, it's always smart to learn more about caring for your fine leather and suede garments.

Compared to other materials, all-natural suede and leather requires special care, but that doesn't mean they require spending a small fortune on dry cleaning bills to maintain their bright, fresh appearance.

Help maintain the natural color of leather and suede by keeping garments away from body oils that, over time, may darken their appearance - especially around the neckline. A common solution? Wear a fashionable scarf or turtleneck sweater to enhance your cool weather look, while also protecting the collar from discoloration.

In addition, always keep leather and suede garments away from hairsprays, perfumes, or any other chemical substances that over time will contribute to color darkening, drying and cracking,

That said, another major cause of drying and cracking of leather garments is the way they are stored when not in use, Leather and suede should always be stored away from strong sunlight, and kept in a porous cloth or nylon (never plastic) garment bag that allows the material to breathe.

Overall, keep in mind that leather and suede are living materials that, with a little tender loving care, will provide you with years of fashionable wear that never goes out of style.
