THE CARE OF LEATHER
Genuine leather requires very little care. Dust it regularly, and minor spots can be washed off. Use lukewarm water and mild soap, but nothing abrasive. Work up some suds and go over the surface with a soft cloth. Rinse off any soap film with clean water and toweling. It may dry dull, but normal gloss can be restored by rubbing with clean toweling. These instructions apply to finished leather only, not to any suede. Never use furniture polish, oil, varnish, ammonia, or cleaning solvents. Leather will last a lifetime if given the care it deserves.
About Our Cowhides
Our upholstery leather is made from the hide of a cow. It is usually sold by the entire hide. The average hide ranges in size from approximately 45-55 square feet. The cost is calculated by multiplying the number of square feet in the hide times the price per square foot of the particular leather.
