LEATHER CARE

To care for you leather goods is to be intentional and purpose-led in your shopping habits


We use various types of leather to make our goods, from semi-aniline to veg tan. As leather is a natural and porous material, it's subject to change throughout its lifetime with daily use. This is completely normal and your leather products should evolve with you. 
Leather is not waterproof, though a splash of water here and there should not hurt it, water spotting may occur if exposed to rain/water. All care should be taken to avoid contact with excessive sweat, water, perfumes oils, or dirt to prevent unwanted discoloration and/or damage.


     


        VEG, OIL, AND SEMI-ANILINE LEATHERS 
         

        1-2 times a year : Take a mildly damp soft cloth and use a tiny quantity of a leather cleaner like a saddle soap gently wipe in a circular motion. Let dry overnight.

         

        Apply conditioner to replace the moisture it lost when it was being cleaned.

        *Remember that some conditioners darken leather more than others, so make sure to test in an inconspicuous spot before applying to the entire item. 

           


          SUEDE CARE 
           

          Suede is very delicate. To remove lint, dust, and dirt from your strap, use a soft and clean brush/toothbrush and lightly brush over the surface of the strap to remove debris. Do not expose to water, excessive sweat or perfumes as stains from these cannot be removed from suede. Lightly spray with a suede protector to help keep it from getting too dirty.

           

          Although we provide a 3 year warranty, FreeBird of California cannot take responsibility for damage your leather goods has suffered as a result of improper care.
