All of our Handcrafted Leather Products are made in Wilmington, NC. Our small family operation designs and manufactures our products to be beautiful, useful and last a lifetime. With very little care, your leather items will improve with use which helps add your mark on it. Generations to follow will treasure the worn and aged items they are fortunate to inherit. See the following tips to assure your leather items are kept in the best condition.
Leather Care Tips
Tip #1 - Most scuffs and scratches can be rubbed away with your fingers due to the natural oils within the leather. If your product has scuffs and scratches that are deep, hide rejuvenator or leather conditioner will do the job. We recommend Dr. Jackson's Hide Rejuvenator which can be found at any Tandy Leather store.
Tip #2 - If initially your wallet is stiff and pockets or openings are tight, please allow a few weeks for the leather to break in to the proper fit. Our products wear in, not out, so we purposefully craft them to a size that allows them to break in and meet our specifications.
Tip #3 - If your leather gets wet, simply wipe off as much moisture as you can and let it dry slowly. We don't advise drying with a hair dryer, direct heat or fan. This can change the shape of the leather along with the chemical structure applied in tanning.
Tip #4 - If your leather needs to be cleaned, simply wipe it off with a wet rag not adding any soaps or additional chemicals to the leather.
Tip #5 - If your leather gets too dry it can crack, this is similar to how your skin cracks when moisture and oils are removed. To maintain a long life of your product, occasionally use hide rejuvenator or leather conditioners as needed. Again, we recommend Dr. Jackson's Hide Rejuvenator.
