How to care for full grain leather

We believe that the fundamental attribute of a fairly manufactured product is quality and durability. But this also rests on effective material care.

Proper care for full grain leather extends the product life cycle by decades. When full grain leather gets dirty, wet, or you feel dry cracking. Best to grab leather care wax and stick to a handful of ground rules. Wax gives full grain leather luster, resilience and simultaneously impregnates for water resistance.
