REVIVE: An Easy Guide to Caring for Leather Furniture
Leather is a long-lasting material that, if well-maintained, gets better with age and patinates gracefully over time. The process of treating leather furniture can be a therapeutic act in itself, an opportunity to work with your hands and return to tactility.
Prepare the leather surface with a clean cloth and remove accumulated dirt or dust.
Apply a small amount of leather conditioner or balsam. Rub the conditioner into the leather with a cloth or by hand. We recommend using natural-based products that provide water resistance.
Let the conditioner set for 15 min and wipe the excess off.
To test your newly-conditioned leather, apply a few drops of water with your fingers. If the oil has been applied correctly, the beads of water should sit atop the leather without absorbing into it. Be mindful to apply a very small amount of water, so as not to darken the leather.
