LEATHER CARE

Why care?
Once a leather item is in use microscopic cracks and splits (invisible to the naked eye) occur in the leather. These cracks provide an entry site for leathers worst enemies: water, dirt, grime, grease and salt from sweat which is then able to work its way into the interlinking fibres comprising the corium. The collagen and protein fibres are damaged and weakened by the presence of such dirt and grime eventually causing unrepairable cracks and splits. These factors along with heat can contribute to drying, cracking and hardening of the leather. However with regular care and maintenance including cleaning and conditioning this can be avoided. If leather is properly looked after it can remain functional, supple and in good condition for many years, as well as retaining its value.

If you would like advice on how to care for your leather riding products please call in and talk to a member of staff who will be able to talk you about different product options and how to use them.
