Leather

Description

The use of leather for clothes in prehistory when it was already an important symbol, going beyond its initial function to protect against the cold. Throughout history, leather was attributed the values of virility and strength. Many on-trend leather tops actually form part of the technical and military wardrobe: bomber jacket, aviator jacket... Then it was also adopted by the music realm with the advent of rock 'n' roll.

The appearance of leather varies depending on the animal from which the hide is obtained, the quality of the hide or the tanning technique (process which makes the leather more durable). Vegetal tanning, for example, results in a leather with a more uneven and matte appearance than chrome-tanned leather generally used for jackets. Sanding will give a suede or nubuck leather. It is a high-quality material which requires numerous processes and specialised know-how.

  • Suede goatskin : it comes from the inside of the goat's skin. This leather has the particularity of being relatively smooth. The velvet is brushed to give it a fluffy aspect which is very pleasant to wear.

  • Grained leather : Its grained appearance is the result of mechanical stress, friction or pressure, which is intended to modify the relief of the skin.

  • Smooth leather : This type of leather includes all leathers where the grain is on the upper side of the skin.

  • Split leather : This is leather in its natural state, very resistant and thicker, it has the particularity of having irregularities on its surface which gives it a rougher appearance. The split skin leather is the part from the skin's flesh side.

  • Sheepskin : it is a leather where the wool of the animal has been kept on the hide to garnish the inside of the garment. The leather, which is on the outside, is sanded, which gives it an oily and downy appearance.

Care

Leather is sensitive to environmental elements (water, dust, sun) and should be regularly cared to increase its lifespan. For shoes and sheepskin jacket, the first thing to do is waterproofing to avoid unsightly stains left by bad weather, for example. For suede goatskin jackets, we advise you to test your waterproofing product on a hidden surface of the jacket, to wait 20 to 30 minutes and see how the product reacts with the leather. Whichever waterproofing product you use, you have to follow the application instructions. You can repeat the operation a maximum of 2 to 3 times a year.

Then, regular care varies depending on the type of garment. For a leather jacket, machine-washing is not an option. If the leather is stained, bring the piece to a leather specialist. Regularly dust the leather with a soft cloth to avoid dust becoming embedded if the jacket is not used. You can nourish the leather with specialized milks. Baby skin milk also works well, but only if it is free of perfume and colouring agents. Whichever product you use, do a test on a hidden part of the leather and wait 24 hours to see how the leather reacts.

It should be noted that waxes and milks should not be used for suede leather. Simply remove dust with a soft brush.

When you are not using your jacket, hang it on a wide hanger to avoid deforming the shape and leave it in the fresh air or in a breathable cover (not in plastic).

As for shoes, we strongly recommend placing shoe trees inside to maintain the original shape. Simply use a soft cloth (slightly wet if there are stains) to remove the dust. Then, a nourishing milk for leather (once a week is enough) will prevent drying and cracking. Finish with a brush to shine. Polishing is not necessary as it tends to prevent the leather from breathing and dries it out in the long term. If you still want to do so, use a very small knob of polish!

For suede or nubuck shoes, use a simple brush (in brass for suede, in crêpe for nubuck) to remove dust and a special cleaner if there are stains.

If your sheepskin jacket is stained, take it to a specialist who will be able to clean it with the right products. As for the wool, it can be cleaned with a sponge soaked in lather and dried with a towel.
