  • Leather Wax
  • Cloth

※Avoid using pile fabrics or any other kind of loose fabric that can get caught on the zippers. We recommend a natural material such as cotton that is soft and won't scratch the leather.

How To Care For Your Leather

1.Wipe Off Dust

First, take a dry cloth and wipe gently to remove all traces of dust off the leather.
It is also important to pay attention to the seams stitchings as it is more prone to dust accumulation.

2. Take The Wax To The Cloth

Apply a small amount of wax to a clean piece of a soft cloth. (about the size of a rice grain) Remember not to use too much at once, take a little at a time depending on the size of the product.

3. Spread The Wax

Apply wax starting with a small area that is not obvious. Slowly spread out the wax by massaging the leather in a circular motion until you have covered all surfaces. Over applying wax and rubbing may lead to wrinkles, so the key is to apply it thinly and quickly.

※Depending on the type of leather, applying too much wax may cause the color to fade. We recommend that you try on an indistinct area before using it for the first time.

4. Glazing

Once you have finished step 3, give the leather one last rub with your thumb but this time with a little more force. Use the waxed area of the cloth and give it a nice rub until the whole area is shiny, and you’re done!

Real leather doesn't deteriorate over time, instead, it continues to change.
And if well taken care of, the leather will continue to take on a beautiful form in the years to come.
So try it out during your free time or when you’re in the mood.
