    Care and Cleaning

    Only use a leather specialist for cleaning leather. If leather gets wet, dry away from a direct source of heat. If a water mark remains try rubbing the leather with a scrap of leather to remove the mark. Wear scarves to avoid oil stains on the neck edges of leather garments. Oil stains on leather will lighten with time. For badly stained leather consult with a leather dry cleaning specialist. Spray finished leather garments and accessories with leather protector. Tears in leather cannot be stitched back together. Instead, insert an oval of scrap leather beneath the hole and use rubber cement to hold it in place.
