Store leather garments on padded hangers and cover with a plain bed sheet or a cloth bag. Avoid plastic bags, as they don’t allow garments to breathe, hence promoting mould and mildew
If a leather garment gets wet, hang it to dry away from heat. Putting it in a dryer or near a heating vent could cause it to shrink and lose its shape.
Avoid letting a leather garment touch your skin in areas where it’s likely to come in contact with oils from your body and hair. Similarly, don’t let perfume or hairspray get on your leather clothes. They are hard to remove and the process of removing them can take the colour out of the clothing.
If you get a stain on a garment, don’t try to remove it yourself unless a leather-cleaning professional has advised you on how to.
Clean leather regularly.
