Leather straps

  • Protection against heat
    Do not place the leather strap next to heat sources like open fires, radiators and others.
  • Protection against light
    Avoid leaving the strap exposed to strong direct light, sunlight or a powerful lamp over a long period as this can affect the surface of the leather strap.
  • Protection against water
    Avoid contact with water and dampness to prevent discoloration and deformation.
  • Chemical products
    Do not forget that leather is permeable. Therefore, avoid contact with greasy substances and cosmetic products.
  • Drying a wet strap
    For a wet or damp strap to dry, leave it at normal room temperature, preferably even in a cool place. Avoid using a strong heat.
  • Cleaning
    For leather and delicate straps, rub with a damp cloth and if necessary some soft soap. This method is especially suitable for straps made of smooth or grained leather.
  • Brushing
    Use a soft brush (for example a nail-brush). This method is recommended for nubuck types of leather or delicate straps. It will remove the dirt and refresh the surface fibres.
