Leather is a natural product, it’s has individual characteristics which make each sofa unique.

Leather will always bare the marks of its natural origin, which can include shading variations, such as defects, Scratches and wrinkles. These markings should not be viewed as defects, but as confirmation that you have purchased genuine leather and not an imitation.

Before your furniture leaves the factory, it is given a final inspection prior to secure wrapping for distribution to one of our warehouses.

Due to the tight and secure wrapping to minimize movement during transit, when unwrapped, your sofa may appear a little “distressed”, this is entirely normal, and the illustrations below show how to rectify this in 3 steps:

Step 1: With clean movements bring the back cushions of the sofa back to original shape

Step 2: Spread the leather evenly cross the seat cushion with the palms of your hands

Step 3: Give the arm pads a good plump and then straighten them

Human perspiration attacks the finish on leather and it must be removed weekly, wipe over the areas that you bear arms and hands plus your head with a damp cloth, this also applies to areas rubbed by pets.

Prolonged contact with non-colour fast garments such as denim should be avoided where light colored leathers are concerned as such dyes can migrate and “bleed” into the surface sealant of the leather. This is not a manufacturing defect. Regular use of cleaning and protection creams can help minimize the like hood of this happening.

To reduce the incidence of unsightly creases, the leather needs “feeding”, this we advise three times a year:

First time:             Before the central heating is turned on

Second time:       Midwinter

Third time:           Midsummer

If a chair is continually used all day, treat with conditioner more often, a little conditioner often is much better than overfeeding occasionally.
