nubuck effect that creates a nice color contrast between the low and the high points of the article.
- Keep furniture dust and dirt free. Remove dust often with a vacuum cleaner or a soft suede brush. Deal
with spills and soil gently and quickly. Do not rub or scrub. Use a clean cloth or sponge. If necessary, use
clean distilled water only and let dry naturally. When dry, rub gently with a soft suede brush. Many stains
will tend to vanish, if not immediately after a few days. Some darkening can be expected due to the nubuck
nature of the product.
- The rustic look of the leather will include some naturally occurring markings such as healed scars, fat
wrinkles, stretch marks, and insect bites—these are not defects, but part of the natural beauty.
- Some color fading may occur if the leather is exposed to direct, intense light and heat.
