The nature of these materials is quite hard wearing but common sense must be taken to ensure your item is well maintained. Please note that due to the natural qualities of the materials used in all SISKEN products there may be variations in colour, feel and surface texture. These are not considered flaws, but part of the unique beauty that are these natural materials.
To keep your SISKEN piece buttery soft and supple, we recommend that you use a good quality leather cream or conditioner to further nourish the leather. This should also help to protect from extensive rubbing and/or scratches. When you are not using your SISKEN piece, ensure it is stored in the complimentary dust bag included when purchasing. This will also protect the leather from dust mites and add the longevity of your piece.
It is recommended that when purchasing a SISKEN piece in the lighter colour, treat the leather with a good quality leather protector (following the instructions on your chosen product). Please note that light colours may mark easily, ensure that pens and oils are kept away from your purchase. To clean any marks on the leather, lightly sponge the affected area with a week solution of Tana leather shampoo. Sponging the entire panel to avoid watermarks. Do not rub excessively. To clean any marks on the fabric lining, lightly sponge the affected area with a week solution of wool wash.
All of SISKENs products are made from high quality genuine milling leather. The tanning process used to produce milling leather, intensifies the natural fine lines and textures that already exist within each individual hide. This gives each SISKEN product a beautiful vintage feeling leather that is intended to wear and further soften with age and use.
We recommend for any SISKEN piece that features an external detail of fabric within in the design, to treat this fabric with a good quality scotch guard. Please follow the application instructions on your chosen product.
