What type of leather do I have?
There are a couple of tests you can perform to determine what leather you have. A detailed discussion of leather identification is found on our
Leather Identification Manual.
How should I care for my leather?
All leather types should be cleaned with a neutral, water-based cleaner and properly protected every 6 months.
Body contact areas should be maintained more frequently because of the constant wear and tear.
Most leather types can be cleaned with Leather World Leather Cleaner and need to be protected with Leather World Protection Cream.
Can I repair burns, tears or holes?
Leather World offers individual repair items as well as kits that can be used to repair rips, holes and burns in leather.
For detailed repair instructions, please go to our Leather Repair Manual.
Can I change the color of my leather?
In most cases, yes. But we do not recommend recoloring nubuck/suede, wax or oil leathers.
On aniline leather you can change the color of your leather as long as you are taking it to a darker color within the same family.
For top-coated or pigmented leathers you can change the color to any color you wish. For more information, look at our Leather Dyeing Manual.
