How to store leather articles!?

 What is the best way to store your precious leathers when the seasons change? Although it may be tempting just to toss the winter boots to the back of the closet and hang the leather jacket on the nearest hook, a little time and thought now will ensure your leather attire will be refreshed and ready when next the wind blows cold and the snow flies. You have invested much in your leather wardrobe, and we gathered some wise advice to keep that investment returning dividends to you for many years into the future.

 Inspect for Damage and Arrange for Repairs

 Take a close look at your boots and shoes. Is all hardware sound and attached properly? Check for frayed laces and weakening seams. Heels and soles can be replaced or repaired while buckles, eyelets and other metal parts can be polished or restored. Loose stitching and broken down counters should be assessed by a competent leather repair professional and appropriate fixes made. Loose or missing buttons should be reattached and zippers and other fasteners checked for smooth operation.

 Cleaning and Conditioning

 Once your items have been repaired, take the time to properly clean and condition them before storing. We recommend all our products for such task, offering a range that includes cleaners and conditioners that we have added in time to our online leather care store.

For smooth leathers, Famaco, Saphir or Moneysworth & Best products are your best option to clean and condition with natural ingredients only. Just an example: Famaco Saddle Soap - Packed in a traditional twist jar, use this quality saddle soap with a dampened sponge or brush to apply on dirty and distressed leather, polishing afterwards with a soft cloth to reveal a refreshed surface and softened feel.

Seriously abused or soiled articles can be thoroughly cleaned with Leather Cleaning Lotion by Famaco for deep-down grime removal. All kinds of leathers respond to this excellent cleaner, including smooth and napped leathers like nubuck and suede, and also blocked and exotic leathers. Famaco also has a Suede and Nubuck Cleaner specially formulated to treat not only napped leathers but also fabrics and other materials used for apparel, footwear and hats.

 After cleaning, use Creme Delicate - Leather Conditioner to nourish and condition smooth leathers. This rich formulation does not contain any waxes or silicone, allowing leather to breathe. Even hard working and playing footwear that has endured water and salt damage will respond well to this conditioner, revitalizing leathers that may have seemed past repair.
