Italian Vegetable tanned Buttero leather is a unique leather that develops a beautiful patina over time. As it has no coating or finish applied, it can scratch easily. Therefore, it's important to handle and store it with care to maintain its appearance.
Although not necessary, Buttero leather can be polished using a horse hair brush to keep it looking its best. If the leather becomes dry, a natural oil such as olive, neatsfoot, or mink can be used to condition it. It's important to use these oils sparingly, as veg tan leather easily absorbs liquids, and over-conditioning the leather can affect its appearance and texture.
To care for your Buttero leather item, avoid exposing it to water, direct sunlight, and heat sources. If it gets wet, let it naturally dry in gentle sunlight. For stains, use a damp cotton cloth to gently rub the surface and dry it in the sun or with a blower. When not in use, store your item in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat source.
