Protection against heat: Do not place the leather strap next to heat sources like open fires, radiators and others.
Protection against light: Avoid leaving the strap exposed to strong direct light, sunlight or a powerful lamp over a long period as this can affect the surface of the leather strap.
Protection against water: Avoid contact with water and dampness to prevent discoloration and deformation.
Chemical products: Do not forget that leather is permeable.Therefore avoid contact with greasy substances and cosmetic products.
Cleaning: Rub with a damp cloth and if necessary some soft soap. This method is especially suitable for straps made of smooth or grained leather. Even if the leather is very dry, make sure that it does not absorb too much liquid.
Brushing: Use a soft brush (for example a nail-brush). This method is recommended for nubuck types of leather or delicate straps. It will remove the dirt and refresh the surface fibres.
