We want you to have confidence in the item you have purchased from Leather Madness. We are going to explain some of the different types of leather we usein our merchandise. Also we will offer some advice of how to care for your leatherproduct.
Cowhide leather – will maintain its integrity, taking on the shape of the wearer, making it more comfortable with everyday use. This affordable, functional leather offers fashion, value and endless colors and style. It is proven to have robust resistance against molting and ageing.
Lambskin leather – is much softer, smoother than cowhide and as durable. Lambskin is lighter and is more comfortable to wear. Lambskin drapes well, it flows and has good movement. It’s classy for a more fashionable look.
Sheepskin leather – Sheepskin is the warmest lightweight leather you can buy. That’s why it’s used for a wide variety of cold-weather apparel including jackets,boots, hats and gloves. Sheepskin provides a soft yet resilient surface that makes it ideal clothing.
Aniline leather retains the hide’s natural surface with the ‘grain’, i.e. visible pores,scars etc. of the complete original animal’s skin structure.
You will find that we at Leather Madness use “Full Grain” leather. This means the quality of the leather is clear, supple and clean. Evidence of this can also be found in the consistency of the color that has the highest yield of over 90% and the surface is smoothest.
Caring for Leather
Proper maintenance is the key to make it supple at all times, and increase its durability. Dust and dirt accumulated in leather jackets makes them brittle overtime, which you do not want to happen with your expensive jacket. Therefore, to avoid such a case, follow the simple leather care instructions indicated below.
• Keep your Jacket in a cool and well-ventilated area. Except for occasional drying, to protect it from getting direct sunlight exposure.
• Store your jacket in cloth bags, not polythene bags. This promotes aircirculation and helps in keeping the leather moist.
• If rain spots appear, you should be able to remove them with a dry cloth. If your jacket is semi-aniline or pigmented, you can use a damp cloth or some leather conditioner.
