The Toledo Collection has not been specifically treated for water repellency. Thus, the leather may temporarily darken when wet, returning to its original tone once completely dry. The waxed surface may assist in staving off some dirt. With continued use, a lovely shine or patina will develop, only enhancing the beauty of this leather.
To clean, a soft cotton cloth slightly dampened with distilled water (sodium-free seltzer water may be substituted) and a mild bar soap, applied in a circular motion. Do not saturate with water and avoid using detergents, solvents or abrasive materials to clean.
This collection requires no creams, polishes or leather conditioning products to maintain its beauty.
