Easy care & occasional washing
Simply wipe away spills and dirt — we find baby wipes do it best. To minimise stains act fast, keep fingers light and try not to rub. To keep your leather soft and supple, massage and nourish with a natural, fragrance-free moisturiser — anything you use on your own skin will do.
Any little marks, variations or scratches are not faults, but honest signs of natural leather. Regular wear and care will only improve the look and feel of each piece, creating a supple second skin for your child. Changes in colour and texture are entirely natural in leather; signs of wear make the garment unique — just like your child's adventures.
When your garment does need a wash
We recommend machine washing on a cold, gentle wool cycle, using a non-biological wool and silk liquid detergent. Simply zip up, turn inside out and wash separately. After washing, gently reshape while still wet and dry flat on a rack or breathable surface, away from heat and direct sun. Do not tumble dry. If leather becomes stiff, just massage and moisturise until it's supple again.

Remove from the machine, wrap in a towel, lightly press then gently reshape. To dry, lay flat on a towel and place on a breathable surface - like a rack - away from heat and direct sun. Do not tumble dry. If leather becomes stiff, just massage and moisturise until it’s supple again.
If it needs ironing, cool iron through a dry cloth. Don’t overdo it, unless you want a shiny effect. To reshape after extensive wear, iron with cool iron on reverse.
Every now and then we recommend treating your garment with a natural and fragrance-free leather cream conditioner to keep it nourished and supple. Oil, grease and coloured foods like tomato sauce, beets and ink are nearly impossible to remove and also very hard to keep out of little hands, so please don't worry — once wiped away the remaining traces only add to your garment's unique look. Before using any product, always test on a small, non-visible area first - such as the inside leg. It's better to apply cream using a soft cloth rather than directly onto the leather.
Although our leather is not shy of puddles, it’s not waterproof. So, if it is really wet outside, we'd suggest a different outfit. If your leather does get wet, don’t worry. Simply blot with a paper towel and allow to dry naturally. Stuffing it with paper towels will help it dry faster and keep its shape. Remember to never leave in direct heat or sunlight to dry - it might start to crack the leather.
