Caring for Your Vegetable-Tanned Leather
Keep your leather away from heat sources and never blow-dry it. Don't use brushes with synthetic bristles to clean it — only natural bristles should be used. Use oil or conditioner made specifically for leather weekly if the item is used frequently.
Caring for Your Chrome-Tanned Leather
do not get something with oils in it, just something that will protect the surface. Shoe wax works well for chrome tanned leather. An old t-shirt. Any cloth will work for this, but I try to avoid cloth with large fibers (like a towel) that will leave streaks in the drying wax.
Waxed fabric is beautifully imperfect. It will get scratched and distressed but in time
will only get better looking.
You can obtain a distress look naturally or use your hands! Scrunch it, squeeze it and smooth it. Don’t like the look or you have too many distress marks, simply heat with a hair dryer or heat gun and start over.
Do not wash or dry clean your canvas. Spot clean. Do not wash or dry clean your canvas. Spot clean with a very damp rag or even better a stiff bristle lint brush. Avoid prolong extreme heat. If you should get a water spot on your canvas, apply heat from your hair dryer to the area to reset the wax.
