Cleaning & maintaining your leather apron
We understand the value of your leather apron, and we want to ensure it remains as stunning and long-lasting as the day you first put it on. Proper care is essential to preserve the look, flexibility, and durability of your apron, allowing you to continue using it for years to come.
Our leather aprons are not only supple and light to wear, but they are also treated with a waterproof coating that enriches the leather's color and gives it a subtle shine. This impregnated coating is permanent and ensures that liquids and dirt merely rest on the surface, making the aprons exceptionally easy to clean and maintain.
Your Leather Apron Over the Years
As you wear your new leather apron, its appearance and character will evolve. The apron will soften up and mold to the shape of your body, gaining more character day by day until it truly becomes your personalized apron.
Store Your Leather Apron
After a productive day of using your apron, it is best to store it by hanging it on a hook. This not only showcases the apron as an art piece in your kitchen, bar, atelier, or workplace but also maintains its natural shape and prevents folding lines. If you're taking the apron on a journey, roll it from the bottom to the top to avoid folding lines. In case folding lines do appear, they will naturally come out over time. Alternatively, you can gently iron the backside of the leather to remove the folding lines.
Cleaning Your Leather Apron
Thanks to its unique impregnated coating, our aprons are effortless to clean. Food stains, fat, wine, coffee, or dirt can easily be removed with a lukewarm cloth and a natural soap. Ordinary shampoo for your hair works well as a natural soap for cleaning.
When cleaning, ensure to clean the entire surface of the apron rather than spot cleaning. Avoid using any hard chemicals like saddle soap, cleaning solvents, oils, furniture polishes, varnishes, abrasive cleaners, detergents, or ammonia on the leather apron, as these can dissolve the protective coating, causing the leather to become sticky and cracked.
Keep the leather apron from getting soaking wet and refrain from putting it in the washing machine. In case the leather gets wet, allow it to dry naturally at room temperature. Avoid using heat sources to dry the leather faster, as it may cause the leather to dry out.
Maintenance of your Leather Apron
We recommend treating your leather apron with a natural-based leather conditioner to keep it moist, supple, and protected. Gently apply the leather conditioner once a month or after thorough cleaning using a cloth or sponge. Leave it on for 15 minutes to allow the leather to soak up the conditioner, then gently wipe the apron with a clean cloth. This regular maintenance will ensure that your leather apron remains well-protected and ready for another day of reliable service!
