Natural leather is obtained from animal skin products and non-vegetable and vegetal materials through a series of physical and chemical processes. Genuine leather, like nubuck or vegan leather, is relatively resistant to many bacteria, physical factors, and weather conditions. A significant feature of natural leather is the passage of some airflow. In contrast, synthetic leathers, like PU leather, prevent air penetration.

If you use a synthetic or genuine leather product and don't take care of it, you can't count on its polish and beauty forever. Therefore, it is necessary to know how to take care of leather. It is possible to use leathercraft for many years if it is made of high-quality genuine leather and if you know how to protect it.

Dry cleaning is always recommended as the first step. Cleaning products such as foam are used when there is a lot of dirt or pollution. Bags and shoes must first be cleaned and then waterproofed. There are two types of leather cleaning: dry cleaning and liquid cleaning. First, they should be cleaned with a dry method, with a towel and brushes; if they are not thoroughly cleaned, use a towel or a sponge and use liquid soap products.
