Just as much as we all love our leather it’s equally important to learn how to take care of the classics. Unlike other fabrics both synthetic leather and genuine leather needs proper handing for a long wardrobe life. We all know to keep our leather away from rain but in case if you get them wet hang it out to air dry. Do not use a hair dryer or any sort of heat as it may result in losing the garment original shape and texture. Always store your leather garments on a padded hanger and avoid covering them up with plastic bags. Especially genuine leather jackets or any garment need to breath to discourage mold and mildew growth. Also when styling keep your hairspray and perfume away from your leathers as it may fade the original color of your garment. Last but not least get your leather cleaned on a regular basis by professional dry cleaners.
