Because it’s the natural skin of an animal, its not unusual for leather to vary in grain or color and to have marks or range scars on the same hide. Think of them not as flaws, but as natural beauty marks.
With proper care, your leather will:
• Resist fading and staining
• Resist cracking and peeling
• Will not stretch out of shape
• Will outlast fabric at least four to one
Fine leather is soft, luxurious and meant to be enjoyed. With the right care, it will improve with age and last for many years. Remember, leather is very durable but not accident or injury proof.
Vacuum or use a clean, white cloth to dust every couple of weeks, so that it stays clean. To clean accumulated dirt use a slightly damp, soft cloth like a chamois or soft sponge to wipe the surface. It is best to use lukewarm distilled water. Before doing this for the first time, test in an inconspicuous area to make sure the leather doesn't absorb the water. Wipe lightly in one direction. Blot with a dry cloth and let air dry naturally. Use only a dry cloth if the leather seems to absorb moisture.
For spills, immediately use a dry cloth to blot and let it air-dry. It’s important to blot the area and not wipe it, as you want to capture all the moisture without spreading it.
For grease stains, blot excess with a clean dry cloth. The spot should gradually disappear into the leather after a short period of time. If it persists, ask a professional leather specialist to clean the leather to avoid any potential damage to the leather itself.
Never use harsh chemicals on your leather. Do not use materials like nail polish remover, soap, cleaning solvents, detergents, or ammonia to clean stains.
Never soak the stain heavily with water. All these methods may actually be more damaging than the stain itself.
Sunlight and Heat
Leather can fade, crack or stiffen when placed close to heat sources. Avoid placing it close to fireplaces or in a spot that is exposed to direct sunlight. The sun is a natural bleaching agent and will lighten or discolor your leather.
Watch out for scratches. As leather can scratch easily, avoid using sharp objects in its proximity. For minor or slight surface scratches use a chamois or clean fingers to gently buff the scratch. Not all scratches have the same depth so this technique may not work on deeper scratches. The friction and heat from the rubbing helps redistribute the wax in the surrounding area to cover the scratch.
Leather can absorb dyes easily, so avoid placing printed materials on it. The ink can transfer and leave stains.
Leather conditioners are meant for occasional use. They contain fats and/or oils that help lubricate leather and replenish the suppleness. Look for a product that will penetrate the strong fibers in leather, but beware of any that include petroleum or mineral oils. While petroleum by-products won't damage your leather immediately, they do over a period of time.

ELEMENTS Fine Home Furnishings Leather
Leather furniture appeals to: Consumers who appreciate soft rich leathers - who recognize and understand that pure aniline leathers provide the same elegance, luxury and value to their homes as vintage silver, silk and linens.
Consumers who appreciate that every piece of ELEMENTS Fine Home Furnishings leather furniture possesses individual character shaped by nature - character that will become richer through the years as it is used and well-cared for by its owner.
Consumers who appreciate the qualities represented by natural color variations, natural markings and the natural patina of fine pure aniline leathers.
What's so special about ELEMENTS Fine Home Furnishing’s aniline leather? The finest leathers are pure anilines - and most ELEMENTS Fine Home Furnishing’s leathers are anilines. Only the top 5% of hides, which are relatively free from gross surface imperfections, can be made into aniline leather. These are full grain; top grain leathers that have been soaked in transparent, non-toxic aniline dye and have no subsequent pigmented finish coats applied. In other words, the color has not been "painted" onto the surface. The aniline dye penetrates the hide with color, allowing the natural grain to show through. A soft, mellow hand, characteristic of ELEMENTS Fine Home Furnishing’s leathers, is the result of tanning done with such minerals as chromium salts.
If it's perfect, it may not be real leather. Anilines have natural markings including healed scars, neck and belly wrinkles, scratches, insect bites and brands that vary from hide to hide in the same way that human fingerprints are unique. Aniline leathers also exhibit natural color variations due to leather's ability to accept dyes differently in various areas of the hide. These markings and color shadings basically distinguish genuine leather from man-made materials like vinyl and from leathers whose "character" is stamped on with heat or pressure. Appreciating differences between hides means appreciating differences on individual items of furniture as well - because no item of furniture can be produced from a single hide.
