Our Italian Patent Calf Leather is produced on soft calf skins and finished with a coating to give it a rich, glossy and luxurious appearance.
Protected by a few layers of coating, patent leather is easiest to clean! All you need is a dry cloth to polish the surface of the product and polish the hardware. Make sure to protect your Patent Leather products from any heat exposure as to not damage the original look of the coating.
Lighter colour patent leather is prone to absorbing foreign dyes and we therefore discourage prolonged contact with darker items of clothing, and/or ‘loose’ dyes.
For a long product life, we recommend avoiding contact with rough and/or abrasive surfaces. Where necessary, we strongly recommend using a specialist cleaning service. In case of tougher marks we discourage the use of solvents and excessive or prolonged rubbing, as this could damage the product. Between uses, we recommend storing your BY FAR product in its original dustbag.
