Hulduköttr always uses first class vegetal tanned leather, It must require a different care process for its usage and maintenance, some different from other sources of industrial origin (chrome tanned leather) than other skins you might be familiar with. For that reason,we would explain briefly some concepts first:
What is vegetal tanned leather?
To minimize this process, the tip is covering the piece when not in use , and keep it away from sunlight, as well as spotlights and other heavy lights. On the other hand, if you wish to darken it, leave it in the sun during a few hours and let it do its thing.
2. If your leather becomes wet. Although Hulduköttr's works are consigned with a waterproof lotion, water soaking is not appropriate. There's risk to happen anyway, specially in items for an outdoors usage, such as purses, pouches, wristbands, etc. If leather becomes wet, don't be alarmed. As we said before, our works are made with veg tanned leather. When this kind of leather gets wet in abundancy, it tends to be darken or harden, causing stains and failures. Because of that, don't force to dry it if you want to preserve it in a good mood. Let it dry on its own, after its dry clean with saddle soap and apply leather dressing. Never use hair-dryers and such things and never rub with a towel, it could damage or discolour your leather.
In case any piece gets damaged or discolours, you cand send us back and we will do our best to remove damages, sometimes this is a impossible mission, but we could palliate it.
