Natural wax and oils are applied to the leather when it is produced. The wax or oil will rise to the surface occasionally appearing as a white bloom. When this happens rub the leather with a soft cloth to feed the wax back into the leather and therefore nourishing it.
Ideally, English Bridle leather needs to be kept hydrated. This can be done by applying a small amount of Sedgwick Leather Care Balm, which is readily available to buy online. This only needs to be done occasionally.
If any liquids or dirt spills onto the surface, wipe the leather straight away with a clean soft cloth. Avoid, however, using anything too harsh as it will mark the surface.
Direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time will bleach the surface. It will darken again over time but to avoid the harsh stripping of colour, it is advisable not to leave your English Bridle leather product in direct sunlight.
Avoid bringing the belt (or other product) into contact with sharp edges, as the surface will scratch. However, part of the beauty of English Bridle leather is that it will take on the characteristics of your daily wear, showcasing the item’s story.
The vegetable tanned leather will naturally change in appearance over time and will develop a patina unique to you. Like with the scratching, this is one of the beauties of this natural product.
