This leather is in a family by itself. It needs special products to care for it and you can't use just any products or you will ruin the leather feel and color. The cleaning process is somewhat different than the aniline and protected leathers. This leather is extremely absorbent and will wet immediately. This leather needs to be dried quickly upon wetting. This leather also needs to be brushed after the cleaning process. We offer a Nubuck kit which includes a cleaner, softener, protector and cloth to brush afterwards.
