The fact that you’ve chosen Toledo leather for your Gazzda product says something about you. It says you appreciate quality and a classic look. It says you have an eye for the finer things in life. It also says that your living space has just gotten a little more awesome.
We specially selected Toledo leather for the products below. And one look at it tells you why. Its corrected-grain surface is durable and flexible. Its unique texture is a playground for the fingertips. And the soft, pliable feel will last a lifetime. But, like all good things, Toledo needs some love and care to stay looking its best.
Use and care
Try to keep your product away from direct sunlight or heaters, because the leather might dry out, become brittle, or crack easier.
Protect the leather from surfaces or items that are abrasive, sharp, wet or rough.
To keep your product in top shape, apply a neutral leather conditioner every 6-12 months. Read the instructions supplied, as these vary per conditioner.
Gently remove dust particles with a soft, dry, cotton cloth.
If you spill water-soluble liquids (coffee, tea, milk, etc.) on the leather, dab them immediately with a soft, clean, cotton, white cloth or absorbent paper. Next, rub the stain gently from the outside towards the centre, using a soft, clean, white, cotton cloth dampened with lukewarm water. Leave the surface to dry.
If you spill greasy substances (oil, chocolate, ketchup, etc.), dab them carefully with absorbent paper to prevent them from penetrating the pores of the leather. Then, use lather or soapsuds of a neutral and natural soap, mixed with cool water. With a clean, soft, cloth apply only the lather (not the water) on the leather and rub gently in a circular motion. Wipe dry with a dry, soft, clean, cotton cloth. Do not soak the leather.
Do not use chemical soaps or other agents. They can remove the leather’s natural oils, which preserve the material, so it might dry out easier and crack.
Do not use regular soaps or detergents to clean the leather. Only use special leather-cleaning detergents, and test on a small, less visible area to ensure that the colour isn’t affected.
