How to care for and repair new full-grain leather (nappa):
Depending on how soiled the leather is, it should be cleaned with either our Mild or Strong Leather Cleaner. After every use of the cleaner, the leather should then be treated every 3 - 6 months with our Leather Protector. The Leather Protector is ideal for nappa leather. It protects the leather from fading, drying and scratches. Treating the leather in regular terms, it will stay nice much longer.
