How to care for your Angus Barrett Leather Goods
Angus always says the best thing for your new leather product is use! This is because use helps to loosen the fibres in the leather and it brings out the embedded oils, which in turn conditions the surface of the leather. Every product that comes out of our workshop has been oiled and conditioned so that it is ready to use and in fact, we recommend that you do not apply any more oil to our products because you can over-oil leather. If one of our products does get to a point where it is starting to become dry, we recommend applying a good quality, surface leather dressing, like our Angus Barrett Leather Dressing.
Benefits of applying a quality leather dressing:
• helps keep the leather fibres soft and flexible
• reduces friction of the fibres
• helps to repel water
• helps to protects the surface from stains
• protects the leather from cracking
• deepens the colour and enhances the patina
Nearly every leather product that is dispatched from our store is conditioned with our Angus Barrett Leather Dressing, with the exception of some of our products made from more finished leathers, like the Annabella Tote Bag and Toiletry Bags. This is the dressing Angus uses and recommends for all his saddlery products. It is made in Australia and to Angus’s specifications. To apply the dressing, you simply place a small amount on your fingers and massage it into the leather. You may wish to test it on an inconspicuous area first.
If you have any queries about how to care for your new leather goods, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’re always so happy to hear from our customers!
