All of our products are made with genuine leather and/or hair on cowhide. Each leather hide varies in weight, texture, colors/dyes, and various embossed or hand tooled patterns. Over time, ALL hair on cowhide WILL shed! This is to be expected with any hair on cowhide item and there are several factors that can lead to this happening depending on the type of cowhide, how the hide is tanned and finished and how you treat it. To help prevent hair loss, limit friction that would rub on any hair service or scratch any tooled or embossed leather. We do not recommend putting any type of fixative on the hide to prevent shedding, that will more than likely ruin the cowhide. Some embossed pre-dyed leathers can fade over time if left in the direct sun for long periods of time. Extended exposure to sunlight or florescent lights can fade or discolor dyes used on the hand tooled items.
To clean your hair on cowhide item, use a mild soap and damp cloth. NEVER completely submerge cowhide or leather products into water. All the leather we use will have a protectant seal or finish, but this will NOT prevent damage due to damp or harsh conditions. You can lightly vacuum hair on cowhide with a soft brush attachment. We use a product call "Renapur" along with a very soft sponge for our tooled and dyed items. The use of other oils & cleaners could stain, lighten or completely strip dyes and paint from finished products. Do not scrub over or over saturate any of the leathers as that will lead to dryness and cracking. We suggest using proper leather care for all hair on cowhide and tooled leather items to help increase the lifespan of your purchase.
