“Leatherette”, “waxed leather” or “pull-up leather” are leathers in which the top coat of paint is a colored grease or wax layer. This type of leather is particularly widespread in shoes and bags. In the furniture sector, the term “saddle leather” is used for this type of leather. In the case of fatty leather, the grain has been preserved, whereas in pull-up leathers, the grain has been sanded during production. Characteristic of the leather are a patina look, the slight emergence of traces of scratches and the slight discoloration when rubbed with a moistened rag. The discolouration occurs because the oils and fats used for the surface treatment are colored.
All products should always be tested first for changes in the hidden area! Never apply the product directly to the leather, but rub the cleaner on a sponge or cloth and care first in a soft cloth. To do this, always apply the products in a circular fashion from seam to seam to avoid staining or banding.
