By purchasing a pair of boots or an accessory made of elephant leather, you have achieved one of the most valued and precious leathers in the field of exotic leathers. It is also a very demanded leather in the market for its exclusivity. Not everyone can have an elephant item since its sale requires strict controls. Today we will give you some tips to know how to take care of genuine elephant leather. So that your products stay in excellent condition for much longer.
First of all, even though this leather is very resistant, you must bear in mind that you took a fine product. Therefore, you must use it with special care. Never expose this leather to sunlight in an extreme way, as it may lose its color and be affected. You have taken one of the leathers with greater resistance, but that does not mean you should neglect it.
To clean the products of this type of leather you must first verify what type of finish your footwear has. If your product has nubuck finish it should NEVER get wet. You can easily recognize them by their smooth and velvety finish. If your product is of a different finish, you can clean it with a slightly damp cloth, never wet. Wait for the leather to dry and lightly rub with a suede sponge.
Remember that you should NEVER polish this type of leather, as it would lose its natural finish. What you can do for nubuck leather is to apply repellent, for greater care. In the case of other finishes, you can brush them lightly with a scotch fiber to open the pore of the leather.
