Any variations in the colour and grain are a result of the natural characteristics of the leather. Keep the product dry and avoid contact with damp or wet surfaces. Limit the exposure to direct heat or sunlight. To clean the product, just wipe it with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use any chemical cleaners to care for the product. Optional care, but not essential: With a soft brush, a colourless cream can be applied regularly to leather areas
