Top grain cowhide leather comes from an original cowhide skin after a precise splitting process. It is a high-quality product produced from the hide but the outermost layer is sanded off so that any imperfection or irregularities are removed.
It is high-grade genuine leather and naturally soft, anti-scratch and durable even years later. After polishing, oiling and waxing finish, the cowhide shines more vintage and nobly.The more you use, the more retrospective it will be.That's also the reason why it is chosen as advanced material by brand manufacturers. It may have natural odor at first, but the smell will fade away after a couple days' airing out.
How to Care for Top-Grain Leather
You can prolong the life of your top-grain leather products by maintaining them properly. Always store the item in a cool and dry place. If it gets wet or you spill something on it, wipe it dry using a soft clean cloth. Dry the item in a cool dry place, and never use heat to dry it as the leather may crack from overdrying. Condition the leather with a high-quality leather conditioner at least twice a year. You may need to clean dirty leather with a high-quality leather soap at times.
Avoid storing the leather in a plastic cover as this may cause mold to grow. To remove mold, use a soft clean cloth dipped in a solution of isopropyl alcohol mixed with water in equal proportions.
