- What is Eco-Leather?
The Eco-Leather I buy from Organic Leather is described on their website as follows: “The hides we work with for our eco leather come from South America, where the majority of the cows are organic by nature. Although they may not be certified, the cattle are free-range, grass-fed animals which roam on huge expanses of pasture land year round. The pre-tanning is done in South America using farm-bred mimosa and then finished using plant-based dyes in our U.S. factory, which is held to some of the most stringent environmental laws in the world. Our eco leather offers one the best selections of eco-colors found anywhere and is 99% free of heavy metals and chemicals.”
- How do I take care of leather?
Leather will last much longer if properly cleaned and conditioned. I like Leather Amore by Bee Natural Leathercare (made in the U.S.A. yay!). It makes scratched, lackluster leather deep and shiny and beautiful again — cleans, conditions, softens, provides soil resistance, retards waterspotting, and buffs. When you think about caring for leather, you need to take all those aspects into consideration.
