Suede

A type of velvety leather that has been brushed or otherwise napped for a soft, supple hand. It is commonly used for jackets, shoes, handbags, and accessories.

Check Label

We don’t like to give specific cleaning advice for leather and suede as this material has many different options for finishes, which makes it impossible for us to know which type you’re working with. Our general guideline for leather is as follows:

Not Washable: If a leather item is labeled “not washable” or “dry clean only,” don’t wash or spot treat it. Trust us.

Washable: We have successfully washed many leather items labeled “washable” as well as most non-leather items with leather trim: patches, collars, zip pulls, and binding. Simply test the leather item before you wash it. Look for discoloration, spots, or other changes once the area has dried.

Leather trim: We have successfully washed many leather trim items labeled “dry clean” or “dry clean only.” Most leather trim is made from “garment washed” leather. This type of leather has already been washed during the production stage, which means it should now be washable as part of the garment.

Freshen

If needed, steam to remove wrinkles. Never iron, as ironing will crush or flatten the nap.

To freshen between wearings, spritz with Fabric Fresh Classic.

Store

Always store items clean. We recommend storing in a breathable cotton Storage Bag to protect items from bugs.
Storing in plastic encourages yellowing and can trap mildew-causing moisture, a prime environment for bugs.
