Naturally, the leather upholstery needs special care both during the periodic cleaning process and the daily use. In the first months after the purchase, slight creases may appear in the surface. This is due to the normal settling of the leather.

Any superficial irregularity such as wrinkles, stretch marks, veins, differences in grain or color, are not defects but evidence of a natural origin of the product, which embellishes each sofa making it unique and different from any other.

The models in light leather are even more delicate than others. Therefore, avoid the contact and/or the rubbing with clothing that may lose color, such as jeans, because it can be absorbed by the leather and stain it. Never leave newspapers in contact with the covering, because the ink can ruin it.
