Nappa Leather maintenance

Submitted by Donna on 8/28/05 at 11:50 AM. ( )

Does anyone know how to care for and maintain untreated nappa leather? I have a handbag made of it and have read conflicting info on how to cure, maintain, etc...
Any suggestions?

Just like any fine leather

Follow the directions on the garment if you have it, but it can be wiped clean with a warm damp cloth. It needs to be oiled occasionally with a quality leather oil with lanolin to keep it soft and supple. And as the name infers, "treat it with kid gloves".
