Give your sofa a gentle weekly vacuum to remove any dust and debris. Make sure you use a soft attachment and a low setting to avoid any accidental damage.

Steer clear of cleaning products not made especially for leather. Even sturdy leather sofas can be sensitive to substances not made for them. That’s why we offer special care kits to help you look after your leather sofa.

Direct sunlight can cause the colours to fade and cause your sofa to age before its time, so place your sofa in a shaded area to help keep maintain its look for longer
