Care of leather
Please note that vegetable tanned leather has an open structure and will change color when exposed to sunlight. Heavy rain showers may create spots on the leather.
It’s important to treat full grain leather with leather conditioner every now and then. Especially living in a warm or humid environment. Leather moisturizer will avoid the leather from drying out and will keep the skin supple.
My advice is to use your products to the fullest every day. I believe that markings created by the sun, rain, dirt, grease and natural wear make your Dutchiz item a unique and personal item. If treated with care your product will age beautifully.
The care of dog collars & leashes
Keeping your Dutchiz leather dog collar in the best condition is easy if you clean it every now and then. Dutchiz products are made of the best saddle leathers and with a little care they can last a lifetime.
To keep your leather dog collar at its best I recommend the following:
- Gently clean with a soft cloth and clean with a leather cleaning product. Afterwards always apply a caring balm or grease.
- If the collar becomes muddy, then clean with a damp soft cloth and allow to dry naturally, stay away from direct heat.
- Remove the collar if your dog is playing rough, swimming or scratching excessively.
- My advise is to not let your dog wear the collar when swimming in the sea. If your dog collar has been in the sea rinse it with tap water and let it dry naturally. Treating it with a caring balm/grease afterwards is always a good idea.
