Calf Hair products should be treated differently from other suede and leather products. Unlike leather which thrives on regular use, Calf Hair will need to be treated with a degree of respect and care!
Keep your calf hair item away from heat and direct sunlight. Due the nature of the material, some shedding of the hair may occur over time. This is a natural characteristic of the material. This can be accelerated through friction or rubbing.
Calf hair can be treated with our Suede and Nubuck Protector, but please be aware this may chance the appearance of the item if uneven or sprayed too close.
The Protector should be sprayed from a minimum of a foot away, lightly covering the areas required and leave to prove over the course of 3-4 hours before use. If you’re worried about the impact, always try it on an inconspicuous area before spraying the whole product!
To groom and remove dust or dirt, use a firm brush lightly on the calf hair, following the direction of the hair. Don’t be tempted to rub against the hair direction, or brush too firmly! Regular soft brushing will prevent a build up of dirt and matting.
If the product gets dirt on it, either brush with a soft suede brush in the direction of the hair, or wet a cloth in warm water and gently wipe away the dirt in the direction of the hair. Don’t be tempted to use too much or over saturate!
