Never forget that the leather is a living natural material



The permanent search for new skins is one of our priorities and our rigorous selection is based on 3 essential elements: innovation, quality and comfort.

Thus, about twenty tanning operations were necessary to give this leather all its current qualities of resistance, authenticity and natural beauty.


The patina it will take over time is completely normal and its wrinkles or natural marks, far from being imperfections, attest to its authenticity.


Scars, shade variations, folds..., the small defects that will be added throughout its life will only accentuate the unique and sensual character of your Redskins leather


For certain qualities, a "Vintage", "Used" or "Patine" spirit has been deliberately accentuated. However, to maintain its appearance and flexibility for a long time, it needs regular care and attention.

The little everyday attentions


  • Always hang your leather on a hanger to keep it in shape.
  • Always have both parts of an assembly cleaned at the same time to avoid any colour difference.
  • Keep your leather clothing in a dry and ventilated place.
  • Avoid exposing your leather to rain and if this has been the case, let it dry on a hanger, away from any source of heat.
  • Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun (be careful on the back deck of your car).
  • Do not cover your leather with a plastic cover that would prevent it from breathing (prefer cotton).
  • The colour of some leather disgorges, beware of contact with light-coloured car upholstery or living room.
  • Dirty or stained, entrust your clothing to a specialist.

The care Velvet Leather / Coated Leather or Nubuck Leather


  • Dust with a clean, soft brush or suede gum.
  • For important tasks, entrust your clothing to a specialist.
  • Treat with a suede spray and waterproof with a special fluoride spray.

Redskins Tip For a deeper trace, use an adhesive roller.


The cares Pigmented Leather / Fat Touch Leather


  • Simply use a slightly damp cloth and wipe gently to remove dust.
  • Use a waterproofing spray to stabilize the possible disgorgement of color.
  • Never grease.
  • For small greasy spots: dust with Terre de Sommières or talcum powder, leave on for a few hours and brush gently. Renew if necessary.

Redskins Tip : keep a small bag of Terre de Sommières or talcum powder in an inside pocket in case of an incident in a restaurant, for example.


The care Nappa leather (smooth and supple appearance)


  • Clean with a damp cloth.
  • Spray and maintain with "Nappa Special" products.
  • Cleaning by a specialist.

In all cases


  • Never scrape the surface of the leather with an abrasive object (sponge, knife blade or nail) except for velvet leather with an appropriate eraser.
  • Machine or hand washing and direct steam ironing are not allowed.

If you have any doubts about the type of leather to be treated, do not hesitate to contact your distributor or a specialist. The main cleaning products you will find on the market are generally mild soaps, nourishing and renovating milks, waterproofing sprays. We recommend the Redskins maintenance range, available online and in our shops.


Always test a product on a hidden part of the garment.
