Part of the sheer beauty of RUSTIC is its absolute simplicity. And authenticity. The brown shade is the classic colour you would associate with leather that has a beautiful patina. In fact, it resembles the patina of VEGETAL Nature, which would normally appear with the passage of time.
Affectionately called a “naked” leather, due to its open surface, each hide is one-of-a-kind. RUSTIC changes colour depending on the exposure to light, the environmental conditions and usage. The result is a very authentic, earthy feel with a distinct character, reflected in the patina that will emerge, rendering the leather a bit lighter over time.

Care & cleaning
As a natural material, leather requires looking after. If you care for the leather in the right way, it will become even more beautiful over time. Here are a few tips:
Our leather is ready for you to use as soon as it arrives, so there is no initial need to treat it or clean it. Over time if you see the need for cleaning, use a vacuum cleaner once or twice a month with a soft brush to remove any dust. Once or twice a year for thorough cleaning, use the foam from soap flakes stirred in warm water. Apply the foam with a dry soft cloth, minimising any contact with water. Avoid bar soap, saddle soap, leather cleaners, household detergents or chemical products. Protect from direct sunlight, excessive heat and sharp objects
The care and maintenance of leather will always depend on the specific way in which it is used, the conditions of use and how often it is used.
