Buffalo Leather Care

  • Avoid placing your buffalo leather hides in direct sunlight (under windows or skylights). All materials will fade over time when placed in direct sunlight. Some leathers are especially sensitive to sunlight.
  • Maintain at least two feet between your buffalo leather hide(s) and any heating sources. Prolonged exposure to heat vents and radiators will cause your leather to dry out.
  • Like all items in your house, leather can accumulate dust. You can fully remove dust particles from the surface with a soft cloth, making it ideal for dust sensitive persons.
  • Certain types of leathers perform better when preventative maintenance is practiced. Your retailer may offer additional leather care and maintenance suggestions or products.
  • Use of general household cleaning products, chemicals and abrasives are not recommended, as they can break down the bison leather’s protective surface and cause damage. Never use harsh chemicals or cleaning agents (such as furniture polish, ammonia, or detergent soaps) on your buffalo leather. Avoid all products containing solvents, silicones, or oils, as they may negatively affect the buffalo leather’s surface.
