2. Moisturise leather from time to time.
When leather is too dry it will eventually start to crack and lose its qualities therefore, in the end, it will not look so great. To prevent this, we recommend non-toxic leather conditioners, as they don’t change the chemistry of the material and are safe for the user. Don’t over-moisturize either, because it does as much damage as not moisturizing at all; constantly applying too much moisturizer will turn the leather into mush. It is essential that you pay enough attention to this.
