Albion's Leather Care Kit
Cleanse and moisturise your bridle, saddle and leather products with the Albion Leather Care Kit!
Leather, just like your own skin needs caring for, especially in cold weather. Every possible care has been taken by Albion Saddlemakers to ensure consistency and quality of their products. Before using your product for the first time you must protect it. Leather is a perishable material, if it is not cleaned and greased regularly the life expectancy of a product is greatly reduced. This will contribute to colour loss and premature ageing of stitching and leather.
In order to keep your leather equipment looking and feeling at its best, Albion has developed highly recommended natural soap and balm cleaning products which leave the leather clean, conditioned and protected.
For best results we recommend:
Before using your bridle, saddle or leather product for the first time you must protect it. A full application of a leather conditioning product, such as the Albion leather balm, is advisable.
For used products first clean the excess sweat and mud with cloth dampened in tepid water, then follow the directions below. For calf skin wipe only with a damp cloth.
Albion Leather Soap
Apply sparingly with a damp, not wet, cloth. Wipe off excess, buff and apply Albion Leather Balm as necessary.
Albion Leather Balm
Apply sparingly with a cloth or sponge regularly to leather that is clean and dry.
Sweat along with excessive heat, sun damage, damp conditions and lack of maintenance are the most common causes of leather becoming dry, discoloured, brittle or cracked which greatly reduces the life of any leather product. Therefore daily cleaning is highly recommended. A carefully maintained product will feel soft and supple for years to come. Always store leather at room temperature
