As a product of nature (a "living" product), full-grain cowhide derives its character, strength, and beauty from the natural environment wherein cattle reside. As such, the naturally-occurring marks, scrapes and scars are insignias of nature, not defects.
The Maker World urges to review and follow in detail, our Loving Your Leather care instructions. Remember, like our own skin, leather absorbs the environment, use, and care we give it. It is hence, important to clean and moisturize leather in order to preserve or restore it. Overtime and with frequent use, full-grain leather develops a patina (a natural sheen) and a weathered look as well as shade and grain variations, which are byproducts of using natural materials. None of these factors, yield a weakness or pending malfunction, but they do express each hide's unique character, its surface variations and individual distinctions.
