Maintenance of these garments is very important. We recommend they be cleaned annually. The environment in which they are stored can be damaging if not stored properly. Our suggestion is to remove the plastic covering when you get them home and keep it stored in a controlled climate. Plastic does not breathe and can build up moisture, which will eventually dry out the skins. These textures are very sensitive to colognes, perfumes and hairsprays so please avoid using them around your garment. Consult Berkeley Cleaners for the professional care of your suede, leather or fur.
