Lamb leather is more delicate and therefore need to be handled with more care. Cowhide leather is more durable and can be worn every day. Never cover your garment in plastic as leathers need to breathe and should be kept in a cool, dry area away from heat. If leather is stored in plastic, in a warm environment, water can condense inside the plastic and mildew your leather. After you pull your leathers out of the closet, feel the skin. If it feels dry, it probably needs conditioning. When necessary, professional leather cleaning is recommended. Preserve the shape of your garment by using a wide padded hanger. If leathers and suede are cared for you can wear these jackets and coats for many years.
