Leather should not be exposed to direct sunlight or consistent UV light as discolouration and fading will result. Dust regularly with a feather duster and wipe with a soft slightly damp cloth in order to prevent the accumulation of dust. Dust can act as a corrosive and damage the patina of the leather. Avoid harsh chemicals and hard rubbing. Clear saddle wax or leather wax can be used on the top. For stubborn marks consult professional cleaners.
