This bench is the modern version of the Riempie bench and each one is unique as it is hand woven. The leather will stretch over time but this will form part of its characteristics.
Do not expose to direct sunlight or consistent UV light as discolouration and fading will result. Dust or vacuum regularly with a soft brush to remove surface dust. Occasionally wipe with a soft, damp cloth to avoid accumulation of dust which can act as a corrosive and damage the leather. Blot spills immediately with an absorbent cloth. Avoid harsh chemicals and detergents. Do not use artificial heat or harsh sunlight to dry leather furniture, as this can cause the leather to become dry and crack. Professional cleaning is recommended.
Teak, Aged Teak
Wipe wood daily with a cotton cloth to remove dust. Avoid harsh soaps and chemicals. Sponge with a mild solution of water and soap (dish washing liquid). Using mostly the foam is recommended. Over time the wood will absorb more of the soap making the furniture repellent to marks and staining. These care suggestions however may not be considered as a guarantee against stains.
