Bati leather can get wet! Our leather is treated with organic tannins and mink oil, which both help repel water. Before making the goods, we actually wet the hide with a sponge and stretch the leather out to make it softer. Water is actually healthy for the leather sometimes :) So don't worry if the leather gets wet, just let it dry out, and apply mink oil afterwards.
Conditioning: To improve quality, tone and feel of the leather, condition leather as needed by applying mink oil to a microfiber glove or cloth and massaging it evenly onto the leather. Bati's vegetable-tanned leather absorbs moisture and natural oils and takes on a darker, richer tone afterwards. *Conditioning is a great way to help the leather develop a natural, gorgeous patina.
Liquids: Bati leather can get wet! Our leather is treated with organic ingredients that make it water resistant. Before making the goods, we actually wet the hide with a sponge and stretch the leather out to make it softer. So don't worry if the leather gets wet, just let it dry out.
Spills & Stains: Bati leather is durable and tough to stain. Stains appear more prominently on lighter leather colors. Treat stains promptly with a damp cloth and wipe clean. If treated quickly, most spills will not leave a stain. If marks or stains do persist, soak a sponge in lemon juice and rub the affected area with force. *After cleaning, you can condition the stain and the surrounding area to even out the tone.
Washing: Hand wash clean and try not to wet the leather. For tough areas, soak with soapy water and let sit. Rinse clean and let dry.
