Heritage Leather Care range

Heritage Leather Care is a traditional 19th century leather balsam containing original old fashioned ingredients (including beeswax) well known in the trade for revitalising and protecting leather (and indeed the stitching) used in leathercraft. Various craftspeople and many professionals connected with leather products, from vintage car enthusiasts through to showjumpers and huntsmen, from antique book enthusiasts through to butlers employed at stately homes and palaces, testify to its tried and tested formula. The results obtained with Heritage Leather Care are instantaneous, yet have long lasting results, leaving old tired leather revitalised and supple, giving newer leather products a shine and protection unsurpassed by modern polishes not containing our traditional ingredients. Heritage Leather Care is generally regarded as one of the most economical leather products on the market in this day and age.

Jackets/Coats/Trousers, etc.: Use on all smooth leather and all coloured leather. Protects against dampness, wet and cold weather. Feeds and softens tired and neglected leather clothing. Maintains new look.

Suitcases/Trunks/Briefcases & Handbags: Feeds neglected leather which has rarely or hardly ever been polished (cases and trunks). Particularly good for the corners which get very scuffed. Excellent on delicate leathers used in the manufacturing of handbags.

Shoes & Boots: Heritage Leather Care is recommended for any smooth coloured leather. Cleans and shines without polishing. Particularly good for bikers' boots and horse riding boots. Leaves a waterproof coating therefore repelling rainwater and dampness.
