It is important that you also take care of your leather jackets and other leather apparel so that they last for many, many years to come. Leather is a material that ages gracefully and with the proper care, it can last a lifetime. Make sure that you always use a wide or padded hanger when hanging your leather jackets and garments so that they retain their shape. Leather should never be stored in plastic container or any other container that is airtight because the leather needs to breathe and will get dry. In the wintertime, if your leather gets exposed to salt, then promptly remove it with clear water and a sponge. All leather should dry naturally and not be near any heat source. There is a multitude of great leather conditions that can restore the beauty and flexibility. Do not use silicon products or waxy products to condition your leather. These will prevent the garment from breathing which in turn will dry it out and suffocate it. Never store your leather in very dry, humid or sunny areas. This will result in the leather becoming dry and cracked.
