Leather Cleaning & Aftercare
Leather is a natural product which can breathe, shape itself, and age over time and by its very nature will have natural markings and individual characteristics. All of these distinctive characteristics contribute to the unique nature of each of our hand-made products. All techniques used for texturing and dyeing has been uniquely developed for this range. All Paul Seville products are colour fast to the highest achievable standard in the natural dyeing process and where applicable have a protective lacquer finish.
Certain types of leather and colours cannot be cleaned with some leather cleaning products so we do not recommend their use. Take products to a ‘specialist leather cleaning service’ only.
A few helpful hints:
- Always gently wipe leather, NEVER scrub.
- Always leave products to dry naturally, NEVER use direct heat.
- Do not expose products to constant direct sunlight.

Silk Cleaning & Aftercare
We advise ‘specialist dry cleaning’ on all our products.
If you choose to Hand Wash, only use detergents specifically recommended for silk. Do not use harsh detergents which may include bleach or brightening components. Soak in lukewarm or cold water.
Avoid leaving to soak and wringing/twisting garments to relieve excess water. This can damage the silk and pull the garment out of shape if twisted too hard.
To dry, it is preferential to hang silk. Avoid direct sunlight & varnished/painted drying racks as it can lead to discolouration.
DO NOT TUMBLE DRY OR PLACE NEAR DIRECT HEAT.
