Default How to protect leather and textile garments

When you buy precious thing then you will have to take extra ordinary care for its long life and safety.

We would like to guide our customers that how to protect the LEATHER and TEXTILE GARMENTS. Some valuable tips are as under.

Leather Garments Cleaning
You must use commercially available leather cleaners and conditioners for all water-based spills and stains.

If there is oil-based stains then wipe the stained area clean with a clean dry cloth and allow the remainder of the stain to dissipate into the leather over 24 hours.

You should not use leather cleaners or conditioners, water or soap on oil-based stains. If stain is still visible then use a professional leather cleaning specialist in your area for professional cleaning.

Some of the leather used in our garments is 100% washable leather. Please refer to the product tag contained within the garment for further instructions and to confirm its washability.
Do not store your leather garment in plastic or non-breathable sealed bags as it can promote mildew.

Avoid storing in direct sunlight or in excessively dry conditions as this will accelerate leather aging and cracking.

When wet, allow leather garments to air-dry naturally away from any heat source to maintain shape and sizing.

Avoid extreme heat or humidity that may damage leather â €™s natural oils.
Leather can be treated with a leather conditioner yearly to restore flexibility and proper moisture levels.

In winter, promptly remove salt deposits from garments by sponging with clear water, then follow with the above treatment for wet or damp leather. Allow to air-dry.
Avoid wearing in very humid and dry environments. This will shorten the life expectancy of a leather garment.

Do not use waxes, silicone products or other leather preparations that impair a garment's ability to breathe.

Wrinkled leather garments should hang out while on hanger. Storing with creases and folds will stress the leather and cause wrinkles in the garment.

Textile Garments:
Tour Master and Cortech garments utilize several fabric technologies to provide the rider with the best possible experience when riding. These technologies are designed to improve abrasion resistance, ventilation or water- and wind-proofing of the garment.

In caring for your garment please:
Remove all body armor from the garment
Wash in cold water or low temperature setting using mild soap. Avoid using any harsh detergents.

Air-dry only, after all soap is removed from the garment.
Do not dry in the sun as heat may become excessive and break down waterproof membranes.
