The Italian Semi-Patent Calf Leather is produced on soft calf skins and finished with a semi-shiny coating to give it its opaque appearance. For a long product life, we reccomend avoiding contact with rough and/or abrasive surfaces. Where necessary, we strongly recommend using a specialist cleaning service, alternatively a soft dry cloth can be used. In case of tougher marks we discourage the use of solvents and excessive or prolonged rubbing, as this could damage the product. Between uses, we recommend storing your BY FAR product in its original dustbag.
