Our Leather

We select our leather-based on the balance of functionality, durability, and ability to age gracefully.

NY Hide products are made to the very highest quality, beautifully designed and superbly handcrafted. As leather is a natural product, it is strong, durable, and tactile and like skin, it breathes and stretches.

Over time, leather products age gracefully adding character and making them distinct and unique. For these reasons NY Hide products are hard wearing and made to last so, they can be enjoyed for years to come. 

When you care for your leather goods properly, it will become more beautiful, rugged, and interesting over time, echoing its adventures—and yours

Leather care

To help maintain your leather goods, we recommend the following:

  • Clean the exterior leather with a soft cloth. Wring until the cloth is merely damp and wipe the leather in a light circular motion. Allow it to dry naturally.

  • If your leather gets wet, gently blot (not rub!) excess as soon as possible, and allow the rest to air dry. Do not use a heat source to speed up the drying.

Things to avoid

  • Do not leave in direct sunlight or next to a radiator. Avoid high temperatures and very dry atmospheres.

  • Do not expose to very wet or damp weather and other similar conditions.

  • Do not soak the leather and avoid applying strong detergents.

  • Do not wash the fabric lining.

Storage

When not in use, we recommend keeping the leather item in its soft, fabric bag in a cool, dry environment.
