Car leather seats are made of leather produced specially for use in cars. Since climate conditions in cars are more extreme than indoors, ordinary leather used for furniture is not suitable for cars.


The temperature in cars may vary from around twenty degrees below zero in winter to around 50–60 degrees above zero in summer. In addition there is direct sunlight coming through the window.
Humidity level in cars varies and fluctuates also to a great extent. For example, in winter the conditioned and hot air dries the leather, and seats may become wet due to precipitation and damp clothes.
Therefore, the leather needs constant maintenance so that it would last through time and would not be harmed by extreme climate conditions.


There are special leather maintenance products for car leather maintenance, which are available for purchase and enable users to carry out simple maintenance procedures easily by themselves. There is a special cleaning agent that is used for cleaning the leather before waxing and a separate conditioning wax, which ensures leather’s flexibility, softness and prevents the dirt from absorbing into the leather.

Car’s leather seats naturally need regular vacuum cleaning, particularly when there is a risk of sand getting on the seats. Sand and small debris between leather details have sometimes the effect of sandpaper, which slowly wears away the leather and the thread conjoining leather details and thus causes the seam to rip.


Those whose cars have light leather seats have surely noticed that the seats are turning bluish in time… Especially the outer side of the driver’s seat. This is caused by jeans.
In order to prevent this from happening, you should try to avoid driving longer distances with damp or wet jeans (this happens mostly in winter when it’s snowing or in autumn when it’s raining, but also when rain or snow has fallen on the seat while opening the door).
Another way to protect the seats from jeans colour is to wax them more often. This should be done especially when the tone of leather seats is beigish or yellowish. It is recommended that you clean such seats at least once a month and then wax them again. Wax prevents the colour from absorbing into the leather.

Sharp objects on leather seats should be avoided, since they can easily scratch the leather.
You should also avoid having big and heavy objects (suitcases, bags, boxes, etc.) on seats for a long time. Heavy objects that have sharp edges (e.g. plastic details of bags) may permanently deform the leather. If the leather on your seats has crush marks, contact us – we offer a service of removing those marks with the help of a special technology.
You should also watch out for the metal objects attached to clothes – buckles, zips, rivets, chains, etc. We have had several customers who have damaged their leather seats for example with rivets and zips on their trousers as well as with buckles and metal buttons.
