    Most of what Rob said was correct

    Re: BMW i3 OLIVE LEAF TANNED LEATHER treatment?

    In that case it would be classed as a veg tanned leather
    Does the leather absorb moisture or does it sit on the surface - this will determine whether it has a coated surface and form there how it...

    Re: Best wax for leather?

    Looks great but I would suggest you put a finish coating on rather than wax.
    This will help to seal the dyes (pigments) and make the whole thing longer lasting
    Have you tried using a foam roller to...

    Re: BMW i3 OLIVE LEAF TANNED LEATHER treatment?

    What colour is your leather?
    I suspect that Olive Leaf may be a colour reference rather than a tanning process!

  16. Re: Do I need leather conditioner or coating protector?

    Lexol was created to be used on saddle leather which us very different so good to hear that they actually now say that it is no good for coated leather.
    On high end leathers the coatings are...
  17. Re: Do I need leather conditioner or coating protector?

    It is not the leather that is cracking - a common misconception
    The coatings can certainly crack and abrade due to dirt etc but if this is the case the coatings need to be replaced
    Hope this...

  19. Re: Do I need leather conditioner or coating protector?

    This is what I was explaining that some people like to 'dress' vinyl for the look it gives - if you are happy that this gives the vinyl what you like then that's fine just don't use it on leather!!...
  20. Re: Do I need leather conditioner or coating protector?

    Conditioners are not required for leather so any products containing oils and/or waxes should be avoided. On vinyl I am not sure why you would want to use a leather conditioner
    Hope this helps...
  21. Re: Do I need leather conditioner or coating protector?

    Vinyl is not made in the same way as leather - ie. it has no top coatings - there is absolutely no need for oils and waxes on vinyl but some people like their vinyl to have a certain sheen so a...

  23. Re: Do I need leather conditioner or coating protector?

    Modern chrome tanned coated leather does not need conditioning (perforated or not)

    Re: Leather damage? How to fix?

    Looks like the top coating is breaking down.
    This can be caused by the build up of body oils (secreted in sweat) which gradually break down the surface.
    Cleaners would only remove anything on the...
