The first oiling
To protect the leather and bring out its best qualities over time, it is essential to apply saddle oil prior to the first use. This treatment waterproofs, softens and deeply nourishes the leather.
Apply the oil evenly using a brush. Next, apply the replenishing balm using a sponge and make sure to apply generously to the seams to protect them with the oils. Finally, to achieve an even colour and remove any excess, massage the leather with a cloth or soft brush.
It is worth noting that calfskin and bull calfskin are more flexible than cowhide and should only be lightly oiled because they are highly absorbing. These are located on the seat, padded flaps and saddle panels.
Let the leather absorb the product for 24 hours in a ventilated room. Natural leather will darken before lightening slightly to obtain its final colour. Important: colour may rub off in the first few uses
