About Protected Leather
Protected Leather has a protective finish that repels water making it easy to clean and maintain. This type of leather can maintain a new look for years if cared for properly. Protected leather normally has a slighly glossy surface, although new leather generally has a matt finish. As dirt starts to build up on the surface it will then become shiney, which is a good way to tell it needs cleaning on dark colours where its hard to see the dirt.
This type of leather is hard wearing and the most common type of leather. If you drop water onto the surface it will simply sit on the surface, not soak in and simply make the surface shiny.
How to Care for this Type of Leather
Protected leather can easily be maintained. Its protective finish makes it easy to clean and then once its clean you can apply a conditioner to help protect it from dirt, keep it supple and give it a nice feel and smell. If you clean protected leather it is important to condition it afterwards, as cleaning it can leave it dry and make it more prone to wear. By conditioning it you not only help to protect it but you will also find it is much easier to clean time and time again as the dirt will stick to the conditioner instead of the leather.
