Italian for water, Acqua is a durable, water-resistant leather suitable for a wide range of applications. Produced from hides originating in northern Italy, southern Germany, and Switzerland, a combination of a special retannage and finishing process results in leather that is not only water resistant, but also practical for applications that require a durable finish. High quality dyes used for Acqua allow a greater saturation and dye enrichment than ordinary upholstery leathers.

Maintenance Wipe with a cool, damp cloth. For tougher soiling, use a pH-balanced soap and rinse. Repeat, if needed. Occasional use of Spinneybeck Finished Leather Cleaner, Conditioner & Protector or Finished Leather Maintenance Kit is recommended. A diluted bleach solution with a 1 to 5 ratio of bleach to water can be used. Other leather cleaners such as saddle soap or household cleaners that may contain harsh chemicals, alcohol or ink removers should never be used on Acqua.
