Named for the pronounced wrinkles of this unique shrunken grain leather, Rugata is produced from a premium selection of raw material from northern and southern Germany and Switzerland. To shrink and stabilize the shrunken grain, the tanning process uses a retannage with specialized ingredients. Hides are toggled and dried, then tumbled to open the grain before a light finish is applied. The resulting hides have an understated two-tone effect with a naturally pronounced grain in a range of earthy colors.

Maintenance Wipe entire surface with a soft cloth and cool water to even out any abrasions or stains. Do not spot rub, for it will darken only that area. Occasional use of Spinneybeck Aniline Leather Cleaner, Conditioner & Protector is recommended. Other leather cleaners such as saddle soap or household cleaners that may contain harsh chemicals, alcohol or ink removers should never be used.
