Care of Lorica Leather

Lorica leather is a synthetic leather substitute used in shoes and other products where leather would typically be used. In addition to being vegan and vegetarian-friendly, products made with Lorica leather claim to be odour-free, waterproof and flexible. Lorica leather is made of synthetic "micro-fibers" that are treated with resin and woven to create a leather-like feel. This means Lorica leather requires similar upkeep and maintenance as a leather product, but can show less wear and tear.

Instructions

Ways to Clean Soiled Lorica Leather

1 Use a soft, dry brush to gently remove dirt. If the product is dirty and wet, a simple wipe of a damp cloth will do the trick.

2 Fill shoes with newspaper or wooden shoehorns to absorb moisture from the material. Like real leather, Lorica leather can crack if it becomes too dry. Do the same for a purse; products like belts or watch bands can be loosely wrapped in newspaper or cloth to dry.

3 Place Lorica leather products in the sun or somewhere at room temperature to dry. It is important the products dry evenly, so avoid placing them near a heat source.

Polishing Lorica Leather

1 Polish the leather after it is completely dry. Once you've cleaned the Lorica leather item, you can use a polish to help maintain its flexibility and appearance. However, it needs to be dry before the polish is applied.

2 Rub a small amount of shoe polish onto all surfaces of your product made from Lorica leather, using a dry cloth. Avoid any surfaces that are not made of the same material.

3 Wipe off excess polish with an extra dry cloth if necessary.

Tips and warnings

Lorica leather does not require a water-protectant spray.

Do not put Lorica leather in a washing machine or dryer.

Avoid using strong detergents or cleaning solutions on Lorica leather.
