IMPORTANT: All our buff leather products are supplied in a natural leather state and are ready for whitening This was done in Victorian times by using pipe-clay and today the same effect can be achieved by the use of a tennis-shoe whitener. Several coats are usually necessary on a new product, and care should be taken when applying around brass fittings.
