Leather skirts are a form of clothing worn mainly by ladies, they come in many different designs from mini skirts, to knee length and full length skirts.

They are in a variety of leathers from aniline leather, to pigmented leather and semi aniline leather, older Indian style skirts were made from veg tanned leather.

Smooth Lambs skin is the favourite for making leather skirts, but manufacturers also use suede, pigskin and goat skin for leather skirts.

Each type of leather skirt requires a different approach when it comes to protecting them, to help avoid stains and colour loss you must protect the leather, as well as hanging your leather skirt correctly to avoid it getting out of shape.

Cleaning leather is best done as often as possible with protection creams applied and stain barriers to help prevent stains from drinks and juices getting onto the leather skirt.

If you spill drinks on a leather skirt never rub this as you will be rubbing this into the leather rather than removing it, you will make the stain worse, it’s best to get a clean white cloth or paper towel and soak up the spill and then allow it to dry naturally.
