Walnut's own leather care product has been formulated for the unique requirements of Walnut Studiolo's products, for vegetable-tanned leather and outdoor use.
The product we've made is composed of time-tested natural ingredients that have been used since the days of New England fishermen waxing their leather boots, and are recommended by the Library of Congress for leather care.
Designed for Walnut Studiolo's leather products, the Leather Care Dressing is weather-proofing, conditioning but not softening, and has antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-mildew properties.
It can be used on the wood sides of the pocket pannier and seat barrel bag as well as the leather.
Formulated and created by Valerie and tested by Geoff in the shop, we think the new leather care products are awesome. Read more about our leather care recommendations here.
We use them now on all the products we sell. A coat of Walnut Studiolo Leather Dressing goes on all of our products as a final step before sending them to you.

ABOUT LEATHER CARE: Walnut recommends you apply a light coat of dressing whenever your leather product begins to look dry, or about once or twice a year or so. Apply less frequently if your gear is used occasionally, like on the weekends, and stored indoors, or apply more often if it's used daily or left out in the elements for long periods of time. No matter what product you use, make it a light coat, and buff it with a clean dry rag. For more about leather care recommendations, go here.
