Leather Care and Advice

Proper care and treatment of your leather garment ensures longevity. Java Kulit’s signature handling uses the finest materials. We take pride in the craftsmanship of our leather pieces.

Produced in a wide variety of types and styles, leather can be decorated using a variety of techniques and finishes, including our signature hand waxing.

Cleaning

  • Using a soft brush, gently brush to garment to remove any dust.

  • Clean your jacket using cold water and neutral soap (without any chemicals). With a sponge, gently wipe down the outside of the jacket. Avoid using hot water. Do not apply to any areas with fur as this will detrimentally damage the fur.

  • Remove the soap with the same method, using only cold water.

  • Remove any excess water with a sponge and then shake off to ensure that no water marks are left on the jacket. – Should water marks appear please use a damp sponge and wipe over the affected area before once again removing excess water.

  • Allow to dry by hanging the garment in a sufficiently ventilated area, far from direct sources of heat (radiators, etc.) and direct sunlight.

  • It is possible to clean the leather with a wool soaked in some neuter cleansing (which also contributes in giving brightness and nourishment to your garment). On suede in certain instances it is possible to remove light and soft stains with a rubber.

We recommend that you do not use a Belstaff wax on a leather jacket as the wax is produced for the wax cotton jackets alone.

Doing any of the following will damage or remove the proofing and may void the garment’s warranty:

  • Do Not dry clean.

  • Do Not machine wash.

  • Do Not tumble dry.

  • Do Not use soap or detergent of any kind.

  • Do Not use solvents or bleach.

  • Do Not iron or starch.

  • Do Not force dry or expose to a direct flame.

  • Do Not expose to direct sunlight for a long period of time (such as rear car window).

We would also recommend taking your JavaKulit jacket to a specialist reputable and professional Leather Care or cleaning company when needed as this will make caring for it day-to-day much easier. Please contact our customer services team for additional advice on trusted service providers.

Storage

  • Use strong wooden hangers or padded hangers to store your leather coats and jackets, this will help in keeping the shape of your garment. Also, make sure to store the garment in a cool and dry place avoiding humidity and direct sunlight at all costs as it will dry and discolour the leather.

  • Try to avoid folding your jacket wherever possible.

Repair

For all queries regarding repairs, please can we advise that you take your garment to your nearest store, or alternatively contact our Customer Service team on +62 87878 0000 87 or at javakulitgallery@gmail.com.
