further information on the product
The leather parts are made of pork leather impregnated with beeswax, so beeswax is also recommended for further treatment. However, make sure the wax does not get on the cloth. This can be prevented by scraping the leather parts with crepe tape. The leather parts can still be dyed. Any staining of the material can be removed with dew or bile soap. The option using artificial leather does not require special treatment.
For the treatment of wooden parts I recommend to use linen. You can of course also treat it with other wood preservatives. Ensure that the grooves of the rods that are designed to be slid on the ropes remain without any treatment. Failure to do so may result in abrasion or contamination of ropes during subsequent use. Seal these places with crepe tape and paint the wooden sticks with caution.
Spills and dirt can be removed with a soapy cloth. Dry Cleaning: Chair with natural leather clean only locally, do not wash! Artificial leather can be washed for a gentle program of 30 ° C, spinning up to 800 rpm. The machine can be washed in the same program in a protective cotton cloth. I recommend washing powder without bleaches and brighteners, do not use softener. Drying: The chair is not suitable to dry in the laundry dryer. Dry it in a dry and warm environment.
HOW TO INSTALL THE ROPES AFTER CLEANING:
Ropes are natural cotton, so I do not recommend washing them with washing powder, which contains bleach. After washing the rope "swells" a little and will not be easy to put on the spreader bars. I recommend wrapping the ropes at their ends with an ordinary adhesive tape and pulling them out so that their circumference is reduced, then you can easily get rods through the holes.
The armchair is very flexible at first use because the cotton ropes are not "stretched" to their final length. After a while the ropes length will stop growing and the chair will no longer spring.
