FAQs

Is something wrong with these hides? Why are they being sold in the M&G Warehouse?


No. These hides are samples or one-of-a-kinds that are a result of our product development process.


How big are the hides?


Full hides range from 45-55 sq ft on average. Half hides range from 20-25 sq ft.



What temper are the hides?

Most of these hides will be medium/soft tempered. Perfect for wallets, bags and accessories.

 

Chrome or Veg tan?


Most M&G Warehouse hides will be chrome tanned. If a hide is vegetable tanned it will be noted.


What Tannery/Tanneries do these hides come from?


The majority of these hides come from two of our most well-know artisan tanneries - Adelaide in Bassano Del Grappa, Italy and Tanneries Omega in Navarra, Spain


What is “full grain” leather?


Full Grain refers to leather that has not been altered by sanding or buffing. Full Grain leather retains the grain layer, original texture and markings that naturally occur during the lifetime of the animal and create a one-of-a-kind look for each product. The vast majority of Moore & Giles leathers are designed on Full Grain hides. For more visit: https://www.mooreandgiles.com/leather/resources/about-our-leather/

 

What is Aniline dyed?


Aniline leather is colored by immersing hides in a dye bath with transparent, aniline dyes that fully penetrate the hide. These leathers are the most natural and often the most pristine hides are used. All surface imperfections and flaws (or beauty marks) will be visible in aniline dyed leathers.

What are cleaning/care instructions for my leather?

For regular care and cleaning, dust periodically with a dry cloth to remove residual dust and prevent dirt from building up. No harsh cleaners or solvents should ever be used on the leather, as they could abrade the finish or topcoat off the article.

For stubborn stains and spills, a lightly damp cloth with warm water should be blotted on the stain to lift and remove it. If this does not work, a mild soap and water solution (Palmolive or Dawn) should be mixed and then blotted to release the stain and then blot again with dry cloth. This should never be done heavily or in a scrubbing motion. For more visit: https://www.mooreandgiles.com/leather/resources/care/
