Frequently Asked Questions

What is Bonded Leather?

Bonded leather is a luxurious material that is extremely soft. Our bonded leather is water impermeable, regulates well in the heat and is stain resistant. The top surface of our mats is made with a synthetic layer of polyurethane. This allows for it to wipe clean easily and maintain high resistance to stains. The backside is a soft suede leather. Our bonded leather contains 72% faux-leather and 28% natural leather fibers.

What is on the underside of the mat?
The bottom side of the mat is made of a soft, suede leather.

How do I clean the mat?
Spot treat on the top and bottom sides of the mat. Using a paper towel, cleaning wipe, or wet rag, clean off area until the mess is gone.

Can I wash the mat?
Do not machine wash. Follow the directions above to spot clean.

Is there a way to get the wrinkles out?
Yes. Lay the mat out flat in the sun for an hour or so. Steaming the underside of the mat also works wonders. Do not iron.

Is there anything I shouldn’t use on my mat?
Avoid acrylic paints. Take care that you do not use markers or ball point pens directly on the mat. And be mindful with scissors and other sharp object as they may cut the mat. Avoid using watercolors on printed mats as they are more sensitive to them.
