Want your leather to last a lifetime?
This balm can help, by nourishing and protecting your well-loved pieces.
(It was made for horseback riding equipment ("tack") so you know it's the good stuff)
It's a blend of essential oils, beeswax and tea tree,
and it smells AMAZING.
It will bring out the nuance,and somewhat darken the colour of most leathers (that haven't been treated with it yet), because it's adding oils back into leather that's probably thirsty!

Though it was developed for the vegetable tanned leather that we use here at materials and methods, it can be used on most leathers, but it's not for use on suede or nubuck.

LARGE - 150 g
SMALL - 75 g

Always test in an inconspicuous spot first. Will darken most leather types. 

  1. Make sure your leather is clean and dry. (Use Christian Lowe Leather Cleaner first if you need to!)
  2. Rub cloth or sponge lightly over balm.
  3. Work into leather in a circular motion.
  4. Make sure to get coverage on the whole bag (or boot, or belt....)
  5. Remove excess and gently polish with a soft dry cloth.


Prepared in small batches in Christian's northern Ontario studio.

Christian Lowe grew up in a stable.  He's been a saddler for many years, and the joy of the ritual cleaning and conditioning the tack, is what inspired him to developed his own line of leather care.
