How to take care of your vegetable tanned leather sandals
Congratulations! You've just received your first pair of D'Arçé leather sandals. Not only will you look good, you've done good by voting with your wallet that you value the environment and are helping create employment in a regional, indigenous community. 🙏
Like anything of value, taking care of your sandals will make sure they are around for a long time. All of our sandals are sent with a protective leather conditioner already applied that repels some water. However, as a vegetable tanned leather, they will absorb water much more easily than chrome tanned leather. This can especially be noticeable on the lighter leathers, we suggest applying a water protector too on both the upper straps and sole to protect them from anything you encounter on your daily travels.
