Things to know


Leather care:

Most of the leather that I use at Maven is originally designed for the bootmaking industry. Therefore, it’s already set-up for success out in the elements. Just like all leather, you should expect your Maven item to gain personality with age. It may gain some interesting patina, or lighten, or darken in the sunlight. Depending on what hide was used, it may just stay the same forever.

If you’d like to spruce up your Maven with a little conditioning treatment. I recommend Skidmore’s, which is an all-natural, beeswax-base conditioner from Washington state. If you opt for a product you already have at home, always go all-natural and always go for a beeswax base over any oil. Test a small patch so you can ensure you love the effect.

If you have questions about how a particular hide may change over time, please reach out to me at before purchase.
