Lux Tenebrae are the only company in the world making sumptuous corsets and luxury lingerie in a full range of Pittards dress glove leathers
Where Lux Tenebrae leather items are made from Pittards glove leather, they are washable unless otherwise stated. We use Ecover Brand, Delicates - for washing silk and wollens.
However, we have found that even with following the instructions, there will be a little loss of colour, and the leather will not be quite as soft at first. But, it soon regains it's flexibility. There is no need to feed the leather, your body oils will do that for you.
Leather Corsets are DRY CLEAN ONLY because of the metal boning. Lambskin, Calfskin and Python are DRY CLEAN ONLY because of the finish.
Hand Wash - For best results -
DO NOT TUMBLE DRY OR PLACE ON A RADIATOR
The colour fastness of leather is highly dependent on shade and finish
The aniline glove leather we use, by virtue of its delicate nature, can be made using only a limited range of dyestuffs meaning certain intense fashion colours may achieve no better than grade 2 on a grey scale assessment.This is perfectly adequate for everyday wear on it's own but requires caution if the leather is to be used in conjunction with other materials.
