We often consider leather delicate, because exposure to water may result in shrinkage, hardening, stain, and even fungus. Mr. Olive created next generation leather that prevents these problems by reducing the water absorption rate by 80%. Mr. Olive's process is not typical surface water repelling coating, which will get easily scraped off. The special fluoride process creates semi-permanent water proof effect. If the leather gets damage, its surface as well as the leather's backside would remain water proof. Also, this process allows natural leather look and color to remain intact. You can wear the leather on rainy days, and it is quick to dry. You can even wash it (no tumble dry, please). No maintenance necessary.
