How to Restore Nubuck Leather

You will find nubuck used in a variety of applications. Furniture made with this material is highly desirable, but will come at a much more expensive price than furniture made from lower grade types of leather.

Nubuck shoes and purses are popular, as is clothing. Some companies prefer to use it instead of suede so that a product will last longer.For example, the Birkenstock® classic sandal is made from nubuck instead of suede. The company chose this particular leather because it is so much stronger than suede and will wear well with time.

Over time, the nubuck fibers become matted, flattened, and unattractive. Fortunately, it is easy to revive these spots by using sandpaper or a stiff wire brush. Since manufacturers sand the nubuck during the creation process, light sanding or brushing restores the outer surface with little effort. To begin, sand the nubuck using short, light strokes and a back and forth motion.

 

It should only take a few passes to see improvement and owners should avoid being over-zealous during this step of the process, as roughness leads to permanent damage. If the spots are matted, it is a better idea to use the stiff wire brush to rough up the nap of the nubuck and expose a new surface of the fibers for a more luxurious look and feel.
