    The soft natural leather will age gradually with use.  Color will darken over time to a rich honey hue.  Leather may be treated with coconut oil, olive oil, or your favorite leather conditioner 1 - 2 times per year.  To condition, apply a light, even coat of oil or conditioner with a microfiber towel.
