At METALSKIN we hand select all of our materials, choosing them for their luxurious finishes and their top quality. Any exotic skin purchases will age over time, which is considered to be part of the materials natural charm. Atmospheric agents may cause damage. Exposure to rain and sunlight could possibly alter the nature of the skin. It is recommended to store your product away from the sunlight in its box or dust bag when you aren't using it. Exotic skins will develop their own personalities through the years. Skins may lift slightly, metallic skins may fade or lightly shed due to the foil process the tannery applies to the skin. All of this is totally normal and characteristic of exotic skins. This is not considered a flaw but part of the beauty and uniqueness of owning an exotic skin product. Your product is designed to be enjoyed for generations.
