Caring for riempies

Doesn’t that new white leather riempie just look spectacular on the dark imbuia or stinkhout frame? BUT NEVER use water to clean them. Use a good leather cleaner. At worst use a slightly damp cloth to wipe them down. Preferably brush them off and use a white leather cream for nourishment.
 
Raw leather riempie – damp cloth is good. You will notice that in damp weather the raw leather tends to become soft, so cleaning them with a damp cloth is no problem. 
 
The white leather riempie is treated with Aluminium Sulphate and the water removes it, which is detrimental to riempie’s life.

Rattan and riempie

White, treated riempie or raw, untreated leather riempie?

Generally, the raw leather will last longer. It will "stretch" when the weather gets damp but it will tighten very quickly when humidity drops again. But now I can offer you even better - raw kudu riempies. The best you can get. It can last 25 years if well cared for. For one, keep riempies (white and raw) out of direct sun. Actually, keep any furniture out of direct sun.

Price is more or less the same as for white riempie - about R350 for a standard diningroom chair.

I plan to publish a guideline on my website (rattanandriempie.co.za) very soon to help you estimate cost of repairs.

So, call me about that big old riempie bench and let's restore the memories!

When the customer brought me this little stool, the instruction was to put new riempie on it. But this one was calling out to me. I went ahead and restored it. I just could not leave the wood as it was. And the outcome was beautiful!

I can do the same for your neglected/damaged heirlooms.
