Your shoe was made with natural and discovered materials that are finished with hand polishing and patination by our master craftsmen, the LUX Bally finish. This craftsmanship requires the utmost attention during cleaning operations. In fact, cleaning cannot be subjected to mechanical abrasive actions (e.g. brushes) or substances based on waxes / ointments or alcohol-based liquids as the color would risk changing, flaking, mixing. During their cleaning we therefore recommend the utmost care in using ONLY AND EXCLUSIVELY a slightly moistened (wrung out) woolen cloth.
