Oiled leather is a special kind of fatty leather. Natural leather is applied with a waxy or oily surface treatment depending on the desired effect required. Obtained from special tanneries, oiled leather is durable, sturdy, and flexible. It adds a robust, rugged appeal along with an understated sheen that adds a touch of elegance. A comparatively low maintenance material, if well-cared for, it lasts years. BIRKENSTOCK sources and produces oiled leather in a sustainable, environment-friendly way.
