Will leather last forever if its taken care of?

    The three factors are:

    – What kind of leather is it?

    – How was it prepared?

    – How is it maintained and stored?

    Given optimal and unusual circumstances, leather can last 100s, even 1000s of years.

    But most household leather won’t last anywhere near that long. Nothing much can be done to protect cheap leather — the chemicals for its destruction are already there, and for practical purposes can’t be removed. Leather “red rot”, which can often be seen in old leather-bound books, cannot be fixed, although what remains without rot can be treated.
