We believe in taking care of your leather, and so does Chris Chase of Otter Wax. For years, we avoided selling shoe care products because of the sometimes harmful and toxic ingredients that go into them. When carrying beautiful handcrafted leather shoes made with vegetable tanned leather, you want to be sure that you’re using agreeable leather care products that will benefit the shoe.
When we met Chris at a trade show in 2012, we were so excited! We knew his shoe care line would be the right fit for our shop. Four years later, we are continuing to sell Otter Wax!
Otter Wax knows that quality must not be rushed. Their all natural products are formulated and handmade in Portland, Oregon, demonstrating a commitment to making items that are pure, honest, and effective.
Don’t worry, no otters were harmed in the making of these Otter Wax products! The name was inspired by the natural protective qualities of an otter’s coat. Chris and his team believe that Mother Nature has given them all the tools to create shoe care products for everyday life. They use all natural plant-based ingredients from sustainable sources that offer the least amount of environmental impact, and do not ever test their products on animals. In addition to having all their products packaged by hand, Otter Wax requires each of its suppliers to be socially responsible and meet the highest quality standards.
We are proud to carry Otter Wax in our re-souL shop and online. We hope you will love this line as much as we do! If you have any questions about the processes behind using Otter Wax products to maintain you leather, check out the video below.
Or, even better, join us at re-souL this Saturday, November 19th from 4-6pm for a special event with Chris Chase, founder of Otter Wax! Chris will be doing demos to teach proper leather care techniques using Otter Wax products. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win an Otter Wax gift basket, featuring a range of their all-natural products, and receive a gift with purchase when you come to the event.
