Lack of care, infrequent nourishment and heat can all cause leather to dry out and harden. As it hardens the material shrinks, permanently deforming the fibres.
In older and classic cars, leather upholstery was usually treated with vegetable tannins to render them less water-soluble and increase the suppleness. Leather tanned using this method begins to harden and dry out at a temperature of around 70 degrees Celsius. Modern leather is chrome-tanned which increase temperature resilience to around 90 degrees Celsius. The more infrequently leather is maintained, the lower the temperature at which it begins to harden. Although restretching leather isn't possible, using Leather Softener will help to reintroduce some flexibility to the leather and increase its lifespan.
