All Nubuck leathers are a natural material and vary in how they age and show ware. Where the hairs of the nubuck are longer they are susceptible to temporary shedding. 
Natural leathers as a whole may or may not transfer depending on weather and ware.
Our clients have had success using the nubuck brush and spray on this leather.

Nubuck is a top grain polished leather. Softer and smoother than suede, which is the back side of the leather. We source our nubuck leathers from France, Germany and the United States. Nubuck is meant to pick up natural oils over time from hands and the environment. This adds to the character and patina and helps build up its own resistance to stains. We still recommend some basic care. Avoid contact with heavy oils and wax. 
Truffle Nubuck is soft and drapey with a matte finish. 

This swatch is approx 2"x2" for previewing.
