I think it's real leather but I'm unsure and it's terribly wrinkled. How can I get the wrinkles out?

I've ironed leather to get fold marks out. If it IS real leather, just iron on low/medium-low with no steam from the back side or through a press cloth. If it's REALLLLLLLY wrinkled, it could be a treatment specifically applied to make it look that way.

It was smooth when I got it so it's not the treatment. My sister haphazardly folded it for me then stacked stuff on top of it.
I thought ironing the back might work but I didn't want to ruin it. It's not a large piece but it's big enough to work with.

Did you end up ironing it? 

I've had good luck using a stretcher frame and very lightly misting the leather with a spray bottle.  The only downside is that you will put holes in it when you pin it to a frame.   It is easy though, just leave it pinned in to dry off and the wrinkles will be gone.

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
