Taking care of your leather product
Great leather should last a lifetime and will only get prettier as the years go by. Because a leather bag is quite an investment and the daily wear and tear on leather bags can leave them dirty at the end of the day, you'll want to take good care of it. Below you find some tips on how to take care of your leather bag.
Do you wish to spot clean your bag? Please use warm water or a mild saddle soap with a soft cloth while cleaning in small circular motions. After cleaning re-treat your item using a transparent, waterproof leather spray. Always keep away from harsh chemical cleaners and products with alcohol.
It is recommended to condition your item twice a year to preserve its beautiful look and maintain its flexibility. Protect it from the rain and rough surfaces by using a transparent, waterproof leather spray.
Rain & sun
If leather gets too wet, dry it slowly at room temperature. Never dry it with a hair dryer. Speed drying will change the chemical structure of leather and your item will end up stiff. Avoid putting it in the sun or close to a radiator or other heat source as well.
When drying keep it in the shape you want it to end up. You can do this by filling the bag loosely with bubble wrap (do not overfill). Never use newspaper as the ink can rub off onto the fabrics.
Please keep in mind that direct sunlight or heavy rain can lead to discoloration.
Never store your item in plastic. Leather needs breathe. Storage in plastic prohibits that.
Suede leather may cause color transfer onto other surfaces or clothing. Please take extra care when wearing light or dark colored clothing.
Use a bristled suede brush for maintenance and cleaning.
