Care Guide

  • Remember, leather is skin, therefore, it can stretch.  By not overfilling your handbag, purse or wallet, this will help to maintain its original silhouette.

  • Take extra care with leather items you use often. Take the time each week to wipe away dust and spots with a soft cloth.

  • Scratches can detract from a flawlessly crafted piece. Take care to avoid contact with heavily embellished clothes, sharp surfaces, or chunky jewellery when you are out and about.

  • If/when your leather item gets wet, it will require extra care, so be mindful if rain is forecast.  An umbrella can help protect your bag etc.  Stuff the inside of the wet leather bag with newspaper to help the item retain its original shape. This also helps absorb moisture from the interior. Let it dry naturally. Keep clear of any heat sources such as a radiator or hairdryer as this will speed up the drying process and damage the leather.

Storing your leather goods appropriately is one of the easiest ways you can prevent damage and maintain a high-quality finish:

    • Store leather away from direct sunlight as this can cause fading.
    • Store handbags in a dust bag to avoid scratches.
    • Avoid using plastic bags, they prevent good ventilation.
    • Store leather away from artificial sources of heat, e.g. radiators can cause the leather to dry and crack.
  • Do regularly clean leather with a soft brush or cloth
  • Do regularly air out leather
  • Do blot away water or moisture as soon as possible
  • Do dry wet leather naturally, away from artificial heat
  • Do keep leather supple with a specialised leather conditioner every 3-6 months
  • Do clean spots and stains with a mixture of soap flakes and warm water
  • Do use a steam cleaner to disinfect and remove buildup from regular use
  • Do test any conditioners, cleaners, polishes or wax in a hidden spot beforehand
  • Don’t machine wash leather
  • Don’t get leather wet wherever possible
  • Don’t dry wet leather next to a radiator or with a hairdryer
  • Don’t tumble dry leather
  • Don’t iron leather
  • Don’t immerse leather in water to clean

Due to the leather being a natural product, occasionally skins may have small defects and natural blemishes.  This is quite normal and NOT grounds for a return.
