Guidelines can help ensure a long life of our leather.
Don’t overexpose your bag to light, heat, or water. Keep it shady. 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. 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.
Cleaning – To remove small scratches, use a clean fingertip to gently rub out the scratch. The natural oils in your skin will remove most small scratches. To remove dirt, grime or surface residue, use a soft, damp (not wet) cloth. Gently rub – don’t scrub – for removal. Before applying anything to your leather item, be sure to test in a hidden area to ensure the cleaner is compatible with the leather. Once you’ve decided whether the leather care product is acceptable, gently apply with a soft, clean cloth.
To preserve your leather & keep it looking supple; use an all-natural leather conditioner. Test the conditioner in a hidden area with a soft, clean cloth to ensure the conditioner is compatible with the leather. Once you’ve decided whether the leather care product is acceptable, gently apply with a soft, clean cloth.
Remember that leather is a natural material and should be stored in a breathable bag, not plastic, to prevent the growth of mildew and bacteria. When you’re not using your bag, store it in the dust bag. Bags need their beauty rest too.
