Leather is a real natural product. Living material that breathes and is flexible. The visible veins, pores, insect bites, and light and strong color differences typify the authenticity of the bag and are not material defects. Nature has left a signature here.
Like leather shoes, a leather bag also needs to be maintained. We provide these tips to everyone who has purchased a bag from us:
• Our bags are thoroughly sprayed with a stain- and water-repellent, colorless impregnation spray before shipping. This provides better protection against dirt and water. Repeat this regularly.
• A leather bag will fade in the sun and cannot withstand flowing rain. If the bag does get wet, dry it at room temperature. Do not expose it to the sun or place it near a heater.
• Dried raindrops and other light stains often disappear by rubbing the spots against each other. You can also treat them with a fine soft brush, a leather sponge, or dry foam from leather soap.
• Grease stains can be removed with talcum powder (let it sit for one day and then wipe it off with a clean cloth) or with a suede rubbing stone. If it just happened, sprinkle it with sparkling mineral water and wipe it off with a clean cloth.
• Never treat stains with corrosive solvents such as gasoline or acetone. • After drying or removing grease stains, you can touch up the color with color cream and re-spray the bag.
• Stiffened leather can be made supple again by lightly greasing it with castor oil.
• Never store a leather bag in a plastic bag.
