How to care for your leather bag


Leather has been used through the ages because of its strength, beauty and durability. With a little love and care, your leather bag will give a lifetime of pleasure

Leather does not like a soaking with water. Wipe it with a damp cloth to remove surface dirt. Excessive sun, heat and/or drying may cause the leather to harden and form small cracks. Keep the leather soft and pliable by regular application of a quality leather cream.  We endorse Shield Leather Care for this purpose - it is available at most large supermarkets.

Do not overfill your bag. Leather is a natural product and can stretch. Overfilling will cause it to lose its shape and the stretching of the printed panel may cause the appearance of stretch marks, folding and/or flaking.

Oils, grease and most pen inks are virtually impossible to remove. If you do wish to use a cleaning chemical, test it on a hidden corner before applying it to the entire surface.

Leather will age beautifully, creating its own “patina” and individual appearance. It will mold to your body and become an extension of yourself.
