Our bags are crafted with high quality vegetable tanned leather with versatility in mind that will always have a place in your wardrobe for any occasion. Giving proper care and an occasional TLC will help make your bag worthwhile and ensure that you will get the most out of it.
Keep your bag away from water, rainfall and humidity in general. If it does get wet, remove the water immediately with paper towels, put some paper inside to absorb the humidity and let the leather dry naturally. Please don’t use hairdryers or ventilators to dry the bag.
It’s fine to take your bag out for a spin in the sun. However for storage before or after use, please do not leave directly in the sunlight, as the exposure to the heat could cause discoloration to the leather. Any loose dirt or dust should be wiped away with a soft cloth as soon as possible. If the stain is persistent, try rubbing carefully with a slightly damp cloth and dry right after with paper towels. Don’t use any cleaning products or colored leather creams, as they could potentially damage your bag.
Superficial marks or dirt can be rubbed carefully with a soft cloth. Marks could appear naturally on the leather surface with age and the finish may start to lose color. This is completely normal, as leather is a natural product that will show its wear over time, and also a sign of a well-loved product.
Please note that dark colored leather bags may transfer color to light fabrics and leave marks. The other way around dark fabrics may also transfer color to light colored leather – please keep this in mind with our suede pieces.
Suede is a very absorbent material and marks very easily. We recommend purchasing a suede protector spray to prevent water, dirt and moisture stains. For the occasional dust you can find specialty suede leather brushes.
Brush carefully and only in one direction to remove dust and dirt. With small back and forth movements you can get rid of more persistent stains, but be gentle.
Velvet is a very sensitive material and can absorb moisture and stains easily. Dust and dirt can be wiped with a soft cloth only in one direction. For superficial marks you can use a new soft brush and carefully brush into one direction a few times.
Raffia is a natural material and should be kept away from water, rainfall and humidity in general, because water could shrink the fiber and make the bag loose body and shape. If it does get wet carefully wipe it with paper towels and fill the bag with dry newspaper to conserve the shape. It is a durable material and the color can become warmer with age, this is completely normal. Don't use harsh chemical cleaners on stains, or this may stain raffia and cause discoloration. It is strongly recommended to spot clean raffia with a very small amount water only as needed.
Avoid exposure to heat, humidity and sunlight. Do not over stuff handbag to avoid distorting the original shape; always store the bag in its original dust bag. In an occurrence of a spill or stain on the bag, be sure to use warm, soapy water to gently rub stain/spillage off.
Keep in mind that these are natural fibers, and though it requires minimal care, we recommend checking every 4-6 months to see if any cleaning is needed. Store away from direct light or sunlight to prevent any discoloration and in any dust bags to prevent unintentional surface abrasion. Clean minor marks or stains with a soft cloth dampened with mild soap or warm water or a laundry pen, and do not machine wash.
Silk fabric is very sensitive and can damage really quickly with heat. With dry cleaning you will not lose colour and damage the fabric. If it has folding crease lines iron with low temperature.
We use gold colored plated hardware to make our stylish bags. The golden hardwares will not loose clarity and color if handled with special care. Avoid any contact with other surfaces. Avoid all contacts with liquids and especially cremes or hand lotions. Please note that we cannot accept any complaints due to loss of color of our gold plated hardwares.
