Leather Care Tips 

Protect 

  • Apply leather protector to prevent water spots and stains 
  • Avoid anything with wax or silicone; it will clog the pores in the leather 
  • Avoid oil or other fats as it will darken the skin 
  • Avoid cleaning products with alcohol, turpentine or other mineral spirits
  • If it gets dry use a leather cream or conditioner 
  • Leather, suede and nappa stretch out but not back. Be mindful of what you pack in your accessory, overfill will distort the shape

Clean 

  • Remove dirt and dust by wiping with a damp sponge dipped in lukewarm water 
  • Don’t use direct heat/dryer for water damage, let it air dry instead 
  • Don’t use cleaning products as they can cause discolouration and dry out the leather 
  • Use specialised leather cleaning products or take to a specialist 
  • If leather gets dry use a leather cream or conditioner 
  • Use a suede brush to clean dust off suede or ensure grain all goes in the same direction

Store

  • Store in a cool, dry place and / or in one of our dust bags. Never wrap it in plastic, leather is porous and always needs air 
  • For straps and chains, if you’re storing for a while, wrap in soft tissue paper. This is to ensure the leather does not rub together or mark
