We use only the best leather, made to stand the test of time. Handcrafted by expert artisans all over the world, our leather goods deserve to be treated with care.
So, here are 5 simple steps to care for your leather—whether briefcase, bag, or wallets—in a way that honours its story and yours:
1. IF YOUR LEATHER GETS TOO DRY, CONDITION IT.
Massage a high-quality leather conditioner into the leather and use a clean cloth to gently wipe off excess.
2. IF YOUR LEATHER GETS WET, DRY IT.
Gently blot (not rub!) excess as soon as possible, and allow the rest to air dry. Do not use a heat source to speed up the drying. When drying a bag, stuff the inside with paper to help the bag hold its shape and to help absorb moisture from the interior.
3. IF YOUR LEATHER GETS DIRTY, CLEAN IT.
Start by always handling your leather with clean hands - oil and residue will easily transfer to leather. Every other day, sweep your leather bag with a soft, dry, or slightly damp cloth. Once or twice a year, remove dirt buildup by wiping down your leather bag with a cleaner made specifically for leather. Apply in a circular motion, and wipe off with a slightly damp cloth to avoid clogging the pores of the leather.
4. IF YOUR LEATHER ISN’T BEING USED, STORE IT.
Proper storage is important when caring for leather. Store leather in a space away from heat, humidity, sunlight, and dust - preferably in a fabric (not plastic!) bag and/or box. Air leather bags, jackets, and luggage once every few weeks to prevent mold growth.
5. LEATHER CHANGES WITH TIME
Many of our products are made with vegetable-tanned leather. Vegetable-tanned leather changes with time, just like everything else in nature. As leather ages the finish may flatten out and marks may appear as the unique patina develops. This is the sign of well-loved leather that is taking on a character of its own.
When you care for leather properly, it will become more beautiful, rugged, and interesting over time, echoing its adventures—and yours.
