Caring for your leather
- Once a week, give your leather a wipe with a soft, dry cloth.
- Rotate your leather to prevent one product aging more rapidly than the others.
- Limit the item’s exposure to direct sunlight.
- To prevent wrinkling or flaking, use a small amount of leather conditioner on a soft cloth and gently rub all over, repeating every month or so
- Let water spills dry on their own, do not blow dry them.
- For a stain on white leather, rub a small amount of paste on the stain and leave for 10 minutes (1/2 cup of Lemon juice mixed with ½ cup cream of tartar). Then remove the paste using a damp cloth and moisturising soap, and wipe dry using a soft cloth.
- For food stains, crush a small amount of white chalk and leave it on the stain overnight. In the morning, brush it off with a clean cloth.
- For oil stains, it is recommended to put corn-starch on it as quickly as possible and rub it in. Immediately brush off the remaining powder with a clean cloth.
- For fresh ink and dirt stains, lightly use a white eraser on the affected area. For older stains that have set in, seek professional help.
- Store your leather handbags in dust bags or a cotton pillowcase, crossing the handles over each other and leaving in an upright position.
- To keep the shape of the bag, be sure to fill it with soft material items, acid-free tissue paper or wax paper. Avoid newspaper, which can smear and stain. Air it out once every two weeks.
- To prevent or get rid of unwanted odours, fill a plastic bag with baking soda, zip the leather bag closed, and store for a few days.
