Care Instructions

 Our love of leather stems from its low maintenance; We personally do not clean, condition or worry about the wear and tear of my bag. We find that over time, stains and scratches smooth out or resolve themselves in an "antiqued look". However, the following tips will help to keep your product in tip top shape if that is what you wish!

  • If your leather gets wet it should be wiped with a dry cloth and allowed to dry naturally. Never force-dry the leather by using heat. Do not place on radiators or use hair dryers, simply leave it in a place that is room temperature until it dries naturally.

  • Leather is susceptible to absorbing grease and oils, always handle with clean hands. Wipe the surface with a damp cotton cloth, be careful not to use too much water.

  • Stains from food or blood can often be removed with chalk powder. Crush white chalk, let it sit on the stain overnight, then dust it off with a clean cloth.

  • Scratches cannot be prevented, simple things such as placing the bag on the ground will scratch it. If you do not like the antique look that scratches will give to your bag, do the best you can to take careful consideration when handling it and keep it away from sharp or metal objects.

  • When storing the bag, stuff with tissue paper or bubble wrap. This will help the bag retain its shape. Make sure the stuffing is firm but does not stretch the seams of the bag. Place the bag in a pillow case or dust bag. Do not use anything that will trap moisture such as a plastic bag or tote.

  • You can prevent your leather from drying out or cracking by moisturizing or conditioning it from time to time. Under normal use, it should be conditioned once to twice a year. Note! Conditioning almost always changes the color of the bag, test a small area before conditioning the entire bag to make sure you are okay with the color change.

  • If your bag is exposed to wet conditions often, you can help to seal it with a beeswax product such as Skidmore's Beeswax. Note! Applying beeswax will also almost always change the color of your bag, test a small area to make sure that you are okay with the color change.
