A Guide to caring for your Leather Accessories
All products made from natural leathers will age with time. Just like our own skin, it will need moisturising and caring for if they’re to be kept in tip-top condition throughout the years. Even with excellent care, they will still age; there’s no avoiding this; a well looked after and aged accessories are just beautiful as a new one, if not even more so.
Polishing and scratches.
Scratches cannot be prevented, so if you don’t like the antique effect that scratches will give to your satchel then it’s advised that you keep it away from sharp or metallic objects and generally give it careful consideration when handling and placing it down on the ground, etc.
Another way to protect your satchel is to apply a boot polish, Vaseline or saddle soap. This will coat the leather with a protective finish that will make it more durable. Please note that applying ANY from of polish, even a clear or natural colour, will almost always change the colour of your leather. So test a small area of leather first (such as the tag/key-ring we supply with your bag) and then check your happy with the final colour before applying to the remainder of the bag.
Endeavour to apply polish at least every couple of weeks, if not more often as you would with a fine pair of leather shoes. We believe that using a traditional polish in combination with our premium leathers will develop one of the finest patinas over time.
Dirt and Dust.
If there’s small dirt marks on the finished side of the leather then usually a little warm water and a little elbow grease will do the trick of getting rid of them.
There is also a specially designed products for cleaning leather that contains a solution of natural oils that prove to be very effective at removing dirt marks and stains from leather.
The key to removing dirt and other such marks is not to use too much pressure, it’s much better to lightly rub a mark 100 times with low pressure than 10 times with a lot of pressure. The high pressure maybe likely to remove the finish and damage the leather.
Rain and water splashes
Leather accessories should not be allowed to get wet but if they do, they should be wiped with a dry cloth and allowed to dry naturally.
If your accessory gets wet then 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 normal room temperature until it dries naturally.
If you are going to continuously experience bad weather then we would suggest that you obtain some leather water-proofing products to help keep your accessory dry.
