We source our leathers from the best tanneries in Italy, France, Spain and Germany. Our leathers are chosen for their quality, feel, beauty and characteristics that we think work best with the designs we create.
Our leathers will age gently with time. Leather is a natural material, so it might be a little rigid when you start using the bag but it will soften up over the years. Expect the colour of your bag to change and a unique patina to develop.
Our bags are delivered in dust bags. Hanging your bag on a coat hanger (in the dust bag) is a good way to keep the bag in the best condition.
A great habit to get into when you receive your new handbag is to waterproof it. Successive protective layers work best for stain protection. Give the bag a light covering, wait an hour, then spray it again. Add a third layer the following day.
Please be aware that naturally dyed leathers, like the ones we use, may pick up colour from your clothes (particularly denim). These dyes are hard to remove from the leather once they are there.
If you do spill something on your bag, use a damp cloth to remove the liquid as quickly as possible and try to avoid the liquid penetrating the material. Ink, lipstick marks, grease and oil stains are, unfortunately, very hard to remove. A professional cleaner might be able to help to remove them, but in the end, it’s about accepting that these marks as part of the story of your bag.
Leather is a natural and supple material, it will stretch if you overfill your bag. Once the leather has stretched it will not return to its original state. This characteristic is worse in wet or humid conditions. However, if you are reasonable with the weight you carry, this should not happen.
