How to care for your leather

Everyday Care.

Looking after your leather goods starts with day-to-day care. By following just a few simple rules, you can avoid unnecessary wear and tear and extend the life of your investment piece for years to come.

  • Leather is a skin, and it can stretch. Avoid overfilling your handbag, purse or wallet to maintain its original silhouette.
  • Take extra care with leather items you use often. Take the time each week to wipe away dust and spots with a soft cloth or brush
  • Scratches can detract from a flawlessly crafted piece. Take care to avoid contact with heavily embellished clothes, sharp surfaces or chunky jewellery when you're out and       about. 
  • Wet leather requires extra care, so if rain is forecast, remember to take an umbrella
  • Remember to air your leather goods out occasionally to remove any unwanted smells and scents

Saffiano Leather

Saffiano leather has a signature textured finish. This cross-hatch texture coupled with the wax treatment makes it incredibly durable and stain resistant.

In order to avoid damaging the specialised finish, only clean your Saffiano leather products with a soft damp cloth or a specific leather cleaning solution.

Textured Leather


When cleaning textured leathers such as pebbled leather, always be sure to work with the grain.

While standard cleaning methods such as soap and water and specialised leather cleaning solutions can be applied, it's important to thoroughly remove any product build up from grooves and crevices after cleaning.

This can be achieved by gently buffing your products with a soft brush.

Storage

Storing your leather appropriately is one of the easiest ways you can prevent damage and maintain a high-quality finish:

  • Store leather away from direct sunlight as this can cause fading
  • Store handbags in a dust bag to avoid scratches
  • Store leather away from artificial sources of heat. ie. heaters can cause leather to dry and crack
