We choose our leather carefully to meet our cultivated aesthetic and quality standards. Our products are meant to grow more beautiful with age as they reflect the character and habits of the owner. We recommend storing your handbag in a dustbag when not in use to protect the surface from scratches and unintended wear. Below, we have outlined general care instructions for our different varieties of leather. For specific enquiries feel free to email us at [email protected] or visit your local leather specialist for in-person advice.
Vegetable tanned leather
Our Spanish vegetable tanned leather is a smooth, natural leather free of synthetic dyes or finishes. The surface is un-treated which means that it will evolve and change, which is a reflection of your daily routine. Any surface scuffs or scratches are part of the process and will eventually become part of the patina that will form. We recommend keeping your bag dry at all times. However, if wet weather is unavoidable, we strongly recommend you treat your bag in advance with a quality leather protector spray. We do not recommend using oil or wax-based products on this leather. With regular use a lovely patina will develop, which naturally protects the leather against the elements.
Our Spanish nappa is a supple and smooth leather. This leather will change very little over time. Lighter colours will pick up dyes from darker clothing such as denim. We recommend occasional treatment of natural leather conditioner to keep the leather hydrated.
Our Spanish suede has a soft and smooth texture. This luxurious product is actually the underside of leather and is just as durable. Please take care in wet weather. We highly recommend pre-treating this product with a leather spray to protect against the elements. Lighter colours will pick up dyes from darker clothing such as denim. Darker colours can transfer onto lighter clothing. Any dust left behind from the pile of the suede is easily removed with a lint roller and will eventually stop shedding with wear.
Our Spanish milled leather is a durable textured leather. Milled leather is very low maintenance and will not be damaged by exposure to sun or rain, although we recommend keeping it dry whenever possible. Lighter colours will pick up dyes from darker clothing such as denim. We recommend occasional treatment of natural leather conditioner to keep the leather hydrated.
