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 source premium vegetable tanned leather, free of synthetic finishes directly from a small family-owned tannery in Italy. Below, we have outlined general care instructions for our leather; please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any specific care inquiries, or feel free to take your bag to your local leather specialist for advice.
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 our leather. All leather products soften with wear – The Stowe’s products are no different. However, we guarantee that the original silhouette will persist over time. Any surface scuffs or scratches can be buffed out using your fingers.
Please note, all our products are made from high-quality Italian leather custom-tanned using natural dyes that maintain the surface properties of its natural origin. Each piece is unique and, upon close inspection, a light marbling or variance in hue can be observed. This is not a byproduct of the tanning or dyeing process, but rather, it is evidence of the material’s history.
