A well cared for leather bag should last you a lifetime. Leather bags can be beautiful, stylish, and functional and timeless and we all know how leather is very resilient. Caring for and prolonging the life and beauty of your leather bag starts with protection. Protection is the key word for leather! Before you use your new bag, you should always protect it. To make the leather less prone to dirt and stains, a variety of leather waterproofing and protector products are available on the market. Check with your local handbag outlet or a good cobbler.
Because there are many forms of tanning procedures used on leather, which gives the leather its differing textures and strength of either soft or strong with many shades of colours used, restoring damaged bags to their original state can be a problem. It is an acquired skill where one needs in depth knowledge and understanding of leather and colours to restore a damaged bag to its original beauty. We do encourage our customers to make sure they protect their bag before using it.
