natural variation
our leathers are full grain with a very natural finish. because of this, you will see the original natural variation of the skin’s surface – varying grains, textures, pores and patches are an authentic and treasured part of this natural material, making each product brilliantly unique from the very start.

make it your own
vegetable tanned leather with a natural finish behaves in a unique and characterful way. made to be used and loved, it changes over time, with use and with the environment. hand feel and colour will soften and mellow darker. any fine marks and stains acquired from daily wear will blend into the surface, as over time, it develops a beautiful, shiny, polished finish, known as a patina. So wear it in, and make it your own.

care for it
look after your bag with care and it will serve you well for many years to come. store it in the dust bag provided, stuffed and standing up right, without squashing. store in its box when travelling to prevent damage.

the natural qualities of our leather means it can absorb water, avoid soaking. if your bag gets wet, spread the water out over the surface, dab it dry and stuff with paper towels. leave to dry in a warm room naturally, away from radiators as these can make leather brittle. avoid excessive sunlight as this may darken colour.

to add some protection to your bag without losing the natural look and feel we recommend applying collonil leather gel as regularly as you like, found here.

you can apply a waterproof and UV spray for more protection, or a hide food or conditioning cream for nourishment. test a small, hidden patch of leather first for shine, colour and hand feel. for more serious stains, scratches and cleaning take your bag to a trusted leather goods repair shop. the leather is not initially colour fast, so avoid contact with light coloured clothes and surfaces.
