REAL LEATHER CARE GUIDELINES by Leather Boutique
Real Leather Care Guidelines
Leather is a natural material which requires particular care. Each product is made from the finest leather and sustains the wonderful aroma of leather.
The surface of a leather item may show creases and scratches that give unique character to this material. Leather goods should be protected from heat and direct sunlight as they can cause the change of colour.
Keep the item covered from heavy rain. If your leather bag becomes wet, do not use a hair dryer or other heat source to dry it. Carefully wipe away excess moisture and allow the bag to air dry. Remember to keep it in shape you intend for it as leather can become misshaped after contact with water.
Don't wear light colour handbags with dark clothing as the dye from the clothing may run and transfer to the handbag damaging the colour, becoming one of the most difficult stains to remove. Always follow the manufacturer's instruction for leather goods maintenance and storage.
Before using any type of product on the bag, test it on a spot that won't be clearly visible. To clean leather, simply wipe it with a soft damp cloth.
Use a white cloth to prevent colour transfer. Water damages leather, so ensure the cloth is damp not wet.
