LEATHERBAGS CARE INSTRUCTIONS

You should definitely consider some things before using your new leather case in order to have maximum enjoyment with your new favorite accessory. We have compiled our most important tips and tricks to keep your pocket nice for everyday use.



GENERALLY

Generally, we use pored leather with some few exceptions. Through its open porosity the leather creates a self-care effect, caused by friction, light and above all by the sebum of hands: the bag gets a patina which makes it a unique single piece. The patina effect is stronger or weaker depending on the surface finish. Bumped gloss leather (the surface is a bit closed due to a kind of mechanical smoothing) change slowly, while all open-pored leather show an intense patina effect. It is only important to ensure that the leather does not dry out. This may happen when the bag is not in use or is exposed to strong sunlight for a longer period, by heat (e.g. when kept behind a window), when getting frequently wet while in use or when its surface is slightly battered (at the corners and edges). Then you should perform a care treatment.



CARE PRODUCTS

Lederwachs oder Leder Öl
Strengthens especially the leather fibers and pores. Since the substances penetrate and nourish the leather deeply from the inside, the leather color may slightly change. The possible change of the leather by care treatment weakens over again. Please first check the effect of the treatment at a covered location (e.g. at the bottom of the bag).
Impägnierspray
Suitable for the surface treatment of leather and especially for short-term increase of UV protection.

Care Instructions
Depending on the oily consistence of the spray, the more sustainable and lasting is the increased UV protection.
However, the color changes due to the grade of the spray‘s
oiliness. Nevertheless, the change weakens over again. Please first check the effect of the treatment at a covered location (e.g. at the bottom of the bag). Recommendation for use: In general, the rule applies ‚less is more‘.
