What You'll Get
Our leather is tanned naturally using vegetable-based solution made with tree bark and dyed using organic oils which give our bags that unique vintage look! As each of our products are handmade for you, each one will have slight variations that make no two bags the exact same. We believe this adds to the uniqueness of our designs. As we choose to not use any harmful and nasty chemicals our leather can sometimes have a strong leathery odour to it, dont worry this ensures that you are getting the real deal! The smell will disappear the more you start to love and use your bag. Learn more about how to care for your bag HERE >
Chemical-free Leather Odour
Is the leather smell a little strong? Don’t worry! This can sometimes occur because our leather is indeed a natural product which is ecologically produced and we only use cow and goat skin.
Once you start to regularly use your new bag it is proven to reduce the strong odour leaving behind that lovely, characteristic leather smell. We also recommend lying a perfumed sheet inside the bag for quick results.
Leather Marks and Aging
Just like us, your bag will age over time, this is called 'Patina' which is the natural change in the state of leather. There’s sadly no avoiding it, but we feel it makes your bag unique to you.
The buffs and scuffs tell stories, we do recommend that you purchase a leather conditioner to smooth the leather or if you like you can simply use Vaseline for minor scratches and natural oils to soften.
As for natural leather marks, we only use cow and goat skin and all the leather that we select for our bags is a by-product of the farming industry. These animals will naturally change and develop over time just like we do, so naturally there will be markings on the skins we use such as stretch marks and scarring.
The oiling and fix process we have carried out whilst producing our craft offers adequate protection against rain but if you wish to keep your bag looking extra great we recommend purchasing a leather waterproof spray.
We also recommend keeping your bag of the damp and if it gets wet let it dry naturally.
Natural Dye Process
To colour our leather bags we only use natural colourants like oil and tree bark, once applied we leave them in the sun to catch a tan and the end result gives our bags that rich leather look.
Sometimes these natural oils may be released at first so we recommend not wearing your bag with light coloured fabrics due to colour transfer, after a little TLC this will disappear.
Due to the nature of our product, we cannot accept responsibility when this occurs.
