THE CLASSIC CARE GUIDE

Here’s your quick little handbook to TLC for our most popular leathers.


PEBBLED

Our soft, classic texture. 


Clean excess debris with a lightly damp cloth. Then, apply a small amount of our tinned leather cleaner onto a soft cloth. Rub in a circular motion until fully coated, making sure to blend any edge marks.


Dry for 1 hour + apply more coats if needed. Let cure for 24 hours.


Store away from sunlight if possible.



SNAKE

Our bold, embossed leather. 


Clean excess debris with a lightly damp cloth. Then, spray a small amount of our leather protectant onto a soft cloth. Blot and rub in a circular motion until fully coated, making sure to blend any edge marks.


Dry for 1 hour + apply more coats if needed. Let cure for 24 hours.

Store away from sunlight if possible.




NUBUCK

Our suede-like, traced delight.


Clean excess debris with a soft, dry cloth.  Then, spray a small amount of our easy-to-spritz leather protectant onto the bag. Be sure to spray from a distance to avoid water stains! 


Let cure for 24 hours. Store in a cool, dry place, away from sunlight.



BUFFED

Our sanded and smoothed essential.


Brush off excess debris with your soft cloth. Then, spray a small amount of our easy-to-spritz leather protectant onto the bag. Be sure to spray from a distance to avoid water stains. Do not rub in. Let dry, and voilà! 


PS: Cleaning a buffed leather may remove excess metallic sheen when present, so proceed with caution! Keep in mind that denim stains are most likely permanent. Please store in a cool, dry area away from sunlight.
