Leather, Suede and Buffalo:
- Avoid getting wet. So remember to take your umbrella if the forecast is rain.
- Use specialist protector spray. This will reduce the risk of colour transfer and help reduce water absorbency.
- Be mindful of what you put in your bag. We strongly recommend keeping your make-up and pens in a small waterproof case to prevent leeks or spills inside your bag.
- Avoid over filling your bag with heavy items as this can stretch the hid and misshape the original silhouette.
- Take care when out and about as the hid can scratch and mark easily. Avoid contact with heavily embellished surfaces and clothes, sharp surfaces and chunky jewellery.
- carefully cleaned accordingly.
- be careful as continuous friction may cause the hid to wear away, so take care to treat the surfaces gently with a non-abrasive cloth and work with the grain of the texture.
- A damp cloth will remove dust and debris from the hid. However, do not over saturate the skin with water and ensure you allow it to dry naturally, away from artificial heat.
- Store your accessories away from direct sources of heat.
- Carefully cleaned accordingly before storing.
- We recommend placing in a plan dust bag or cotton tote bag that will not transfer the colour.
- DO NOT hang the bag , as it stretches out the handles.
- Fill the bag with crumbled butter paper, bubble wrap or plastic cushion air bags to help it retain it’s shape. DO NOT use newspapers, as the ink tends to rub off on the inside fabric. Also crumbled newspaper often shrinks, thus distorting the shape of the bag.
- Brush the hid with a specialist brush or clean dry cloth to clean
- if your bag dose get wet DO NOT dry with intense heat. DO NOT use a hairdryers or place next to a radiator, this can damage the surface further. Simply fill the bag with a clean dry towel that will not transfer colour to hold the shape of the bag. Lay on a table or hang inside to dry at room temperature.
- Printed leather can be treated much like any other; dusted with a soft brush or cleaned with a damp cloth.
- However, colour based balms and polishes should be avoided as they may alter the appearance of the print, and any conditioners or protective sprays should first be tested on an inconspicuous area such as a corner or under a pocket flap.
