Our leather is treated with a protective coat to resist water and minor scratches. However, treat your leather bag with appropriate care and then it will last for years to come.
- Do not overstuff your leather bag. Leather has the ability to mould to a shape. Over stuffing may result in permanent bumps and lumps on leather surface.
- Like our skin, leather needs to breathe as well. Do not store your leather bag in plastic bags or any nonporous covers, which may result in mould growth. Cover with breathable cloth such as the anupa packaging that is provided with purchase.
- Keep your leather bag away from direct sunlight and heat source.
- Allow wet leather bags to dry slowly and naturally in airy location.
- Use leather conditioner (which has been tested in an inconspicuous area) to rehydrate your leather bag in dry seasons or environment. Treat leather like your skin. Cleaners such as caustic household chemicals, leather preparations that contain alcohol, turpentine, and mineral spirits must never be used on your leather bag. It may result in permanent damage to the protective coating and distort the colour.
- Avoid contact with perfume, hair product and aftershave. Most food or drink spills should be wiped off as quickly as possible using a damp cloth with a mild soap solution.
- A damp cloth and leather conditioning cream (which has been tested in an inconspicuous area) should be used three or four times a year to facilitate the durability, shine and increase the beauty of the leather bag.
- Our linings are treated with a special coating to resist water and stains, which makes them easy to care for. They are developed and made to last for years to come. Treat spills with a damp cloth and a mild soap solution, and then leave it to dry naturally. Do not use harsh solvents or cleaning products.
- Tarnishing does happen to all silver and gold jewellery with some basic care instructions your jewellery can wear longer:
- DON’T shower, clean, swim, or sleep while wearing your jewellery
- Your jewellery should be the LAST thing you put on in the morning and the FIRST thing removed at night.
- Wipe your jewellery clean with a soft cloth before returning it to storage to remove any body oils and dirt.
- Store your pieces in a cool, dry place separating each piece.
- It is best to avoid contact with tap and well water containing minerals, hairspray, perfumes, vinegar, ammonia and other chemicals or household cleaners, pool (chlorine) and salt (sea) water.
- Clean jewellery on a regular basis using a good quality cleaner.
- Avoid hitting the stone on surfaces.
