All of our products are made from vegetable tanned leathers. Vegetable tanning is the traditional and most natural tanning process in the industry. This method does not use chromium or harsh chemicals, making it significantly better for the environment. This healthier choice results in stronger leather, colour is set deeper and ages well over the years to come, revealing a beautiful patina sheen. All of our leathers can be recycled and are biodegradable. We are currently working on sourcing chrome free suede for our flap linings, and is set to be implemented early 2020. With this conscious change we will be proud to be 100% chromium-free.
Due to the natural tanning process, small marks and lines may occur occasionally on the leather. Polish all bags with a leather care cream using a soft piece of cloth to reduce markings from general wear (The leather may darken slightly when applied). While scuffs can be reduced by gently rubbing with the leather cream, water, grease, perfumes and direct light or heat may leave permanent damage. Due to the delicate nature of this leather, this leather will build up a patina and age beautifully over time that is individual to each wearer.
When not in use keep your leather goods in the dust bag provided and store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Vegetable tanned leather is treated with a natural process and will therefore darken slightly with time; this is a sign of quality and is a process the leather goes through as it beautifully ages.
