PRODUCT CARE

          - LEATHER
          Our leather products are made of natural leather. Slight differences in color and texture are characteristics of the leather and we love it as it is. Special care is advised for treated colors as contact with lacquer, perfume, and anything containing alcohol and derivatives which can cause damage. We recommend treating your leather goods in a leather specialist house. Whatever you do, resist the urge to use a hairdryer on it, as it will dry out the leather and cause damage. Try to avoid resting light-colored leather items against dark wash denim, as the color can transfer to the items. When carrying makeup, always keep it in a pouch inside your leather bag, and make sure all pens are capped. By following these simple tips, your leather items will retain its beauty for years to come.

          - CROCHET
          Our crochet items are handmade and deserve careful handling due to its delicate nature. Avoid sharp objects inside/outside the crochet items to prevent any tearing/cutting.
