Leather & Care

Full grain leather

Our Spanish full-grain leather has not been sanded, buffed or snuffed to remove imperfections or natural marks on its surface. The grain remains, giving the fibre strength and durability. The grain also has breathability, resulting in less moisture absorption from prolonged contact. Each piece of leather is absolutely unique and truly the work of nature.

and it will last

Please avoid direct heat, extreme temperatures and direct contact with wet or damp surfaces. You can apply natural leather wax, balm or oil. They each have a different effect, so please apply on a small corner first. For advice on general maintenance and care, we recommend you take your bag to a trusted leather goods repair shop.

Suede

Our soft Spanish suede is made from the underside of the skin. Because suede does not have the tough exterior skin, our suede is much softer than our vegetable-tanned and full-grain leather. Its softness, thinness and pliability make it suitable for our thoughtful designs.

Regular maintenance of suede handbags is very simple. Buff your bag with a suede brush to help restore the nap. Brushing is recommended after usage and upon removal from storage. For advice on general maintenance and care, we recommend you take your bag to a trusted leather goods repair shop.

Vegetable-tanned 
leather

Vegetable tanning is a traditional craft process that our tanneries have passed down over the years, using ancient recipes in conjunction with state-of-the-art technology. It shows off leather in its most natural state. You can really see the skill in the tanning process as well as the finished product. It is environmentally-friendly, meaning any leather products that have been vegetable-tanned can be recycled. Vegetable tanning is an age-old tradition, so most tanneries have very skilled craftsmen producing and dyeing the leather. Because of the natural tannins used, vegetable-tanned products are unique and have their own life, ever-changing throughout it. They evolve continuously for the better, developing a patina over time.

Vegetable-tanned leather lives with us, maturing depending on your lifestyle: it’s personal. Please avoid direct heat, extreme temperatures and direct contact with wet or damp surfaces. You can apply natural leather wax, balm or oil. They each have a different effect, so please apply on a small corner first. The leather tends to go darker if you treat it and will not need to be treated often. For advice on general maintenance and care, we recommend you take your bag to a trusted leather goods repair shop.
