Leather is a natural material that sometimes has varying colours and uneven surfaces. Genuine leather can leave traces of colour when it gets wet. Leather can stretch if you overfill your bag or load it with heavy objects.
Treat your new leather bag with a protective spray that prevents dirt and moisture from penetrating the leather. Moisturise your bag regularly with a leather treatment product.
Handle your leather bag with clean hands. In case of greasy stains, wipe the surface with a cotton cloth. Avoid using too much water. Apply a special leather cleaner or a mild soap, such as eco-friendly Marseille soap.
If your bag gets wet, let it dry out of the sun, then apply a moisturising conditioner. Never rub wet leather as this can damage the surface.
Fill your unused bag with bubble wrap or other soft filling material to restore its shape and retain it. You can store the bag in a natural cloth bag or a cotton pillowcase.
If you wish to wash the seat belt part, you can wash the detachable shoulder strap by hand in water at a maximum of 40°C. For the parts of the belt that are sewn to the leather, you can remove the insulated parts with a brush or wet wipes.
