All our products are made from buffalo leather and they will age with time. To keep our bags in tip top condition, then you will need to ensure the leather fibres stay supple and to accomplish this they will require natural oils or regular moisturising. Even with excellent care, they will still age; there is no avoiding this but a well looked after and aged bag is just beautiful as a new one, if not even more so.
It is always best to regularly use a leather care product to replace those oils and keep the leather supple.
For optimal protection we recommend that you give your recently purchased bag neutral leather balsam that protect against water damage and other stains.
NB: The balsam will make the colour of your bag slightly darker. Always try on a small part of the leather to ensure you are satisfied with the result.
If your bag gets wet, then never force-dry the leather by using heat. Do not place on radiators or use hair dryers, simply leave it in a place that is normal room temperature until it dries naturally.
