Absolutely! All our handbags are made in Italy using high quality leather. We will never sell an inferior product and offer a 12 month warranty on all our bags.
Empty your bag and remove loose dirt with a soft brush, a lint roller or the brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner. Use either a specialist leather cleaner or as mall quantity of warm soapy water and gently wipe the bag with a soft cloth.
If you are using soapy water, towel dry the bag immediately. Never saturate leather with water and never apply chemical cleaners. Depending on the conditions to which it is exposed, leather will dry out over time and its fibres become brittle and crack. To prevent this, you need to replace the leather’s oils after cleaning.
Use a conditioner which is an emulsion of natural oils and waxes and which is easily absorbed into the leather. A fragrant free moisturiser can be used as an alternative. The application of beeswax will help waterproof the leather.
This year we have been predominantly selling online or through the warehouse (which is in our house at Hamilton, Brisbane).Customers are always welcome to drop in by appointment to see the range which now totals close to 1000 handbags and wallets.
Leather can be damaged by exposure to extreme heat, sunlight or moisture. Ideally you should keep your bag in a fabric dust bag and then store it in a cool, dry, dark place. Leave plenty of space around the bag. You may wish to stuff the bag with acid free paper in order to maintain its shape.
You should avoid getting a leatherbag wet. A good quality leather bag will not be affected by a rain shower, butyou should never allow your bag to become saturated with water.
If your bag does become very wet you should stuff it with paper towel, not newspaper because the ink may mark the lining, and replace it as it becomes saturated. Dry the bag in warm conditions but do not use high heat such as a hairdryer or tumble dryer.
When the bag is dry, replenish the oils which have been washed out by using a conditioner.
