Leather has continuously been the image of quality and extravagance. It may be a strong fabric of exceptionally higher quality than leatherette or other synthetic alternatives.
Nonetheless, it isn't indestructible and has its life span. As a normal fabric, it can alter over time, depending on how you treat it, might loosen up or pick up a unique patina, which is characteristic of normal leather and isn't a valid reason for complaint.
a) Sateen (smooth) leather - leather with a finely structured surface with small pores. The surface can be processed in a matte or glossy finish in various designs. The leather has its fine protective layer and is pre-dyed and treated. Remove dirt from this material with a suitable brush or soft damp cloth and wipe dry. Use leather care products, not shoe products. Excessive care, such as neglect, can damage the product.
b) Sateen leather without a protective layer - Leather without this layer is more susceptible to the environment. It is a delicate material, but it retains its natural appearance. A product made of such leather acquires an interesting patina over time. The surface reacts to external factors, and these reactions are not subject to complain.
c) Varnished (lacquered) leather - calfskin that has been treated with varnish, which gives it a smooth, glossy finish. This fabric is exceptionally vulnerable to mechanical harm, chemicals, dampness, and ice. To clean it, utilize a lightly damp cloth and avoid detergents completely.
d) Nubuck, velour, suede - Soft "hairy" leather, gained by splitting from full-grain leather. To clean it, use a brush with rubber fibers and products designed for nubuck/velour/suede. We recommend saturating these sorts of handbags before use to help protect them from moisture, which would otherwise leak into it.
Textile products are not suitable for rainy weather use. Do not wash such products in the washing machine, as this may damage metal components.
