Is your leather bag looking a little marked and could use some love?! We hear you. Below are some great tips on how to get your bag looking as good as the day you got her!
Firstly, use a soft smooth cloth and lightly dampen it with water only. Massage the leather with the cloth in soft circular motions – do not rub. Begin at the centre of the marks and work your way out. You have to be careful not to overwork it as sometimes it can take away some of the leather pigment if rubbed too hard. Wait til the leather dries to see if marks are gone, this process may need to be repeated.
Always avoid using soaps or vinegar remedies to clean with as these can cause permanent damage to the leather.
Once you are happy with your bag, please use a leather conditioner to treat your leather as the water cleaning process will dry it out. We recommend the Waproo Zorbel Leather Conditioner (available on our website as well as local shoe repair places).
All Harlequin Belle pieces are made with the highest quality raw materials and are lovingly handcrafted by our skilled artisans. Caring for your HB piece is an important part of sustaining its longevity.
