Our bags are made using the highest quality leather and the finest craftsmanship. Leather is an organic product and needs regular care to maintain its soft finish so you can enjoy it for as long as possible.
At BARE Leather we use a combination of full grain leather and cowhide. We recommend the following practices to best maintain and care for your investments.
The general rule of thumb is to remove dirt build-up by wiping down with a cleaner made specifically for the leather in question. There are many leather protective creams available and we strongly recommend applying this regularly to keep your piece looking and feeling beautiful. Test this product first in an inconspicuous area to see if the finish darkens.
Please note that excessive rubbing due to wearing our cowhide bags up again you clothing may result in the exposed hide coming away from the leather.
If water damage occurs, absorb as much water as possible with a thick microfiber hand towel and allow the bag to naturally dry, then condition prior to storage. Do not use a hairdryer to dry your bag as excessive heat will fade and crack the leather.
Keep cosmetics inside a pouch. Stay away from pens or anything that leeks, as most ink marks are extremely hard to get off.
Avoid rough surfaces that scratch or graze the surface of your bag.
Always keep your leather goods in a cool dry place free from moisture.
