How to take care of your leather bag?

To prevent leather from drying out, cracking or discoloring unevenly, try to protect it from direct heat and sunlight for prolonged periods.

Step 1: Remove impurities and dust Using a soft cloth, wipe the surface and every corner of the leather of your bag.

Step 2: Apply nourishing beeswax-based milk Using a clean cloth, apply the milk delicately and in a single, very thin layer to make it penetrate well. This step helps protect your leather bag against drying out as well as nourishing and waterproofing it.

Step 3: Polish the leather piece

After application, let the leather rest for a few moments then buff it using a soft, clean cloth.
