Our recommendation: Don't try to keep them look as new! Leather will show signs of wear over time. By following few simple care instructions, you will enjoy a long-lasting leather product which will age beautifully and will develop its own unique look.
Tip #1 Wet Leather
Avoid placing on or in damp or wet surfaces. Humidity or liquid will ruin the leather. Color, texture and shape will be affected.
If your wallet got wet, dry it carefully with a soft cloth (an old T-shirt or similar). Let the wallet dry completely before using it again.
- do not dry directly in the sun since the leather can shrink, lose or change its color.
- Dry it slowly. Don't use a heater such as blow dryer) Speed drying leather changes its chemical structure) - rather, let it be in the room temperature.
- Leather will remember the shape it had when wet. Before drying, empty the wallet from cards, coins and any other items and lay it flat on a smooth surface.
Tip #2 Exposure to heat and sunlight
Limit exposure to direct heat and sunlight - when exposed to sunlight leather might shrink, lose or change its color. In addition, leather which is exposed to extreme heat might crack and change its texture.
If leather gets too dry: Rub something moist into it. Pick a light leather dressing or cream that is made from reasonably natural ingredients and doesn't have coloring in it.
**Each country has very different products.
Tip #3 Cleaning your wallet
In general, there is no need to clean your wallet on a regular basis. (see tip #4)
If leather gets dirty, wipe it with a damp cloth without detergents. Dry carefully in room temperature.
If your wallet has been stained, use an alcohol-free leather cleaner. Try it first on a hidden spot to avoid unexpected reaction. These products vary from country to country, please consult your local supplier.
Do not try to remove stains that have penetrated the leather by rubbing hard. This can also damage the surface.
Never try to remove stains with strong solvents (acetone, nail polish remover, turpentine, etc.) or with abrasives. This tends to make the spots bigger.
Do not treat the leather with unsuitable products. Shoe polish, cosmetic cream, floor wax, etc.
Be extra careful when using pens near leather as ink can soak below the surface & won’t come outTip #4 Leather cleaning products
Your leather products do not need extensive treatment to begin with.
Depending on the composition, this would completely seal the pores of the leather and thus reduce the breathability to a minimum. Only after a long period of use does it makes sense to give leather accessory some of the lost moisture back to keep it flexible.
First, test any applications in a hidden area, then use the product over a large area from seam to seam.
Optional: If your wallet got wet or got a bit dry, gently rub leather cream on the outer surface. It will help revive the leather. These products vary from country to country, please consult your local supplier.
Take care - leather cream might darken the color of your wallet.
Tip #5 Avoid overstuffed wallets and bags
Leather tends to stretch and not go back to its original shape. We suggest not to overload your wallet (see recommended card capacity).
Our elastic band is strong and durable. Nevertheless, its elasticity will be affected by overloading your wallet.
If you stretch a leather bag when wet or very humid, it will change its form quickly.
