HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR LEATHER BAG ?

- Comment entretenir son sac en cuir ? - 28 February 20

Have you ever touched one of our creations? The texture, the grain, the soft yet resistant leather... It’s all a question of craftsmanship and care and a very studied number of steps we take before our designs fall into your hands. To make sure your Le Tanneur items remain beautiful and soft, we’ve developed a guide on how to care for your leather. It’s nothing complicated just a few simple steps.

LEATHER CARE GUIDE

Leather : A material needing specific care

Particularly resistant, leather is perfect to accompany you everywhere, every day. However, it remains sensitive to light, weather and everyday use... so it's a material that can change shape and appearance depending on the adventures you have with it.


A Le Tanneur bag can follow you for a lifetime, but this is normal if it gets a few wrinkles over time. The key to keeping your leather bag, smooth or grained, beautiful as it was on the first day: maintenance, which takes place in four steps.

NECESSARY EQUIPMENT AND FORMULA

  • A soft, clean and dry
  • A dry and smooth cloth
  • Our Saphir Renovating Treatment


Its gentle formula contains macadamia oil, beeswax and lanolin. Macadamia oil and lanolin nourish the leather, making it soft and supple. Beeswax also nourishes, protects and adds a subtle shine.

STEPS

STEP 1: DUST IT OFF
Brush the bag to remove dust.

STEP 2: NOURISH
Apply a dab of Renovating Treatment sparingly using a cotton cloth.

STEP 3: LEAVE TO REST
Let the leather rest for 3 minutes.

STEP 4: REMOVE THE EXCESS
Finish by running the cotton cloth over the entire bag to remove any excess.

OUR 5 HOMEMADE BAG TIPS TO REMEMBER :

  • Store it in a fabric pouch : Leather is a breathable material. When storing it, please do so in the Le Tanneur fabric pouch it came in, designed to safekeep your bag.
  • Keeping it in shape even when not in use, leather tends to deform. To keep its original shape fill it ideally with silk paper maintaining its original form.
  • Emptying the bag : we all know the good it can do. It's the same for him. Empty it regularly, get rid of any dust it might contain.
  • Do not hang it : this deforms the handles and can change its general appearance. Instead, place it in a clean, dry space.
  • Arrange the interior : Use different colored pouches to organize your bags interior. They will allow you to find items much easier and can also to protect your bag’s inner lining.
