Store your product in the original packaging or a soft pouch to avoid scratches.
Avoid contact with water.
Remove jewelry before washing hands, swimming, and/or applying products (e.g., perfume, hairspray, soap, or lotion), as this could harm the metal clasp and leather and reduce the life of the plating, as well as cause leather discoloration and loss of crystal brilliance. Avoid hard contact (i.e. knocking against objects) that can scratch or chip the crystal.
Polish your product carefully with a soft, lint free cloth or clean the leather with a specific leather cleaner. Do not soak your leather product in water.
Avoid contact with harsh, abrasive materials and glass/window cleaners.
When handling your crystal, it is advisable to wear cotton gloves to avoid leaving fingerprints.
Beautiful leather bags, the end product of painstaking, ritualized craftsmanship, deserve to be treated with care. Here's how to protect your investment piece in five easy steps.
A leather bag is a unique, beloved possession, appreciated by bon-Vivint’s
of both sexes, who cherish the supple hand, understated burnish and heady aroma that can only emanate from the premium quality skin.
Remember, however, that your favorite Quarzovivo or Pelletteria Veneta aren't wrought from metal or ceramic. They are organic artifacts, and as lustrous as your new purchases are, they may, when left to their own devices, become desiccated and dull. That is why maintenance of your leather bags and other small accouterments is so crucial if you want to enjoy them for as long as possible. Here’s how beginning with a glossary of terms you should know if you're going to take proper care of your specific leather carrier.
Most leather bags are vegetable-tanned with tannin. Downside: vegetable-tanned leather bags discolor and shrivel when drenched in water.
Items made from crocodile skin are particularly susceptible to water damage and should ideally be maintained by brand specialists.
All alligator skins come from the American Alligator, classified by CITES as a non-endangered species. The difference between alligator and crocodile is subtle, but when examined carefully, alligator scales are free from the pits present in genuine crocodile.
The untreated leather referred to as Vacchetta develop an even "tan" or patina. Vacchetta can also stain very easily. Oil stain might be permanent. However, do not risk experimental solutions. Contact Selleria Veneta; We can provide you with a professional service.
The leather is animal hide, usually sourced from cattle, that has been tanned to make it flexible and durable. The color in leather, such as that of these document holders, typically involves an aniline-dye, which saturates the skin in pigment while retaining its beautiful natural grain.
The exception to the full-grain rule: the so-called Saffiano leather, produced using Prada's proprietary method of embossing corrected-grained skin to achieve its distinctive diagonal pattern.
Nubuck is top grain hide sanded on the grain or hair side to achieve a "nap," short fibers that yield a soft, velvety texture. Scratches are evident, and care involves regular brushing of the nap to remove dirt.
Suede is often confused with nubuck but is made from the underside of the hide, resulting in a long nap. Easily stained and matted, treatment options for suede are much the same as for nubuck.
The general principle is simple: remove dirt build-up by wiping down with a cleaner made specially for the leather in question.
Note: When applying a conditioning treatment for your veg tanned leather products, take note that the leather would slightly darken in color after application. Fun fact: repeating the conditioning treatment a few more times can result in a darker shade of the leather, which most users find more beautiful to look at. Popular leather conditioning treatment formulations available today include.
