The metallic leather finish to this material may develop wrinkles with constant flexing; this is considered the natural wear of the product and not a fault. Should the leather become wrinkled or scratched, there is no way to restore it. While treating the leather with any alcohol based liquids will damage the metallic finish, Mirror leather can be cleaned by gently wiping it with a soft damp cloth and dried immediately. Products made of mirror leather should be stored away from direct sources of humidity and heat.
Printed pony is made from calf hair that has been bleached and then printed. This is a delicate material and should areas become bald it is impossible to reverse the damage. A bag made of this fabric should always be carried so the same side is in contact with the body. Loose dirt can be removed with a lightly damp cloth and left to dry naturally.
Suede is a very absorbent material and therefore marks easily. We recommend using Woly or Furniture Clinic suede protector to keep products in good condition. A good quality suede brush may be used to remove loose dirt but care should be taken as excessive use can cause permanent damage.
The grainy calf leather used for handbags has a thin protective coating. However, despite this and its natural resilience, grainy calf leather can still become marked. A leather protection cream (Woly or Furniture Clinic) may be used to maintain the calf leather, or alternatively contact Customer Care regarding our handbag refresh service. Loose dirt can be wiped with a soft damp cloth and dried immediately, away from direct heat.
Patent leather is made from real leather finished with a mixture of acrylic and polyurethane which gives a longer lasting, durable finish. Dirt adhering to patent can be easily removed with a damp cloth. With wear, patent leather may eventually lose its glossy finish. Patent will easily absorb ink or pigments so we advise that products are kept in their dust bag when not in use and avoid contact with dark or heavily printed materials. Care should be taken to avoid contact with alcohol or any type of solvent.
Nappa is a very soft material and shoes made from it will stretch with time and so we recommend allowance is made for this when selecting your size. Nappa is naturally very porous, and therefore coloured creams and moisturising agents should be avoided as these may leave watermarks which are very difficult to remove.
