Wipe the leather with a dry cloth (only use a damp cloth if completely necessary)
Apply a natural leather balm regularly (every few weeks if you use the bag daily). If the weather forecast shows rain or snow, we recommend to treat your bag with leather balm to give your bag extra protection. Check out our leather balm for detailed instructions on how to treat your bag.
If your bag gets wet, let it air dry. Wait until it is fully dry before applying a leather balm or wax.
If you bag gets a scratch or scuff, apply leather balm as soon as possible. But don’t panic, scratches and scuffs tell a story and will gradually wear in over time.
This bag is handcrafted from premium cognac vegetable tanned cow leather, which is the most sustainable option of real leather available on the market. It is extremely durable and gets better and more supple with age. The paints and glues used are non-toxic and not harmful to the environment.
At Karu Atelier we use traditional handcraft techniques and hand stitch almost all of our bags and accessories. We use local materials and components, and because we use almost no machines we can limit the amount of energy we use, and Co2 we produce. This makes our production line as sustainable as possible.
As our leather is a natural resource, each hide will be slightly different from each other. The leather has undergone an entire other journey before it became your bag. Small scars, scratches and color differences may appear. This adds to the ‘Karu’ character of the products, and should not be seen as a flaw. It makes each item unique.
