CARING FOR YOUR SAGE AUBREY HANDBAG
1. Begin with a great leather protector
First things first, it’s important to protect your bag before taking it out for the first time. For our signature smooth calf leather, the first thing we recommend to our clients to do is to protect their bag with an appropriate leather cream. A calfskin grain should be cleaned with an appropriate leather cleanser and then protected and conditioned with cream. This will create a layer of protection over the leather and shield it from superficial scratches. If you haven’t done this step before, do it now!
Denim stains occur when leather rubs against a pair of jeans (or indeed, a denim jacket). The dye used in denim is similar to hair dye. It penetrates fast and deep. The key to successfully cleaning denim stains at home is speed. The longer the mark is left on the leather, the better chance it has of becoming absorbed into the fibres. As soon as the dye has marked your leather the cleaner should be used to remove it from the surface.
Leather bags should be protected regularly to ensure a protective barrier continually coats the surface, repelling water, oils and other common substances that may come into contact with your bag. When removing dirt from day to day wear we recommend using handbag wipes. Make sure pens are capped and makeup is kept in makeup bags to avoid and spills or leaks.
