Treat your bag with love and it would look better over time. Do not store your bag when it is damp, or in a humid environment.
Leather parts should be cleaned with a soft dry cloth; No soap, no water. If scratched keep using the bag and let the scratch work into the leather. Rubbing the leather gently with a cloth or treating it with natural wax will expedite the process. Minimize exposure to direct sun or excessive amounts of water. Do not apply direct heat on a wet leather; Let it dry slowly in a dry environment. It is recommended to treat the leather every once in a while with natural wax or leather cream.
Stains should be cleaned as soon as possible with a soft damp cloth. If necessary, use diluted mild detergent (Always try the detergent on a small hidden area before applying). Warm the canvas’ surface to fade creases from usage and refinish its surface. Warmed beeswax can be rubbed into the canvas to maintain maximum water-repellence.
