Due to our choices on the leather waste, it might happen that bags leather does not seem as smooth as on some other products. A treatment with a nourishing balm will help to conceal the appearance of skin irregularities and will give the leather an attractive aspect.
How to maintain your bag?
Due to our choices to avoid wasting leather, the leather of our bag may appear less smooth than that used in other product ranges. The leather on this bag is untreated, so we recommend waterproofing before use.
To maintain the leather strength and suppleness, clean your bag with our soap and a damp sponge.
The application of a quality conditioner will attenuate any visual irregularities and give it a beautiful appearance. Once or twice a month, moisturize your clean leather with the conditioner. To do this, use a clean tissue or sponge.
Once or twice a year, soften your bag with our leather oil. Apply the product with a brush.

The bag made from French leather
Our leather is meticulously selected. We have chosen to source French leather, prioritizing ecological considerations. Moreover, the thickness, density, and strength of our leathers are rigorously controlled.
A specific vegetable tanning process using chestnut trees has been developed exclusively for our leathers. This technique aims to ensure excellent stability and durability, as well as enhancing their resistance.
