Tips to help maintain your leather's health:
These tips should help you maintain your leather's health, while letting its history develop and show.
Tip #1 If leather gets too wet: Dry it slowly, aim for room temperature drying with gentle air rather than direct heat. Speed drying leather changes its chemical structure and will turn into stiff crinkled chaos. As leather will remember the shape it was when wet, keep it in the shape you want it to end up.
Tip #2 If leather gets too dry: Rub something moist into it; pick a light natural leather cream that doesn't have coloring in it.
Tip #3 If leather gets dirty: Just use a damp cloth; you don't want to be putting any soaps etc. on the leather's surface.
Tip #4 Leather stretches out, but not back: If you overfill a bag, it will never really return to its former shape. If you stretch a leather bag when wet or very humid, it will move even faster so aiming to carry the right amount will help maintain it's original shape.
Tip #5 Your leather needs to breath, so please don't wrap it in plastic. Allowing the bag some ventilation will prevent any trapped moisture that could damage the leather.
