✎ 3 Leather

A living material, leather evolves, becomes supple, and acquires a patina over time with careful use. Regardless of the color and finish of each leather, handstitchedleathert.com standards require the natural features of the leather – fine lines, veins and pores – to show through. This is known as “transparency”. The more “transparent” a leather is, the more it improves with time. Leather can, however, be irreparably damaged in particular by:

  • Prolonged sun exposure, which will alter the color:
  • Alcohol (perfumes), oily products (lipstick), ink (felt and ballpoint), which will leave permanent marks.
  • Exposure to excessive amounts of water.

Each leather is the result of specific procedures and each item is crafted in a unique way. The best way to care for your leather accessories is to wipe them with a soft, lint-free cotton cloth, store them upright – in their dust bag – away from light and heat when they are not being used.
