How to care for your Rust & Revenge Leather Handbag

Our leather products are made to last. The better you care for your bag, the better it will age.

Handle with clean hands. Avoid liquid and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or heat. Let water spills dry naturally as heating will cause the leather to crinkle.

Remove dirt with a clean soft cloth and appropriate leather cleaner. Condition monthly. Never use harsh household products, chemicals or abrasive materials and avoid products containing solvents, silicones or oils.

We love the Plush range of leather care conditioners available at Checkers/PnP. Make sure you choose the conditioner and NOT a waxed based product or waterproofing product. The wax will just sit on top of the skin rather than soaking in and will not look nice or provide moisture and care. If you have a suede style leather be sure to opt for the suede leather care conditioner/cleaner.

Put a small amount of conditioner on a clean cloth and rub it into your bag, in all the corners, be as generous as you like (I find conditioning my leather bag very relaxing :) )

Keep rubbing the leather until the product is all absorbed – then leave it overnight to dry - out of direct sunlight.

We all know that leather improves with age and use, but this is only the case if you take good care of it while it is ageing.
