How to take care of leather goods?

The maintenance of a leather article can generate some doubts. The passage of the time, the storage conditions or the use we have done will affect its perfect conservation. This is the reason why, we would like to show you how to keep your leather articles in perfect conditions.  

Good quality  leather accessories have the advantage of being long lasting. Being a product that we use frequently, it is normal for it to get dirty and need special care. Leather / fur is a material that is quite sensitive to both light and water that can discolor or damage these items.

How to clean leather articles?

It is one of the most frequently asked questions. Here is a step-by-step guide to explain the best way to clean leather accessories:

  • First, you have to clean the inside of the bag. That is, we empty all the content and then apply the cleaning solution inside the bag with a cloth gently. There are specific cleaners, but we can use distilled water with a little colorless soap for hands.

  • When we have finished with the interior we begin to clean the exterior, always with a well wrung cloth.

  • Afterwards, the leather article must be allowed to dry as long as necessary. We will never use dryers or direct sun.

  • Finally, once the piece is dry, we will proceed to apply the protective cream. There are specific products for leather. Always with circular and smooth movements without much pressure. Be very careful with areas such as the handle and the corners!

It would already be!

How to keep leather goods in perfect condition?

However, cleaning the item alone is not enough, for it to last over time, you have to know how to take care of it on a daily basis. Here are some tips to follow:

  • Cover the piece when it is not in use.
  • It is convenient to fill the bag with newspaper or magazine paper each time you put it away. This will prevent deformations.
  • Store it in a dry place and protect it from sunlight.

  • Avoid excess weight. This is especially important for leather bags. Loading them in excess causes the material to suffer, and breaks or certain imperfections may appear, especially in the handle. The same happens with wallets or card holders, do not load them more than necessary to avoid pressure on the skin.

  • What to do if the skin becomes dry? Rub with a cloth dampened with moisturizer and be sure to wipe it off first to avoid discoloration.

With these simple tips, you are sure to keep your leather accessories in perfect condition. Even so, it must be taken into account that leathers are natural materials and that they are marked with use and the passage of time. This is why marks, imperfections or changes in color due to natural wear and tear may appear.

Great looking pen and great to write with!

Beautiful pen

I already own a pelikan m600, my favourite pen. I bought this for my organiser, slightly smaller and fine nib for the thinner lines. The pen looks stunning, great quality apart from the nib which felt very scratchy and irritating to use. I managed to fix it my self by polishing it with micro mesh. Writes fine now, but at this price I don’t expect to have to fix quality control issues myself, it should be just perfect out of the box.
