Leather Care

L’ArC Leather Bags strive to offer our customers quality handcrafted bags constructed from the finest leathers. Our leather has been hand-crafted by artisans, using a variety of finishing techniques, each giving the leather a unique, long lasting and beautiful finish.

For this reason, any imperfections, creases, colour shades and irregularities, or non-uniformity in the leather and colour are to be regarded as features of quality and authenticity, not defects. With age, the leather may change, as with all natural products.

Our leathers are among the best available worldwide and to ensure that you can maintain the ‘like new’ appearance of your leather goods we recommend you follow a few simple practices:

  • Store your L’ArC products in the care bags provided when not in use. Never store them in plastic bags as the leather will sweat
  • Store in a place where air can circulate and away from direct sunlight
  • Store in a cool, dry place without any pressure being applied which could cause permanent indentations and deformations
  • Avoid overfilling your product as this may cause stretching and deformation in the leather/material

Depending on the leather your product is made from, the life and look of it can be greatly affected by the way it is cared for. Like our own skin, leather needs to be moisturized and protected on a regular basis. To keep your bag looking its best, we recommend the use of high quality, leather polishing or cleaning products. Spot check the product to ensure the colour and finish does not rub off.

There are a variety of products on the market, and we have not tested them all. We are unable to recommend a particular brand.

Gently use a Microfibre cloth, to wipe dirt and dust off the leather. Avoid excessive and vigorous rubbing. Leather is permeable, grease and oils will leave a stain, avoid contact with make-up, grease and liquid (including rain).

L’ArC Leather Bags will not take responsibility for any kind of damage done as a result of irresponsible treatment of the product.
