All products made from natural leathers, like handbags, luggage etc will age with time. Just like our own skin, it will need moisturising and caring for if they’re to be kept in tip-top condition throughout the years. Even with excellent care, they will still age; there’s no avoiding this; a well looked after and aged satchel is just beautiful as a new one, if not even more so.
This ageing effect is called the bags ‘Patina’, it’s a very cherished and admired effect and the effect is almost impossible to replicate properly without submitting it to the natural wear and tear that leather bags go through from everyday use. People can try to artificially age their satchels to make them look older and more battered than they actually are, but nothing looks better than the Patina of a bag that has been well cared for over the years! The ageing process adds character to a bag and gives it a life-story of it’s very own, every mark, scratch and crack tells a tale.
CARE AND CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR ANTELO BAGS:
Dirt build-up can be removed by wiping down with a damp cloth – leave to dry carefully
Metal hardware: Always treat with care where metal hardware is used – wipe leather and hardware with a damp cloth and dry carefully
Your leather bag should be treated the same way that you treat your own skin – moisturise moisturise moisturise!
To prevent flaking and wrinkling, dab a bit of conditioner on a soft cloth and rub gently all over.
The best leather cream recommended can be purchased at www.blockout.co.za (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Renapur can also be recommended
With all our denim items great care has been taken to prevent colour from rubbing off.
We have coated our denim with a special formula to prevent this, however due to the nature of denim we cannot prevent this from happening completely.
Like leather, denim is a very specialised product. Do not wash in water as it will damage leather. Spot clean with dark, damp cloth on any areas that require cleaning.
