Spot clean fabric with mild soap and water. For colorfastness and protection of the leather, you can use a stain and water-resistant spray for leather such as Collonil Carbon Pro Spray, Scotch Guard, Kiwi or Fiebing, should you want to make the leather water-resistant. Test any leather treatment on a small area of the item and follow instructions carefully to prevent any damage to your piece. Should your leather product get wet, the best thing to do is get rid of the water stain before it has time to set. Using a clean, lint-free cloth, soak in as much water as you can by dabbing and not wiping. Allow the item to dry normally without artificial heat or excessive sunlight. After drying, if the water stain remains, a leather cleaner such as our leather serum can help minimize the water stain. Test any leather treatment on a small area and follow instructions carefully to prevent any damage to your piece. (Using a leather conditioner may darken the overall appearance of the leather, so you may want to clean and condition the entire leather based on the severity of the water stain.) For general care of your item in keeping the leather replenished, supple, and soft you can condition with a leather conditioner such as our leather serum. This leather conditioner can be used as often as desired to refresh your leather product.

How It's Made

Our Ugandan Artisan Partners create pieces out of several materials including oiled leather, cactus leather, paper beads, and ethically sourced horn. Their work is where art and precision meet-a careful cut here, a touch more blue there-to create consistently beautiful bags and accessories. Bead-makers hand mix each dye color and check every bead for quality. As the oiled leather pieces take shape and absorb other oils, they darken to become more beautiful and storied over time.
