Product & End of Life Care
The recycled leather I use in my products is a stain resistant, highly durable and fade resistant fabric. Like genuine leather it can crease (you may find creases in the leather due to the product being folded during shipping) but this is easily fixed by placing a cloth or towel over the creased area and gently ironing over it. Alternatively you can iron the bag from the inside out, using the lining material to protect the leather.
The recycled leather is strong and cleanable and has all the best characteristics of leather without the negative environmental impact of producing leather. If for any reason you need to clean the leather or cotton areas of your product simply wipe down with a damp soft cloth (like microfiber) then allow the product to dry. You can use some very diluted baby wash. Never apply cleaning agent directly to the product. For tougher stains you can try some very diluted alcohol. Make sure never to apply directly on the product and use a soft cloth to apply. Test on an inconspicuous area of the product first.
Marks on the fabric sections of the bag can be washed carefully using soap and water.
END OF LIFE CARE
All products are sent in plastic free packaging (or sometimes I re-use old packaging I have received). I advise to either reuse the packaging otherwise please recycle it in your cardboard or paper waste bins. Hopefully your product will last for many years and withstand plenty of use, but if for any reason you are wanting to dispose of it we recommend donating to a local charity shop (if in a good condition), or you can take to a textile recycling centre (we would advise to cut off any metal parts and zips before doing this).
