About our Leather

Conditioning / Cleaning / Color Transfer / Suede

All of our leather products are proudly made in the USA. Made from the softest natural milled leather, our bags and accessories are available in seasonal color palettes.


Because the leathers we use are unfinished, we recommend that they be conditioned to preserve their beautiful look. Possible conditioners include mink oil, saddle soap, or weather guard spray. Mink oil and saddle soap may cause some darkening to occur and we suggest testing a small amount on an inconspicuous area, such as the inside of the handles. Weather guard spray will cause less of a change in appearance and can be used for both leather and suede. Our lighter colored leathers are more susceptible to picking up color transfer from other materials, such as darker colored leather, denim, and the natural oils from your hands. If treated prior to use, these leathers better with age and we hope that you will embrace this beautiful, worn look.


If you would like to clean your bag, we suggest professional leather cleaning, though there are various spot removers and cleaners that can be used for slight stains and general maintenance. Natural leather colors can be especially difficult to get stains out of. Darker, pigmented leather colors we offer show less wear over time.

Color Transfer

With our colored and black leathers, it is likely that some color transfer will occur. Before first use, we suggest rubbing the surface of the bag with a terry towel. Please take extra care with light colored clothing.


Suede leather may also cause color transfer onto other surfaces or clothing. We do not recommend treating with any types of oils, but have had a lot of success using weather guard sprays suitable for suede and encourage this if it is possible your products will be exposed to wetness. Use a bristled suede brush for maintenance and cleaning.
