Keep your premium leather looking pristine
Congratulations on your new She Lion piece! We just know you two are going to have a long and happy time together. Like all things in life, natural leather products will start to show their age after time.
Just like our own skin, your She Lion will need moisturising and care, if she’s to be kept in top condition and ready for action for many years to come. These are our tips for keeping her in fabulous shape and condition.
Proper protection can prevent staining, grease penetration and can prevent all manner of issues later on.
Applying any form of polish will almost always change the leather colour. So do a spot check before applying to your entire bag to see if she changes colour much. We recommended using a good quality leather conditioner such as Leather Honey Leather Conditioner to condition your bag.
Prolonging the life of your leather
To avoid premature ageing of your leather products, we recommend reducing exposure to direct sunlight and extreme temperature.
Keep your item dry and avoid damp or wet surfaces. Leather doesn’t like to get soggy!
If you’re not using your bag, we recommend padding her out with paper or cloth so she stays in shape. All our bags come with a dust cover, we highly recommend you keep her tucked away safely within this to avoid getting dust in unseemly places.
The ageing effect
Natural leather products will all show an ageing effect called ‘patina’ over time. Natural wear and tear and marks that occur from day to day can add character and a life-story to your She Lion piece.
Removing dirt and grime
Clean the bag gently with a soft cloth and warm water, ensure it is placed in area where it will can dry completely before use. Embossed triangular and diamanté textured surfaces can be gently cleaned with a dampened toothbrush, avoid cleaning foil type surfaces in this way. Do not use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaning cloths on any of our vegan leather products.
Baby wipes work wonders on quickly cleaning up any messes on the interior and exterior of any She Lion vegan leather bag.
Conditioning vegan leather
While there isn't a great conditioner on the market yet for conditioning high quality PU, a small dab of baby oil on a cloth, wiped over the surface does wonders for restoring the shine and lustre of our vegan leather.
As with the natural leather bags, we recommend padding the bag out with paper or cloth so it stays in shape. All our bags come with a dust cover, we highly recommend you keep it tucked away safely within this to avoid getting dust in unseemly places.
Treated properly, you and your She Lion can expect years to #walkfearlessly together. If you have any specific care instructions, we’re here to help at firstname.lastname@example.org.
