ITALIAN VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER IS A CLASSIC
LEATHER THAT SHOWS ITS WEAR BEAUTIFULLY OVER TIME.
IT IS WARM, IT IS STRONG, AND IT IS PERSONAL.

THIS LEATHER WILL NOT REMAIN PRISTINE AND SLEEK.
IT IS COMPLETELY NATURAL, MEANING IT IS NAKED—WITH NO
SYNTHETIC TOP FINISHES. THE COLOR WILL DARKEN, THE SURFACE
WILL CHANGE, AND EXPOSURE TO WATER WILL CREATE SPOTS.
THIS PATINA CREATED BY DAILY WEAR-AND-TEAR
WILL FADE AND EVOLVE OVER TIME.

WHILE SOME SEE EACH ABRASION AS A MEMORY THAT ENRICHES
THE CHARACTER OF THE PRODUCT, OTHERS PREFER TO
CAREFULLY PRESERVE THE NATURAL STATE OF THE LEATHER
AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. REGARDLESS OF YOUR PREFERENCE,
PROTECTING AND CONDITIONING WILL HELP RETAIN ITS QUALITY
AND EXTEND ITS USE FOR YEARS TO COME.

TO PROTECT YOUR BAG, ALWAYS SPRAY IT WITH A COMMERCIAL
PROTECTANT BEFORE USE. THIS WILL HELP GUARD IT FROM THE ELEMENTS,
BUT THE BEST PROTECTION IS TO NOT USE IT IN THE RAIN AT ALL.

FOR GENERAL MAINTENANCE AND CARE, THE BEST OPTION IS TO TAKE IT
TO A TRUSTED SHOEMAKER OR LEATHER CLEANER. IF YOU PREFER
TO CARE FOR IT YOURSELF,  YOU CAN FIND COMMERCIAL
PRODUCTS IN DRUGSTORES TO CLEAN AND POLISH THE LEATHER.
