Digbeth TLC

Digbeth creates beautiful leather bags from the most carefully selected and exquisite natural leathers. The leather used is of the highest quality and from reputable, ethical sources.

As a general rule, you should take care to avoid rubbing delicate, smooth or patent leather types against rough or sharp surfaces to minimise scratching. Also to avoid any colour transfer- contact with light coloured clothing should be avoided.

Should your product get wet, remove any residual water immediately with a paper towel, pack loosely with paper and allow it to dry naturally.

A bit of TLC goes a long way with your Digbeth luxury leather bag. Here’s how you should look after your beautiful bag over the years:

How to Clean

  • Every other day, give your bag a brisk sweep with a soft dry cloth—this won't take more than a few minutes, but will go miles towards preserving the appearance of your leather.    
  • Remove dirt build-up by wiping down with a cleaner made specifically for the leather in question. We recommend to do this once a month.

How to Condition

  • As a natural skin over time the leather will begin to age- to ensure your leather bag stays as supple and luxurious as when you first purchased it- conditioning it is a very good idea.
  • Once a month, just dab a dollop of conditioner on a soft cloth and rub gently all over.

How to Weatherproof

  • Leather is permeable and can never be entirely waterproof, so avoid toting your favourite Digbeth bag in bad weather. But using a good spray protectant, will help protect your bag from the daily weather conditions. 

How to Store

  • Stash your bag in its original dust bag and fill it with stuffing—use butter paper, never newspaper, which will smear— to maintain its shape. 
  • Keep the dust bagged product in its original box, along with packets of silica gel so your bag doesn't get damp.
  • Air once every two weeks to halt the growth of mold.  

Some Final Tips

  • Let water spills dry naturally. High-heat measures like using a hairdryer will only cause the skin to crinkle beyond salvage.
  • Prevent colour transfer by consciously resisting the urge to rest your bag against your jeans.
