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.
