This post shows you how to protect leather bags and cases you get from Scurry Home and Paper. The bags you get from the shop eco-friendly- as such they are vegetable tanned and have no synthetic finish. Do not get so excited about your new accessory that you run off using it without protecting it. It will only result in heartbreak. Invest 10 minutes in protecting your bag every few months and it will grow in beauty and last you years.
When you first get your bag, condition and protect it right away. The video below will demonstrate how to protect your leather so it lasts for years and years to come. After your initial treatment, you’ll need to condition it every few months (click here for a recommended conditioner). You will also want to protect it every 2-4 weeks (click here for a recommended protectant).
HOW TO TREAT STAINS
Water stains: Famaco Saddle Soap can work these out. Work a pea-sized amount of it in circular motions with a cloth. Use the leather lotion afterwards to replace moisture.
Pen marks: Move fast! Rubbing it with Collonil 1909 Organic Shine Care should help.
Olive Oil: Again- move fast. You can blend the stain by using a mixture of olive oil and water. Use it over the whole bag.
