Suede and leather goods don’t require any special treatment. True -they don’t like water but it doesn’t mean that a few drops of rain will hurt them : )
If you want to ensure any dust and liquids won’t reach them, you can use a special impregnate-spray from time to time. You must also remember that any stains must be removed with a special suede-rubber (not water). If the stain seems serious it’s always the best to contact you local leather goods repair shop.
Some of our backpacks and bags are finished with handmade brass elements. Brass oxidise over time and it slightly change the colour to more orange-gold and more matte finish. If you wish to refresh the colour of the brass you can simply use a clean cloth with a bit of a toothpaste and gently rub the brass handles.

Meet The Designer
The story is quite short, and it all happened at home. My mother has two daughters whose tastes are simply exquisite. Simply put, it is not easy to satisfy their needs. Sooner or later, one of them had to – tired of looking for the stylish, leather backpack – ask Mum for help. And mum, as all mums do, would do anything for her daughters. So this time too she was ready to put aside any of her other full-time responsibilities, and stand up to the task.
Somewhere after hours, in her spare time, in the afternoons she would draw, watch things on the Internet. Quietly, so that nobody could see, she would choose pieces of leather carefully, comparing the colors in the light of a cloudless day. Later came the time for the lining – the right one, the only one. Then came the threads, the cord, the strap, and the metal clips.
By then all family members had long since forgotten the daughter’s whim – everyone except mother, who has always been attracted to knitting. While the rest of the family was gone, she dusted off the old Singer hidden in the attic. Putting her heart into it, and the innate attention to the smallest detail, mum immersed herself in moments of complete silence in front of the sewing machine. Listening to the soothing rumble, she measured, cut, and sew.
Everyone knows how difficult it is to surprise the imagination, but that’s exactly what happened this time. Dad, stroking the dog in front of the fireplace, was as silent as never before – the state of mind you would least associate him with. Then the dogs began to stare. First the first one, then the other… Mum, who probably in her wildest dreams did not expect her efforts to make such an impression, just smiled modestly. So there it was. The first backpack! Quickly came the second one. By then, the whole family would help select each item. Mum, dad, the daughters, and the dogs: a complete and full cooperation!
