*Mocha Tuscan Leather: is a vegetable tanned leather crafted from Tuscan shoulder hides. They are tanned by ancient hand-processing techniques using vegetable extracts. Over time the leather will burnish beautifully; its developing richness will continue to darken with sun exposure and use.
**Our luxurious ‘hair-on-hide' leather is just that- our cow leather with the hair left on. Exceptionally soft and supple to the touch, the natural characteristics will be visible. No two hides are the same, which gives you a one-of-a-kind bag.
For stains, blot immediately with a clean, dry cloth. For further cleaning, we suggest a leather cleaning conditioner. (Or not, just let that thing go and watch it get better with time). We also recommend dusting your bag or storing it in a dust bag. Dust absorbs moisture which will eventually dry your leather out.
Leather Care- Hair on Hide
Some shedding will occur. To clean your hide hair bag, wipe smoothly in the direction of the hair with a damp (not wet) cloth using mild soap and water. Do not soak the hide or get it wet, and do not wash in a washing machine or dry clean. Brushing will help to keep the hair soft and helps to remove dirt.
Wash those jeans, girl!
The indigo that is used to create those inky, dark denim jeans that you love, is notorious for bleeding (e.g. transferring off and getting on all your other stuff). Please do not wear against your unwashed dark color denim! It can be really frustrating to find that your very favorite pair of jeans has stained your new Meanwhile bag (not to mention, white furniture and even your skin!)
The horse hair tassel on the zipper pull is fragile and just for looks- please use actual zipper pull to close your bag.
