*Vegetable tanned natural Italian Leather: Each hide of this natural Italian leather is uniquely beautiful with natural markings, scars and color variations. Veg tanned, with an ultra smooth finish. Watch your bag evolve and change over time with use and exposure to sunlight. as the sunlight and wear develop a rich patina over time.
**Natural Vachetta leather: Created in a 150 year old U.S. Tannery using ancient hand processing techniques and vegetable extracts. With regular use, your straps will become soft and age gracefully, developing a rich patina and distinctive character.
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.
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.
