Care

ALL MANSUR GAVRIEL GOODS ARE MADE WITH FINE, HIGH QUALITY ITALIAN MADE MATERIALS. FOR SPECIFIC QUESTIONS REGARDING CARE, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL LEATHER GOODS REPAIR SHOP OR EMAIL US AT CONTACT@MANSURGAVRIEL.COM.

OUR CORE COLLECTION CONSISTING OF ITALIAN VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER IS THE ONLY MATERIAL THAT REQUIRES SPECIFIC FOREKNOWLEDGE. VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER IS A CLASSIC LEATHER THAT SHOWS ITS WEAR BEAUTIFULLY OVER TIME. IT IS WARM, IT IS STRONG, AND IT IS PERSONAL.

VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER WILL NOT REMAIN PRISTINE AND SLEEK. IT IS COMPLETELY NATURAL, MEANING IT IS NAKED, WITH NO SYNTHETIC TOP FINISHES. SCRATCHING WILL OCCUR. OUR NATURAL COLORWAYS SUCH AS CAMMELLO AND BRANDY WILL SLOWLY DARKEN OVER TIME DUE TO EXPOSURE TO THE SUN. AS PICTURED ABOVE, PLEASE NOTE THE CAMMELLO ANTICO BUCKET TO THE LEFT IN ITS ORIGINAL PRISTINE CONDITION, AND TO THE RIGHT, THE LEVEL OF DARKENING AFTER ONE YEAR OF DAILY USE.

THE SURFACE WILL CHANGE OVER TIME, AND EXPOSURE TO WATER WILL CREATE SPOTS. WHILE WE RECOMMEND AVOIDING RAIN, THE PATINA CREATED BY DAILY WEAR-AND-TEAR WILL FADE AND EVOLVE OVER TIME. FOR ADVICE ON GENERAL MAINTENANCE AND CARE, THE BEST OPTION IS TO TAKE YOUR BAG TO A TRUSTED LEATHER GOODS REPAIR SHOP. TO CARE FOR THE BAG AT HOME, YOU CAN FIND COMMERCIAL PRODUCTS IN DRUGSTORES TO CLEAN AND POLISH THE LEATHER.
