The Nubuk used in this collection has been treated for general water repellency. However, some water absorption is possible within excessive water conditions. If this happens, a dry cloth should be used to blot the excess liquid and the material should be allowed to dry thoroughly. Once dry, a suede brush should be used to gently lift the nap. Due to the unique texture (nap = raised fibers), some consideration should be given when using during inclement weather. In addition, care should also be taken as to where these particular handbags are stored when not in use. This consideration will keep the soil on the bottom to a minimum and maintain the optimal beauty of the handbag. This collection requires no creams, polishes or leather conditioning products to maintain its beauty.
