The leather of your bag is a high-quality natural product whose individual appearance is proof of its uniqueness. In order to preserve the characteristic look of your bag, we recommend that you do not expose it to strong wetness or intense sunlight and occasionally apply a UV-protective impregnating spray.
If you want to do something good for your bag from time to time, here are a few care tips. If you don't know to which series your bag belongs or if you have further questions about product care or repair, our bag doctor will be happy to help you personally at any time. Just write to us at [email protected]!

With the occasional application of a leather lotion or a leather grease for open-pored genuine leather, you can nourish, impregnate and protect the leather. The application should be done with a soft cloth, always sparingly and from seam to seam. It is highly recommended that you test the treatment on a concealed area before. A slight darkening by the care products cannot be avoided. This usually regulates itself after a short wearing time.
A great household remedy against jeans stains on light-coloured bags is 25% vinegar essence, which is mixed with water in a ratio of 1:1. You can now gently clean the leather with a damp, soft cloth. Still fresh discolorations can be easily treated with sensitive (baby) wet wipes.
Regular polishing with a leather lotion for smooth leather quickly removes small scratches and maintains the characteristic shine of the leather. The application should be done with a soft cloth and always sparingly. It is highly recommended to carry out a test treatment on a concealed area before. The care product should be massaged in with circular movements. After the leather has dried, it can be polished again with a dry cloth.
HUNTER & GOOD OLD FRIENDS
The use of the bags creates a patina. In order to support this, we recommend not to use any care products at the beginning. To protect the leather from heavy rain or soiling, it can be treated with wax-containing impregnation sprays for open-pored genuine leather.
If the leather becomes lighter and brittle after some time due to the loss of nutrients, the Tapir oil from Tapir or wax paste for open-pored genuine leather are suitable for care. The application should always be done sparingly. A test treatment on a concealed spot is recommended before. After the application polishing is not necessary, thus the leather remains matte.
JAPAN & THE BARBER SHOP (leather/cotton mix)
The water-repellent cotton fabric of the JAPAN series has a semi-gloss coating. Superficial dirt and fresh jeans stains can be gently removed with a dirt eraser sponge or with soapy water and a soft cloth.
A textile impregnator is recommended for the twill fabric in the BARBER SHOP. Superficial soiling can also be removed with a soft, damp cloth.
The occasional use of a leather lotion for open-pored genuine leather ensures that the leather applications remain supple.
OH SHOCK! A BLOT?
Unfortunately there is no universal solution for stains. To avoid small mishaps that aggravate the condition of the bag, please contact our bag doctor so that we can find an individual solution or let the leather centre advise you!
Stains in the interior, on the other hand, can usually be cleaned very easily. Since the inner lining is generally not sewn to the bottom of the bag, the lining bag can be pulled out for cleaning. Light soiling can be removed with soap and a damp cloth. Upholstery cleaner helps against heavy soiling. Please make sure that the cleaner does not come into contact with the leather and that the lining bag is completely dry before you push it back into the bag!
