Your TABITHA + CO™bag or purse is meant to be used wholeheartedly throughout its lifetime; however, as with all leather products your bag or purse will wear over time with repeated, daily use, giving it a worn-in aesthetic. The leather will soften with time + wear too.
We use distressed leathers with natural characteristics; it is an intentional design choice, bringing charm to your bag and minimizing your time spent on caring for the leather. If you wish to treat the leather, we suggest a leather conditioner, leather balm or spray for nubuck leathers. Applying a protector before using your new bag and with the change in seasons will provide the best possible protection for your bag. Naked nubuck and suede pull-up leather sometimes has no protective film on its surface, this makes it susceptible to soiling and staining. Be mindful with clothes that have not been washed before wearing as some darker dyes can transfer to the naked nubuck leather bag. Always try a small test area inside the bag/purse or the complementary leather key tag first before treating the entire item. Do not use cleaning chemicals on nubuck or suede.
There are several ways to give your bag or purse some extra TLC. Hang your bag or purse up when not in use.
TABITHA + CO™recommends visiting a professional shoe repair or leather shop for guidance on stain removal cleaning.
