Each piece is handcrafted with 100% full-grain, vegetable tanned leather – the highest quality leather on the market (two grades above genuine). Because it’s natural fibers are not buffed out in the tanning process, each leather good may have a scuff or unique marking on it. Don’t worry! This is normal. It just means that your leather goods are going to keep their durability and strength for years to come. Dye transfer: because of the natural dye process of our leather color can transfer to lighter surfaces. Its uniquely marked exterior met with its supple, dare we say… butter soft, interior suddenly made every purse in your closet take second best. And who could blame them? With full-grain leather ranking two quality grades above genuine leather, it’s the highest grade of leather money can buy. Which is exciting… until you realize you suffer from those frantic morning shuffles featuring spilt coffee. (Guilty). If you’re anything like us, fear not! We’re here to remind you that being human should never stand between you and a good thing.
Do: Store your bag in a dust bag away from moisture and variations of heat or cold when it’s not in use. Test new leather care treatments in an inconspicuous area of your bag first before applying to the entire bag.
Don’t: Apply heat to your Elevate Leather to dry it, just let it dry naturally. Direct heat will dry out the leather and it may become brittle. Do not leave your bag in direct sunlight, which may change the color of your Elevate leather product. Be zealous during rainy season and try to avoid heavy downpours because leather is permeable and can never be entirely waterproof.
Additional Leather Information:
Sometimes, your bag might have a scratch or a spot when you receive it, but don’t worry; this is normal with eco-friendly, full-grain leather*.
*Eco-friendly leather products: These products are composed of leathers which are tanned using natural or biological (organic) solutions, and virtually unsealed at the end of the tanning process. Elevate chooses to work with natural Eco-Leather not only because of its safety for people and planet, but also because it gives Elevate leather a unique look. The unsealed leather allows scratches to accumulate, and the gentle tanning solutions allow natural marks in the hide to show. We consider any scratch or mark that is visible to be beautiful and completely natural.
