Care for Luxury Leather
Leather is a natural, organic material, it evolves, becoming supple and acquiring a patina over time with careful use. Regardless of the colour and finish of each leather, Atelier Dickson standards require the natural features of the leather - fine lines, veins and pores to be visible. Leather can, however, be irreparably damaged in particular by:
Prolonged sun exposure, which will alter the colour; Alcohol (perfumes), oily products (lipstick), ink (felt and ball point), which will leave permanent marks; exposure to excessive amounts of water; Each leather is the result of a specific tanning procedure and each article is crafted in a unique way.
What is the best way to care for my new bag?
The best care for your leather accessories is to wipe them with a soft, lint-free cotton cloth, store them upright - in their dust bag - away from light and heat when they are not being used.
Do you offer gift-wrapping?
Yes we love beautifully wrapped gifts! We wrap all our handbags in bio-degradable tissue and we hand stamp our boxes for a unique look. We love finishing touches like handwritten notes; tying it all together with our cotton ribbons, including a freshly cut herb branch of your choice.
