We do our best to provide a great product, but it also requires a bit of care and love from your part to ensure it's survival in the long run.
We use nikel and 24k gold plated metallic harware. To better maintain their appearance, make sure not to spray alcohol or perfume directly over them. Also, please keep in mind that despite their good quality, manipulation, may result, in the long run, in the loss of the plated finish in areas of high usage.
We're currently working with textiles with Smart Barrier finish, which basically "repels" all forms of fluids. If you happen to drop any liquid on your bag, make sure you clean it immediatelly absorbing with a paper towel. To know more about repellent textiles please read this.
