Your el-solo Leather bag has arrived! Please find few useful things to note.
Why does my bag have smell?
Is the leather smell a little strong?
No worries! This can sometimes occur because leather is indeed a natural product which is ecologically produced without chemical treatment.
Regular use of the bag has proven to reduce the strong odour leaving behind that lovely, characteristic leather smell & smell will fade away within few weeks of use.
We also recommend laying a perfumed sheet inside the bag for quick results.
Why are there scratches/small cuts on the leather?
We use the skins from free range goats in our el solo nature bags.
This means that the leather can have small scratches from the trees or bushes where they roamed, for example. This simply proves just how natural our products are.
However we try to do not use scratched skin in best possible manner, but if the scratches are too evident, simply apply a beeswax-based leather balm to a cloth or sponge and gently rub it into the leather. Be sure to apply this balm smoothly and evenly in order to avoid creating dark patches in the leather.
Why can I see some loose threads on the bag?
Our nature bags are hand-crafted. It may, therefore, occasionally occur that the threads were not cut at the seams. The simplest way to fix this is to grab a small pair of scissors and carefully cuts the loose threads or can be burnt with the help of lighter.
Please take care that you don’t cut too close to the stitching, otherwise this can lead to holes in the seams.
Why my bag is not as dark as appearing in photo?
These Bags are completely natural and bags are made from genuine vegetable tanned goat leather without any chemical treatment and hence bags are not from dyed leather, simply vegetable oil is put on the bags and then tanned with sunlight.
So occasionally may be there that bags color is different as appearing in photographs because of natural tanning and some light effects of your screen.
Hence two bags can’t be similar to each other.
What are these white marks?
These white spots are grease marks and can be very easily removed.
The oily nature of the leather causes those unsightly white marks and, again, a cloth or a sponge is all you will need. Gently rub over the marks and they will magically disappear.
