  • Proper storage when not in use
  • Use it!

Balance is the Key to Durability

Leather bags are not fans of excessive moisture. The first step in caring for your Nordform bag is to thoroughly dry it off if it gets wet. Use a clean, dry cloth to remove any moisture residue. If your bag gets wet repeatedly without proper drying, it can gradually damage the leather, causing stains and discoloration.

So, be cautious when navigating rainy weather. On the other hand, if leather becomes too try, it’ll crack and break. Balance of moisture is key, similar to the skin on your face and body.

Proper Leather Care for your leather bag is Essential

To take the best possible care of your leather bag, it’s essential to invest in proper leather care. We have developed our own leather care products – leather cream and leather wax – tailored to protect and preserve the beauty of leather goods. These products contain the necessary ingredients to moisturize the leather and shield it from drying out. In particular, our leather grease is designed for exposed leather and can create a protective layer that guards against liquids and revitalizes cracked leather. It is recommended to use these products regularly to maintain the leather’s suppleness and shine.

Guard Against Heat – Reduce the Risk of Damage

Just as you protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays, you should also shield your leather bag. Leather is sensitive to excessive heat as it can dry out and lose its suppleness.

Therefore, avoid leaving your bag in direct sunlight for extended periods or in high-temperature environments. If you know that your bag has been exposed to heat, it’s a good idea to let it cool off in a chilled room before continuing to use it.

Storage Matters

When you’re not using your leather bag, proper storage is key to preventing damage. Store it in a dust-free bag or a bag cover that protects it from dust and dirt. Such a bag cover is included when you purchase a bag from us. Alternatively, a good spot in your closet will also do the trick. Ensure that your bag has enough space to “breathe” and avoid stacking heavy objects on top of it.

This helps preserve its shape and quality. If you don’t plan on using your bag for a period, consider filling it with paper or similar while in storage. This helps the bag maintain its shape. Once again, steer clear of direct sunlight or damp environments.

It can last for years if cared for properly.
