Leather care

       


The YUSO bags are handmade with high quality & carefully selected leathers.

To preserve all its qualities, we advise you to take special care of your bag.

The leathers must be protected, especially when they are light in colour. Bad weather, humidity and heat can damage the skin.

When the bag is not being used, store it carefully in its protective pouch without squashing it. Use silk paper to prevent it from losing their shape.

In order to conserve the original richness of the leather and its coloring, avoid all prolonged exposure to heat or intense light sources.

Avoid contact with water, oil, perfume and cosmetic products. If your bag becomes wet, dab the leather with a soft, light tissue to absorb the liquid.

Take care not to brush against abrasive surfaces. On certain leathers, the resulting scratches can be alleviated by delicately massaging.

Never machinewash your bag. If you stain your bag, cleanse it with a clean, damp cloth with glycerin Marseille soap.

Applying a non oil-based revitalizing cream from time to time will reduce colour fade in the leather. Before treating the whole bag, test on a small area for precaution


LEATHERS

Leather is a natural material that comes from animal hides. It's natural, evolving, moving and softens with use. The hides may have small markings, which are not defects.

Smooth or grained leathers
Should be cleaned with a soft and dampened cloth. Once the leather is dry you can polish it in circular strokes using a high quality colourless cream and a soft cloth.

Patent leathers

Should be cleaned with a soft dampened light coloured cloth, and then dried with a clean cloth. To avoid colour migration, please do not put your patent leather handbag into prolonged contact with other leathers.

Metallic leathers

Should be cleaned with the help of a soft and dry cloth.

Goat suede, calf suede and nubuck leathers

To preserve the velvety texture of these leathers, gently rub your handbag with a soft brush. If your handbag in suede has been in contact with water, it is important to let it dry before cleaning them. In the case of superficial stains, we advise the use of a rubber brush.

Calf leather

This precious and delicate leather has kept all his natural hair due to a special process. The eventual colour shades demonstrate this authenticity. To clean calf leathers, use a soft and lightly dampened cloth and always respect the direction of the hair. Avoid repeated rubbing with abrasive objects (trouser hems, brushes…) which may alter the sooth appearance of the calf hair.
