How to care my bag
Our bags are made from 100% genuine cow leather and meant to last a lifetime if care properly. We suggest you to take the following measures:
- Scratches or traces are common on our leather bags. Just like our human skin, genuine leather bag also need to be treated with care. We recommend you use "mink oil" which you can buy from any leather store or leading department store in leather section.
The brand that we use is Tarrago which can be easily found in any leather store in Thailand but you can use any other brands.
Use a dry cloth to apply mink oil on the leather in circular action. Press softly and evenly over the surface. This will darken the color of the leather temporary.
Apply it to the whole bag for an even look.
After you have already finished. Let it dry naturally. The color will fade back to normal after few hours or a day.
And there you have it! your Memento bag will look like new and have a natural look and feel to it. More importantly, your bag will be more persist to scratches and water. We recommend you to do this before starting to use it. This will help you bag last longer.
*Disclaimer: This might darken the color of the leather. Additionally, there are many brand on the market, some might darken the color of the bag and some might lighten it. If you aren't sure which, try a little amount on a small area on the bag first to see the changes.*
- Please avoid exposing the bag in direct sunlight because the color of the bag may fade away
- Please avoid using the bag in heavy downpour condition. If the bag does get wet, wipe the water off and let them dry naturally.
- Please be aware of ink or dye since the stain will be hard to remove.
