Leather Care Instructions
Saint Palms Leather
Made by passionate and exacting craftsmen with infinite patience, this piece can last a lifetime if you know how to care for it properly.
A living material, leather changes, softens, and gains a patina with time. Saint Palms uses only the best italian leather, worked in such a way as to ensure that the grain and natural features – wrinkles, veins, pores – remain visible. Far from being flaws, these nuances reveal the skin’s ‘transparency’, the expression of its excellent quality and ability to age well.
The metal pieces rivets, clasps, studs, buckles are made of brass, polished by hand, and plated with fine gold, palladium or silver. Please read the following tips carefully, as they will help you keep your Saint Palms leather object last longer.
Leather is sensitive to natural elements: water, oil, heat, light, and environments that are too humid or too dry. Protect it from prolonged exposure to intense light and heat (direct sunlight, in a window, on a radiator, etc.), which may alter the colour. If the leather comes into contact with water, wipe it immediately with a soft, lint-free cloth. This will prevent the formation of stains and blisters. Some materials can leave permanent marks on leather: ink (markers and pens), oily products (makeup and lipstick), perfume and alcohol-based products. Repeated contact with raw or dark textiles can also have undesirable effects on leather that is lighter in colour.
To preserve its original beauty, your Saint Palms leather object needs time to rest. When you are not using it, keep it in your dust cover in a dry environment away from light. We recommend that you do not use anti-humidity sachets, as they have a drying effect on leather.
To clean the leather, mix a solution of warm water and dish soap, dip a soft cloth into it, wring it out and wipe the exterior surfaces. Use a second clean damp cloth to wipe off the soap. Dry with a towel.
Warm, soapy water will also remove water stains and scuffs.
