PRODUCT CARE

 

ALL HANDBAGS

GRACE handbags are made of excellent quality calf leather in grain, smooth and suede finish. They are intended for everyday use but they should be handled with care as they are delicate, handmade products. Please avoid storing the bag in a way that can damage the shape of it and always keep it in the original dust bag. You should not carry heavy objects in the bags or expose it to abrasive surfaces that may scratch it. Also, avoid any contact with liquids, rain included. Light colored handbags should not be in direct contact with darker materials (suede, denim, dyed fabrics etc) as they might rub off on it and permanently stain it. Grain calf leather and smooth calf leather handbags can benefit from occassional treatment with a leather conditioner.

 

HANDBAGS – SUEDE LEATHER

Our suede handbags are made of smooth, supple suede leather that is very delicate and soft to the touch. The color of suede products may transfer on other surfaces. Please do not bring suede handbags in touch with lighter colored surfaces or fabrics. Also, avoid contact with liquids, rain included. Humidity and heat may also increase the the possibility of color transfering to other fabrics or surfaces. We recommend that you treat your suede handbag with a protective spray for suede leather and that you occassionally use a suede brush in order to refresh its look and smooth out its velvety surface.

 

HANDBAGS – CANVAS TRIMMED WITH LEATHER

Our canvas is naturally light colored and as a result darker materials (suede, denim, loosely dyed fabrics etc) might rub off on it and permanently stain it. Also, please do not bring the canvas part of the handbags in contact with liquids, rain included. We recommend that you treat the canvas part of your handbag with a protective spray so that it doesn’t stain and that you avoid contact with abrasive surfaces so that it is not scratched, pulled or teared.

 

HANDBAGS – METALLIC LEATHERS

We occassionally use metallic leathers on GRACE handbags. Light colored metallic handbags should not be in direct contact with darker materials (suede, denim, dyed fabrics etc) as they might rub off on it and permanently stain them. Please, also avoid any contact of the handbags with liquids (rain included) and abrasive surfaces as they may get damaged or scratched.

 

SANDALS

GRACE ATELIER WORLD sandals are made of excellent quality genuine leather. In order to expand their lifespan, please avoid any contact with liquids (rain and water included) and overexposure to heat or sunlight. Leather is a natural material that can be affected from external factors. We recommend that you treat your sandals with a protective spray that is intended for use with the particular leather that your sandals are made of.
