Aranyani leather goods are the product of a centuries-old tradition performed by skilled artisans and, with proper care, can not only last a lifetime but also become even more beautiful with wear.
For regular care, briskly sweep your leather bag with a soft, lint-free cloth to clean it. If your product requires deeper cleaning, we recommend you contact our customer support team to arrange for expert Aranyani aftermarket care. If you do wish to risk cleaning your product at home, we recommend using a good leather cleaner. Apply in a circular motion, and wipe with a barely moistened cloth to avoid clogging the pores of the leather. Note that slight variance in the depth of colour may occur after cleaning. As our products are constructed from natural materials, and each product is unique, colourfastness and texture may vary.
The regular and careful application of leather conditioner will keep your product soft and supple and will prevent ﬂaking and wrinkling. Depending on your climate, apply conditioner at least twice a year, and no more than once a month. We recommend a good quality leather conditioner. Apply a small amount of conditioner to a soft cloth and gently rub over the leather until it's absorbed.
When not in use, stuff your leather bag with clean bubble wrap or parchment paper to restore and hold its shape. (Never use newsprint, as the ink may stain your product.) Place your stuffed leather bag in its original dust bag, along with silica gel packets to absorb and moisture. If you are storing your bag for an extended period, air it out regularly to prevent mould growth.
The “don’t” list
Avoid exposing your bags to household chemicals, perfume, or hairspray, as these can cause its hardware (stones and metals) to lose its natural lustre. Avoid contact with anything that may stain your bags, such as oils, inks, dyes, or dark liquids. Avoid regular contact with dark garments (especially dark denim), as this may discolour lighter-coloured leather. Avoid overstuffing your bag, especially with rigid or odd-shaped items, and this may stretch the leather and cause the bag to lose its shape.
