The leathers we use vary depending on the style of bag, clutch or wallet. Unless stated in the product description, we use the highest quality cow-hide leather for its soft, supple feel and durability. Any grain or texture variations are characteristic of this type of high-qualtiy leather and gives each item its uniqueness.
Many of our accessories also use calfskin, lambskin and/or calfhair (also known as ponyhair). These materials are incredibly soft to touch but are also quite delicate and required increased care in ensuring they last you for many years to come.
Please see more detailed leather care instructions below.
Just as you take good care of your skin, leather products need to be protected and nourished regularly to ensure they maintain their appearance. Here are a few tips for caring for your NOMADIC bag:
1. When not in use, store your bag in your NOMADIC breathable cotton dust bag in a cool, dry place.
2. We recommend polishing and conditioning your bag once a month in order to moisturize and maintain the suppleness of your bag.
3. Using a protector will help reduce the transfer from clothing dyes (especially denim) to lighter coloured bags. Please note that we advise you to take caution when wearing clothing such as denim with lighter coloured bags as any transfer of colour will not be covered under our ‘Returns – Faulty Items’ policy.
Calfhair/rawhide is a delicate material, so extra caution needs to be taken during bad weather and during activities where the hair might rub off. To clean pony hair, brush in the direction that the hair grows with a plastic brush.
Calfhair/rawhide is incredibly soft to touch and so requires increased care. Wear and tear in the normal use of this bag will not be deemed a manufacturer's fault, so please treat it with lots of love and care!
