Le Bas uses Argentinian vegetable tanned leather for their bags:
- This leather has been died slowly in wooden drums while respecting the environment.
- Our leathers are aniline-dyed in a water bath. The dye used penetrates all layers of the leather and is transparent. This means that scars and variations in colour are not covered up. The lack of consistency in colour and marks should not be seen as defects but as a characteristic of the natural tanning process.
- Vegetable tanned leather changes colour over time, it will darken with continual exposure to air and sunlight. Each bag will develop its own unique patina.
- If the leather gets dirty wipe your bag with care using a soft light-coloured cloth.
- We recommend waterproofing and cleaning to be undertaken by leather professionals to ensure longevity.
- Avoid scratching the bag against abrasive surfaces.
- Keep away from humidity and avoid direct sources of heat.
- In order to protect you product when you are not using it, store it n the cotton protective pouch provided.
