Care for leather bags and tips for our products

Every Zweck item comes with the warranty and the exclusive Zweck passport!
Your bag is made of high quality, genuine leather. A much needed luxurious investment in both comfort and style.
If you damage your bag, please consult a leather specialist.
However, for regular storing and care, the following tips may help.

Storing:

Place your leather bag in an upright position in the original linen or satin bag when not in use.
To keep your product in its original shape, it is recommended to be padded with soft cotton.
Ensure metal accessories do not contact the leather as this may result in your leather being marked.
Do not store in unbreathable packaging such as plastic bags.
Keep away from high heat sources such as blow dryers and radiators.

Wearing and Caring:

Please avoid overfilling your bag to maintain its original shape.
Avoid contact with water, grease, perfume and cosmetics.
Polish your leather gently with a natural-coloured soft woollen cloth. Do not use any other cleaning product without consulting your leather specialist.
Do not wipe your bag if it is wet. Absorb the water by dabbing gently with a fine woollen cloth.
You can remove pomaded marking with unscented talcum powder. Dust this on the mark and leave overnight. Brush this off gently the next morning with a clean or new makeup brush.
Minor scratches can be worn off through the gentle circular movement of your finger. The finger used is to be free of grease or moisture.
Do not attempt to repair serious damage yourself. Consult a specialist.

Facts and General Rules:

Extensive exposure to light or fluorescents will result in a change of colour in light coloured leather, with extreme reference to white leather bags.
Prolonged contact with denim and other dark-coloured materials may cause ‘migration’, in which the dark pigmentation irreversibly penetrates the light leather it touches.
