Wipe your bag clean using a soft, dampened, white dust cloth. 
Do not rub your leather item with anything coarse or abrasive.  
Only use specialised leather care products to clean dirt or stains (we recommend colour lock leather cleaner). 
Never use solvents or household cleaning products on leather. 
Avoid contact with water, grease, perfumes or cosmetics.  
Store your leather item in a well ventilated, moisture free area when not in use. 
Avoid over-exposure to extreme heat, moisture or direct sunlight. 
Should your leather item get wet, wipe dry with a soft white cloth. 
Condition leather with a specialised leather cleaner (we recommend colour lock fade-guard leather conditioner) to maintain softness and suppleness. 

Avoid contact with delicate or light coloured garments as some leathers may shed some colour.

Tonal variations or marks are natural features of the leather, as every leather hide is unique. 

Here at the Empire of Genius we love creating pieces of art for you. When adored and looked after by you, your Empire of Genius piece will have a long life and grow more handsome with age.
