FAQ- Frequently Asked Questions
Leather is a natural product that can have a stronger smell, especially when it is new. However, this disappears automatically after a while. Our vintage style leather bags are also vegetable tanned, as we do not want to use any environmentally harmful substances. Vegetable tanning does not completely neutralize odors. It helps to use the bag regularly, to air it out or to fill it with scented sachets. Another tip is to put the bag in a box of newsprint overnight, as the paper can absorb unwanted odors.
Slight irregularities in color and structure are based on the naturalness of leather and are a typical quality feature. The bags from our vintage collection will also darken over time. When processing leather, we pay particular attention to high quality standards in order to guarantee a breathable and supple surface – free of carcinogenic or allergenic chemicals. Thanks to this elaborate process, distinctive pieces with an individual touch are created in our environmentally friendly vintage leather collection.
Leather care products are easy to find online or in the supermarket. It is important to note that all Berliner Bags products are made of smooth leather. We recommend you to use wax-based leather balms or waterproof sprays. Apply the selected leather care product with a lint-free cloth and rub it in gently in a circular motion. In general it is recommended to carry out a full leather cleaning once a year and to remove accumulated dirt in order to freshen up the leather. Full leather cleaning can be carried out with leather care products or leather cleaning kits. You can find more tips on leather care here: https://berliner-bags.com/leathercare/
Leather is naturally water-repellent. However, it is not recommended to expose leather bags to direct moisture for long periods of time. If you want to make your leather bag a little more waterproof, you can treat it with waterproof sprays.
