A little bit of TLC will keep your White Stuff leatherware looking great for years to come. Here are a few tips from us. If you have any questions about caring for your leather goodies, just leave a comment on the product page or contact our Customer Care team.
Take care not to over-fill your bag as it may lose its form and you could damage the handles.
Colour fastness can't be guaranteed on suede or leather pieces. Avoid contact between them and paler materials.
Wear with Care
Bags embellished with beads and sequins are especially delicate.
Wet, Wet, Wet
Leave wet handbags to dry naturally, never use artificial heat. Stuffing your bag with paper will help maintain the shape of your bag as it dries. In the event of suede or leather becoming wet during wear, avoid contact with light materials as colour transfer may occur.
Before cleaning, make sure the item is dry and remove any dirt.
Due to the fine nature of suede pieces, extra care should be taken when cleaning. Gentle use of a suede brush will remove most stains. Regular use of a protector spray will help provide invisible protection against rain, water and staining. Protector spray will help with water resistance but it will not make your item waterproof. When using protector spray, test on a small area first and always read
Prevention is better than cure when it comes to suede and leather. Regular use of a protector spray will help provide invisible protection to guard against rain, water and staining. It will help with water resistance but it will not make your item completely waterproof (wellies are the only solution when it's tipping it down). Test the protector spray on a small area first and always read the label.
Keep it Clean
Suede can be delicate, so clean it carefully with a special suede brush.
Rain, Rain go Away
Colour fastness cannot be guaranteed on suede or leather pieces. Avoid contact with paler materials (pale-coloured socks, for example). Definitely avoid contact with light materials if your suede or leather shoes get wet. Leave wet shoes to dry naturally, never use artificial heat. Use a shoe tree or stuff them with paper to help maintain the shape of your shoes as they dry.
On certain styles there are 'top pieces' on heels (heel caps) and these are a replaceable component. Don't allow them to wear down as this could result in damaging the rest of the heel. They should be replaced regularly by a reputable cobbler.
Save our Soles
Leather soles are a natural product and give a premium, luxury finish to a shoe. However, leather soles are porous in wet conditions. To maintain the life of your soles, it's best not to wear them in the rain or wet conditions. To prolong the life and wear of leather soles, we also recommend that fine half-rubber soles are fitted. This can be done at most cobblers.
Shoes embellished with beads and sequins are especially delicate. Please take particular care when wearing, as scuffing may occur.
