Leather Care & Tips

We take great pride of selecting every skins carefully. To this day, we still don’t have a preference between Smooth or Pebble leather. We really enjoy working with both styles, for their different aspect and particularity.  We love our locally sources Pebble leather for its soft-rich-grained-texture and our Smooth leather for its classic and refined look.

Patina & Aging Process

Theres is no denied, scratching can happen.  But happily, in the Flechr Family , we do not view these « little accidents » as defects. Au contraire!…we find that it adds a certain "Personnel Signature" to our Designer’s creation and makes it even more unique!

We believe that natural aging of leather, is and will always be, the best and easiest way to protect your Flechr products. This is why we often recommend to let your bag age naturally, for it to develop a beautiful Patina.

If you wish to keep the skin hydrated, you can occasionally (once every 3-4 years), treat the leather using a water base leather conditioner. Send us an email, or simply bring your bags directly to Kimberly when she’s on the road attending art shows and fashion events. She always carry a little bottle of leather care wax in her Backpack!

Self-care

For any type of leather and colors, we do recommend avoiding long period of direct sun/rain exposure, abrasive surfaces and dark denim, as the leather could be subject to color transfer or stains.

In case of emergency, the best option is to take your bag to a local trusted leather goods repair shop in your area.
