The Nevis bag is handcrafted with top quality full-grain leather. In addition to looking and feeling luxurious, our leather is made to stand the test of time; it certainly does not need to be babied. Still, there are little things that can be done to help keep the Nevis in like-new condition for many, many years to come. Here are a few leather care tips we found on Carryology.com. To summarize the article as it applies to the Nevis: 1) If the bag gets wet, let it air off at room temperature; 2) Use your favorite leather dressing or cream occasionally to help keep it conditioned; 3) If the leather gets dirty, clean it with a damp cloth; 4) Keep in mind that leather has a tendency to stretch a bit with time; 5) Avoid keeping your bag wrapped in plastic for extended periods – the dust bag that’s included with your purchase is a great place to store the bag when it’s not in use. Enjoy!
