If your Kompanero piece sustains any marks or dirt, we recommend wiping with a clean, damp cloth (microfibres are best). Please avoid any household soaps or cleaning agents that are not designed specifically for leather care.
We also recommend using a leather conditioning cream every three to six months to prevent cracking and general wear and tear. These should be used to treat the entire item at the same time – please avoid spot-cleaning.
Should your companion piece become wet, please do not use a heat source (eg. hairdryer) on the item; simply wipe with a clean, dry cloth and allow to dry naturally at room temperature. You may wish to place the item on a clean cloth to prevent any colour transfer.
When storing, it is best to use the natural cotton dust bag provided with your purchase and avoid placing in plastic and/or direct sunlight.
As leather is a natural product derived from animal hides, slight variations in the texture and colour should not be considered a ‘fault’, but instead an inherent quality, completely typical to the product itself.
Each Kompanero piece is unique and designed to age differently – natural wear and tear is completely normal and may include slight changes in leather texture and colour over time.
