The Art of Leather Care

You just purchased that incredible leather bag you’ve been eyeing for quite some time. You’re overjoyed and can’t wait to use it everyday. However, there is one thing that matters most when purchasing leather bags, totes, purses or wallets — leather care! Caring for leather goods is important for several reasons:

Enhance Leather’s Durability

Being a natural material, leather can last for many years if properly cared for. It is important for your handmade leather goods to have regular maintenance and cleaning to help prevent drying out, cracking, or deteriorating, thus prolonging their lifespan.

Keep Up Your Leather’s Appearance

The overall beauty and elegance of leather enhances your style, whether it's a Lazarus Artisan Goods tote, wallet, purse or home decor item. Proper care helps maintain the leather's natural luster, suppleness, and color, ensuring that your leather goods continue to look their best.

Handmade Leather Goods are an Investment

Purchasing high-quality leather goods can be a significant investment. Taking care of them ensures that you get the most value out of your purchase. By keeping your Lazarus Artisan Goods leather product in top condition, you can use them for a lifetime, or potentially resell or pass down your items in the future.

Maintain Leather for Comfort

Well-maintained handmade leather tends to be more comfortable to use. It becomes softer and more pliable over time. Neglected leather can become stiff, uncomfortable, and even develop unpleasant odors.

Leather Care is Protection

Continuous or heavy use of your Lazarus Artisan Goods handmade leather product makes it more susceptible to damage from various sources such as dirt, moisture, sunlight, and scratches. Proper care includes applying protective products like Chamberlain’s Leather Care products, which create a barrier against potential harm.
