We make products that are designed to last a really long time. Here are some tips on taking care of the leather and fabric on your bag.
1. LOOKING AFTER YOUR LEATHER
Each and every hide we use is unique – with its own natural marks and variations in tone. Over time, the leather will take on a warmer, softer look. To keep your leather looking tip-top, you can clean it occasionally with a neutral, natural leather-care cream (like Nikwax® Conditioner for Leather™).
2. KEEPING YOUR FABRIC FABULOUS
Troubadour fabrics can be kept fresh by wiping them with a clean, slightly damp white cloth. To remove light marks, use a clean white cloth dipped in mild soapy water. Let the fabric dry naturally, away from direct heat or sunlight.
Our fabrics are treated with a Durable Water-Repellent finish (DWR), which keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated with water. When rain ceases to bead on the fabric, it’s a sign that water repellency is fading and re-proofing is required. To increase the water repellency of your bag, we recommend re-proofing the fabric using Nikwax® Tent & Gear SolarProof®.
