BASIC INFORMATION, Leather INFORMATION

Always treat leather and suede with the care and respect that a luxury product deserves.

 

BASIC INFORMATION

Treat your Koza product with water protectant every 2-4 weeks. We recommend weather-proofing spray, which is quick & easy maintenance. Be zealous during rainy season! Try to avoid heavy downpours because leather is permeable and can never be entirely waterproof.

Clean & condition every 8-12 weeks, using high-quality leather conditioner (follow instructions on product label). Think of conditioning like moisturizer for your leather – it will dry out over time, and conditioner will maintain the moisture. Also, avoid leaving your bag in direct sunlight, which may change the colour of your product.

 

TIPS

1. Be aware that deep or dark colored clothing can easily transfer dye to light- coloured Bags. Use caution and especially avoid carrying your product when wearing new clothes
2. When not in use, store your bag in its original dustbag away from moisture & variations of heat or cold.
3. Never apply heat to your Koza product to dry it, just let it dry naturally (away from radiators, too!). Direct heat will dry out the leather & it may become brittle.
4. When using leather treatments, always test the product in an inconspicuous area of your bag first before applying to the entire bag.

 

LEATHER INFORMATION

Sometimes, your bag might have a scratch or a spot when you receive it, but don’t worry; this is normal: Our products are composed of leathers which are tanned using natural or biological (organic) solutions, and virtually unsealed at the end of the tanning process.

We choose to work with this Leather not only because of its safe for the people and planet, but also because it gives Koza products our trademark vintage look. The unsealed leather allows scratches to accumulate, and the gentle tanning solutions allow natural marks in the hide to show. We consider any scratch or mark that is visible to be beautiful and completely natural.

We want all our customers to be pleased with their Koza products. It is important to realize that the marks and scratches are intended, and will further develop with time and use.

 

 

 

 

COLOR

Due to the natural process in which our leathers are made, the colors can vary from time to time. The photos we use on our website are intended to be as closely matched as possible to the true product, so that you know what to expect when your order a Koza product. However, we also acknowledge that all computer monitors display colors with some variety as well. Therefore, we will not be able to exercise true control over the color accuracy.

Please contact us if you are not happy with the color of your Koza product, and we will do our best to advise whether you should exchange or return your product.
