General care for bags

Melete Uses Finest Natural leather. This means, leather surface is sensitive to water, humidity, intense light and scratch. Surface will create nice patina in time as you wear, this is the beauty of Vege-tanned leather products. While we maintain consistency in overall quality of our products, and variations in leather are entirely normal and are true characteristics of natural leather. Hence each bag is individually unique.

Hardware – Made in 100 % solid bronze without plating. Surface color will darken in time. However it is entirely possible to polish back to its original state by your self.
