Tips how to take care of leather bags and other leather items!

EpicLeather classically designed, authentically styled, vintage look, hand crafted genuine long-lasting leather bags and journals and other beautiful items made from leather by EpicLinen!

Each piece of leather might have unique scratches, scars and discolorations which add specific characteristics to natural handmade leather bag

Few tips how to take care of genuine leather bags and other goods made from leather: 
  • Small scratches can be removed by rubbing them gently with your finger. The natural oils on your hands will work nicely into the leather. 
  • For larger scratches and marks apply a tiny amount of oil to the mark. Let it soak in for a few minutes. The excess should be wiped away with a clean soft cloth. At first you should always test any cream or oil on a small area of the bag before placing a bigger amount.
  • The new bag will give special leather odour which is very common and natural to leather goods. If the smell is a little overwhelming, better to add a small nice sachet to the leather bag filled for example with lavender petals etc. Keep it for a few days, that should be helpful to reduce the odour. 
  • Small drop of baby oil, olive oil or even an essential oil might assist to lessen the smell as well. Take a clean soft cloth and wipe evenly over the bag.

 Hello new week!

Some of you already know, some of you - don't. 
Today I would like to represent our still brand new line EpicLeather which we have launched about a month ago!

EpicLinen and EpicLeather are two our trademarks now!
We are so proud of them! :)

Briefly about EpicLeather brand!
EpicLinen Team - that is myself and my husband both are focused only on natural, genuine products that fulfil a function, are comfortable and will stand the test of time!

EpicLeather sells only genuine handcrafted various designs and styles leather bags and journals. Bags and journals, notebooks, guest books including photo albums are classically designed, authentically styled goat, buffalo and camel leather production.

The leather used for these bags is non-chemically treated and dye free. The leather retains distinctive earthy leather’s smell that evaporates away with days of use. Natural oil is primed once to accent natural scars, scratches, burns. All those features make bag unique in design. Oil protected leather is a subject to water resistance. The more is used, the softer, flexible and durable it becomes.  

What is more important – looks better with age, regular use as the leather softens and deepens in color!

Take your time to look around! 

Enjoy the time at our boutique!
