Make leather last
A leather garment is a long-term investment and set to remain chic for seasons and years ahead. With the right care, leather can stay soft and supple for longer and even improve with age. A little wear looks great, as long as your leather gets the love it deserves every so often. You already know you bought a beautifull vintage item so it is extra important to take good care of the leather As they are natural materials, it’s important to keep leather and suede away from humidity, heat or chemicals. You should also condition your pieces once in a while with a leatherdressing to keep them nourished and smooth.
To get rid of light stains, simply wipe the garment with a slightly damp cloth and remember that leather and suede should always be air-dried at normal room temperature. Otherwise, we recommend that leather is taken to a specialist leather dry cleaner.
Start by raiding your kitchen for some baking soda and mix with a little water to create a paste. Use a small brush, like a toothbrush, to scrub the paste onto stains on your clothes. Wipe off with cloth or towel. Repeat for really stubborn stains.
Our home remedies don’t stop there. Baking soda can also help to neutralise odour. Put the past onto the parts of the armpits. Leave them for a couple of hours and put them into the washingmachine.
Still some stains? Sunlight is a cure of nature. Lay the item a couple of hours in direct sunlight and she will do the trick (hopefully).
Dear delicates & wools

Hang your garments in the bathroom while you are taking a nice shower will work as well. You also can buy a fabric sprays which is a handy tool for keeping your clothes fresh between launderings.
Experiencing a stain-on-silk-shirt type of situation? Try using a gentle (and ecological) baby wipe. It’s a safe way to keep the dry cleaning bills to a minimum. Make sure to test on a small area first.
Bag it up. Store your delicates in a bag separate from the rest of your laundry – the best way to avoid an unfortunate mix-up. Oh, and make sure to use a mesh laundry bag for your most precious pieces.
