As a brand manufacturer and leather expert, at STILORD we are here to tell you everything you need to know about leather care. For any questions you have about your leather bag, we have created this guide just for you, so that your new bag stays more beautiful than ever. One of the most important tips for caring for your leather bag is waterproofing it. Treatment with colourless waterproof sprays is a great way to protect it from any moisture and dirt - whether it is smooth leather or suede.

Important tips when waterproofing:

Applying it evenly:

It is important to waterproof the entire leather surface as evenly as possible.

Allowing it time:

Leave the waterproofed leather bag slightly standing so that the agent is completely absorbed. Only then can you achieve the desired water-repellent effect. Say goodbye to unpleasant water stains!

Ensuring it is clean:

Make sure you remove any coarse dirt before waterproofing.

Waterproofing your leather bag not only protects it against rain, but also against sunlight. Waterproofing can prevent the bag from fading caused by UV rays. This way, the colour of the bag will last even longer - Insider tip - Grease is not just for cleaning!

If individual areas of your leather bag start to become dry, and therefore, brittle over time due to intense wear, we also recommend using a leather grease, which you can buy either online or in pharmacies. Using a soft cloth helps to apply the leather grease gently and helps to optimally clean and nourish your leather bag.

This combined with waterproofing gives your bag an effective and all-round protection.

Genuine leather needs good care. That’s why we recommend our colourless leather balm with beeswax, which is perfect for all smooth leather products. It acts as a cleaning agent for accessories such as bags, belts, boots and shoes; as a care agent for car seats, leather steering wheels and motorcycle clothing; as a polish for furniture and leather sofas, as well as for treating leather clothing, leather trousers and leather jackets.

The STILORD Universal leather wax is a true all-rounder for all leather products that deserve the best care! Treat your bag regularly with this product to protect, waterproof and to keep the material soft. You can also find mild leather cleaners for suede in specialist stores, which comes as a spray or foam.

Enough theory – Here’s how to clean your leather bag:

Theory is no use without practice. There are a few tricks that you should pay close attention to when cleaning your leather bag.

Experience has shown that it is always best to follow the instructions on the packaging and apply the respective agent carefully in a small and discreet area (e.g. at the bottom of the bag) to avoid unwanted darkening or other changes in colour. You should follow this advice both when greasing and when waterproofing.

How should you clean and care for real leather? Here are some useful tips!

  • Waterproofing: This is the first and most important step and recommended by brand manufacturer STILORD! You can findspecial sprays for suede and smooth leather in specialist stores
  • Leather balm with beeswax: It’s cheap, widely available, and very versatile - it’s our secret tip for smooth leather!
  • For coarse dirt: Gently remove dirt and stains with a soft brush and, if necessary, a little water
  • Suede can be demanding: Be careful with fats and soaps - if possible, only clean with special brushes
  • Be mindful with soaps: Too much acid damages the leather - please be careful!
  • Allow enough time to dry: Preferably in the fresh air
  • Practical tip: Apply any leather care slowly, gently, and start in a discreet place
