For optimal protection, we recommend giving the leather a neutral / uncoloured leather conditioner. The treatment will make the skin slightly darker, but protects the bag from stains and shields caused by water and oil. Leather balm removes / minimize the texture of the raw buffalo skin (worn look) and gives a more uniform expression.
NOTE! Untreated leather bags can give color if the leather gets wet and comes in contact with light fabrics and / or textiles. Please note that excessive heat, water and humidity may fuse dyes to bleed or fade.
