For colorfastness and protection of the leather, you can use a stain and water-resistant spray for leather such as Collonil Carbon Pro Spray, Scotch Guard, Kiwi or Fiebing, should you want to make the leather water-resistant. Test any leather treatment on a small area of the bag and follow instructions carefully to prevent any damage to your piece. Should your leather bag get wet, the best thing to do is get rid of the water stain before it has time to set. Using a clean, lint-free cloth, soak in as much water as you can by dabbing and not wiping. Allow the bag to dry normally without artificial heat or excessive sunlight. After drying, if the water stain remains, a leather cleaner such as our leather serum can help minimize the water stain. Test any leather treatment on a small area of the bag and follow instructions carefully to prevent any damage to your piece. (Using a leather conditioner may darken the overall appearance of your leather bag, so you may want to clean and condition the entire leather bag based on the severity of the water stain.) For general care of your tote in keeping the leather replenished, supple, and soft you can condition your bag with a leather conditioner such as our leather serum. This leather conditioner can be used as often as desired to refresh your leather bag.

How It's Made

As they move through fields of coffee, wheat, and sorghum, Ethiopian farmers scan the ground for a very different harvest—artillery shells from former conflicts. Local craftsmen melt the shells down to create beautiful beads, then transport the beads to women in Addis Ababa who string them into beautiful accessories. Additionally, handmade leather styles empower marginalized and vulnerable youth living in the city by creating dignified employment opportunities. Their Artisans include former street youth who have been able to transform their lives through intensive training and education. The business harnesses locally sourced materials to create beautiful, high-quality products.
