Product Care

Product care

At The British Belt Company, we use only the finest hides. You should care for your leather from the moment of purchase. 

Not only does leather change and develop a patina over time, but each hide is completely different from the last. Leather may contain natural blemishes and occasional imperfections. This is all part of its charm! Despite this, we recommend using a leather care product to clean and protect your leather good from general wear and superficial marks. Our carefully-curated collection of Collonil products suit the leather found in our range; from bags, to belts and accessories. Please review our guide below to find the perfect product to care for your leather:

General Product Care

We advise you should avoid running smooth leathers against sharp surfaces to minimise scratching.

Try to keep your leather accessories away from water or heavy rainfall. However, if your item does get wet, remove any excess water with paper towels, stuff the bag to retain shape and allow it to dry naturally. To prevent colour fading, try to avoid leaving your leather accessories in direct sunlight. Try to not rub coloured leathers against light coloured clothing, as this can transfer onto the fabric. Whilst avoid rubbing dark coloured clothing against light coloured leathers. As a general rule we would recommend you do not overfill your bags, as this can lose their shape.
