Handbag care

NONA bags are made of soft leather with a natural grain. Because leather is a natural product, it is subject to small imperfections, like scars and grains. And because our bags are all handmade, each bag is a 100% unique. 

Please keep in mind that leather is sensitive to light, heat and liquids. If your bag is wet from the rain, give it time to dry naturally; don’t expose it to sunlight or dry it in front of the heating. Color and feel of the leather may change over time.

For smooth leathers; use a damp cloth to clean your bag every so often. If you have a stain, try to remove it using a cotton cloth or tissue and clean with a damp cloth afterwards. To keep the leather supple and prevent it from drying out, use a small amount of colorless leather wax to condition your bag every 2 months or so. 

Suede and nubuck leathers need a different treatment; there are special suede + nubuck brushes and cleaning sticks available to maintain the leather and to help with stains.  

It's advised to apply a protectant spray before using your bag for the first time. There are waterproof and dirt repellent sprays available for different types of leather. For our grained and semi-vegetable tanned leathers we advise a spray for smooth leather. For our nubuck bags you're advised to use a spray for suede + nubuck. Always try out on a small (back) part of the bag to see how the spray effects the leather. Repeat using a protectant spray about every 6 weeks. 

Jewelry care

To prevent from oxidation, store your silver jewelry in a cool, dry place. Use your jewelry bag to keep the jewelry protected. Please keep in mind that they are delicate pieces, handle with care.
