Handmade from quality full-grain leather, in our Woodstock Studio, Dyad creations celebrate the beauty of natural imperfections.
A light wax finish enhances the look and feel of the leather, offering a protective barrier that guards against scratching and stains. This gentle finish encourages the leather's individual character to shine through, making each creation truly one-of-a-kind.
To ensure your Dyad creation ages gracefully, it's essential to keep it dry and clean. Minimize prolonged exposure to water or moisture, as these elements can compromise the leather's texture and colour vibrancy.
While our leather is designed to withstand everyday life, it's best to avoid contact with grease, oil, or wax, as these substances can leave lasting stains. By doing this you can preserve your piece's appearance for years to come.
You are also welcome to visit our shop/studio with one of your Project Dyad pieces. We will gladly give your bag some love and treat it with one of our leather creams for a refreshed look.
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR DYAD LEATHER BAG AT HOME
Before applying any leather product, start by gently dusting and cleaning your item with a soft damp cloth or sponge. Allow it to air-dry naturally before proceeding. It's always a good idea to test any leather care product in a discreet, inconspicuous area before widespread use. Some products may alter the leather's colour or texture, and this precaution ensures your piece retains its original look and feel.
We recommend using a quality leather cream like FAMA ECO. This nourishing cream not only enhances the leather's suppleness but also acts as a protective shield against the elements. Regular application of FAMA ECO will help maintain the leather's natural sheen and lustre, ensuring your Dyad creation remains a loved companion for years to come.
By treating your leather piece with love and respect, you're investing in its beauty and longevity. Like any well-loved possession, proper care enhances the legacy and character of your Dyad creation.
HOW TO STORE YOUR DYAD LEATHER BAG
Proper storage is essential to maintaining the pristine condition of your Dyad leather creation.
Here are some valuable tips:
Dust Bag or Cloth: When your leather piece is not in use, consider storing it in a dust bag or a soft, breathable cloth. This safeguard helps shield it from dust, light, and potential scratches, preserving its finish and texture.
Avoid Direct Sunlight: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause fading and discolouration of leather. To prevent this, store your piece away from sunlight and intense artificial light sources.
Keep it Upright: If possible, store your leather bag upright to maintain its shape. For crossbody or sling bags, keep the straps unbuckled to avoid creasing.
Ventilation: Allow your leather creation to breathe. Avoid using airtight containers or plastic bags for storage, as leather needs proper airflow to maintain its quality.
Cool and Dry Location: Choose a cool, dry area for storage. Humidity and extreme temperatures can impact the leather's integrity over time.
Rotation: If you own multiple leather pieces, consider rotating their usage. This prevents one item from experiencing excessive wear and helps extend the lifespan of all your pieces.
Stuffing: To maintain shape, lightly stuff your leather bag with acid-free tissue paper or a soft cloth. Avoid using newspaper, as the ink can transfer onto the leather.
Hooks or Hangers: Avoid hanging your leather bags on hooks or hangers, as this can distort the shape of the straps or handles.
Remember, proper storage practices contribute significantly to your leather creation's longevity. By implementing these tips, you're ensuring that your Dyad piece will remain with you for years to come.
