Tip #2 Avoid contact with coloured materials. Some materials, especially denim, fade over time and lose their colour which may rub off onto your wallet.
Tip #3 Don't keep your wallet in the rain, ensure it is tucked away in your pocket where it can stay dry. Also ensure it is kept away and dry from washing up areas and basins as soapy waters can damage and stain the leather. If the product becomes wet, wipe away the excess moisture and leave to dry naturally at room temperature. Never dry with a direct heat source such as a fireplace or hair dryer.
Tip #4 To moisturise your leather, apply a small amount of a Hentley leather conditioner to the leathers surface. Apply using a clean, white, cotton cloth every 3 months. For more instructions on application please see our conditioner.
Tip #5 We recommend keeping them away from makeup, food, or other oil based products which can penetrate the natural fibers of the leather and potentially stain the wallet.
Tip #6 Remember leather stretches out but not in. Don't over load your wallets as this can have a permanent effect on its hold capacity and it won't be able to return to its designed shape. Simply carry only what you need to so your wallet continuously functions how you want it to.
Tip #7 Your wallet needs to breathe. Don't wrap it in plastic or any other material that prevents air flow. We want to prevent mildew growth here so make sure your wallet is ventilated.
