Great care is taken to ensure that every Willow Tree product is of the highest quality and designed for passionate individuals who are mindful and understand that less is more.

Leather

Genuine leather is sourced locally and each skin is handpicked.  Leather is like a landscape with varying textures and patterns. Thus, each piece will be unique in shade with its own natural markings.

 

Leather Care:

Remove light marks immediately with a damp sponge.

For best results use a leather cleaner as directed.

Treat with a leather conditioner.

Avoid wearing with jeans/clothing that are not colour fast as dye stuff may transfer on to your bag.

Do not leave in the sun as colour can fade.

Remember light shades of leather will show the dirt and thus need extra care and cleaning.
