Handbag Care

Sarah Haran Accessories create beautiful leather bags from the most carefully chosen and finest natural leathers. The leather used is of the highest quality, and always from reputable, ethical sources.

Different leathers age in different ways and some are more delicate than others. The beauty of leather is that it ages beautifully and acquires a vintage patina. Look after your handbag and it will last a lifetime.  As a general rule, you should take care to avoid rubbing delicate, smooth or patent leather types against rough or sharp surfaces to minimise scratching. Should your handbag get wet remove any residual water immediately with a paper towel, pack loosely with paper and allow it to dry naturally. Do not place the handbag on a heat source, just let it air dry. Regularly dust or brush with a soft brush, or wipe clean with a slightly damp cloth. You can use cleaners or polishers (such as Collonil) but make sure you stick to the manufacturer’s instructions and always test product in a small non visible area as we cannot guarantee the result.

If you have any specific query about the leathers we use or caring for your product please contact us at hello@sarahharan.com

Wear & Tear

Handbags will develop wear & tear depending on how often you use your handbag. Following the instructions above will help maintain the beauty. Although our handbags are made with a great deal of care and attention you can expect wear and tear to occur. Key areas will be the back of the handbag and corners of the bag where natural rub has occurred. This is normal wear and tear and we do offer a service to spruce up your handbag. This service does depend on the state of the handbag and we would assess it and advise you what can be done. In some cases there may be a charge associated for our craftsman to rectify wear and tear. 

Repairs

All our bags carry a lifetime guarantee from the date of purchase. If within this period you detect a fault, the bag will be repaired or, if necessary, replaced at no extra cost. (An original proof of purchase will be required). We also offer a repairs service for bags that have been hurt due to excessive wear and tear for a fee. Please email us at hello@sarahharan.com so we can arrange an assessment.
