Impregnate leather

You can impregnate the leather with suitable care products (dirt and UV protection), but this is not absolutely necessary. In addition, you should not expose your product to extreme sources of light or heat and protect it from bruises and frictions.

Let dry

If you get into a rain shower with your bag or backpack, this is not a problem, but you should not put your companion on a heater to dry, for example. This makes the leather brittle. Better wipe the raindrops with a soft cloth and place the bag or backpack in a warm room.

Remove scratches

Each leather part is an individual natural product and can therefore have traces or even minor scratches. Especially after a demanding journey, it is a good place to take care of the leather, just take some leather oil (alternatively also olive oil), a cloth or a small sponge, moisten the cloth or sponge slightly and make sure that it does not get too wet. Then gently pat the oil on the spot and rub it in. The oil causes the spot to darken slightly and so the scratch is no longer visible. This effect also enhances the individual look and charm of your bag.

Clean your favorite piece

From time to time you should wipe the canvas fabric with a damp cloth so that dirt cannot be permanently stuck in the fabric. You can remove light dirt with a brush, stains with a damp sponge and some soft soap. Please be careful not to use too hot water when cleaning, as this may affect the wax layer of the canvas. Our products are not suitable for washing machine.

You should occasionally remove the leather from dirt particles with a soft brush or with a soft, misty cloth.

Remove wrinkles

If larger wrinkles have formed on the canvas, you can iron them out comfortably. Ideally, place a piece of paper or fabric between the iron and your NORDLICHT product so as not to damage the waxed canvas. Moisten the canvas a little before ironing and do not set the iron too hot.

Cutting the thread

Our products are all handmade. Since it can happen occasionally that a thread at the seams has not been cut off. However, this does not mean that your product is broken. Here, too, the simplest option is: Self is the woman! (Or the man!). Just grab your nail scissors from the bathroom and carefully cut off the thread.

Request spare parts

The design, function, material and workmanship of our products are geared towards longevity. If you use your favorite piece very often, it can happen that you lose a buckle or a riener. But this is not a problem at all – you can still contact us years after your purchase and we will send you the necessary spare parts free of charge.
