How To Care For Your DIOSA Bags

Similar to us, your products need a skincare routine to prevent drying and cracking.

Consider treating your bags as part of your self-care routine. You’ll hold onto your favourite products longer and contribute less waste to our planet. 

It’s a win-win for everyone!

We want you and your DIOSA products to enjoy a long meaningful life together, so we partnered with eco-friendly cleaning supply brand, Walter’s, to bring you quality products that will keep your bags looking fab for years to come. 

Walter's products are:

  • Eco-friendly

Caring for Vegan Leather

Taking care of your vegan leather bag is super simple! We want your bag to last a really long time so follow these skincare routines.

Moisturize

To prevent your vegan leather from cracking, moisturize it each month with an eco-friendly conditioner such as Walter's Vegan Leather Shine using a clean white or microfibre cloth. 

Polish

Not only does this eco-friendly spray restore the shine in your vegan leather bag but Walter's Vegan Leather Shine also helps remove dirt and stains.

Helpful tip: Keep the inside of your bag clean by using pouches for makeup, pens and other every day carry items.

Touch Ups

Keep these eco-friendly wipes on hand to help quickly remove dust, dirt and stains when you’re on the go.

Regular Wear and Tear

We understand how easy it is to overstuff your bag but be mindful of the weight you carry in your bag to prevent stress on the straps and seams.

Storing Vegan Leather Bags

Yes, even your bag may need some down time to rejuvenate. When you’re giving your vegan leather bag some much needed R&R, place it in a protector bag to keep it dust-free. You can use the protective sleeve that came around your bag when it arrived.

Store it in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight and humidity. Don’t keep it in there too long as it will need to come out for air once in awhile!

Because our vegan leather is lightweight, we recommend stuffing your bag with old clothes or repurpose any paper you have on hand to help it maintain its shape while being stored.

DO NOT store in plastic or vinyl bags.

Caring for Eco-friendly Genuine Leather

DIOSA's Eco-friendly Genuine Leather Bags: Maya Mini

Our eco-friendly genuine leather uses the environmentally friendly process of vegetable tanning. This tanning process uses non-toxic, organic and natural materials derived from the barks, leaves and branches of trees and plants.

Leather is affected by everyday elements, much like our own skin. Affects on leather can include drying, aging, sunlight, humidity, and general wear.

Here's a skincare routine to treat your bag and prolong its longevity...

Prevent Stains

Protect your Maya Mini and other genuine leather goods from liquids and stains with Leather Eco Protect from Walter's.

For Dry & Dull Leather

Excessive exposure to sunlight or high heat can dry out leather. To keep the leather strong and prevent cracking, treat it with an eco-friendly water-based cleaner and conditioner as required. You can get this conditioner in Walter's Leather Care Kit.

Blemishes

Our eco-friendly, vegetable tanned leather is free from harmful chemical finishes, so you can expect to see scratches and marks. No problem! Most scratches can be rubbed out using your finger.

You can also use a cleaning cloth, a moisturizer and a protector to remove the leather’s blemishes. 

Freshen Up

The eco-friendly wipes mentioned above in the Vegan Leather Care section work great for leather, as well. Tuck these in your Maya Mini to help quickly remove dust, dirt and stains when you’re out and about.

Spa Day for Your Bag!

If you’re using your bag daily, schedule a spa day every couple of weeks. The

Leather Care Kit is all you need to keep your bag looking its best.

Helpful tip: Just like we mentioned in the Caring for Vegan Leather section above, keep the inside of your bag clean by using pouches for makeup, pens and other every day carry items.
