Let’s care leather bag! There are care guides, recommendations, and instructions to maintain your MUJIL handcrafted bags. Our primary materials are calfskin, lambskin, cow, and crocodile leather which are strong durable, and high-quality. Decorated with premium handcrafted Thai textiles. MUJIL leather handbags require an occasional treatment, likewise any leather product.

Leather Care

MUJIL handbags are natural skin elements, you need to take care of them like human skin. Likewise, they need a bath, cleaning, and careful care to make them shine as new for long their lifetime usage.

Here are tricks to maintaining and caring for each kind of leather:

Calf Leather

Calfskin leather is known for its high resistance and stickiness. The textures of calfskin leather are soft and smooth. So, you need to be careful with sunlight and avoid storing calf leather direct under daylight or heat. Moreover, clean it with a soft brush or cloth, and you can apply a leather conditioner to retain moisture on calf leather.

Suede Lambskin

Lambskin is very luxurious and soft. That is to say, it is considered the finest leather. The surface of suede lambskin leather can be quite delicate, so it is more difficult to maintain. We suggest cleaning suede lambskin with a soft fabric and slowly wiping the stain out. Please note that, don’t scrub it and don’t use any liquids or water to clean it. Furthermore, we recommend avoiding dark denim or other dark cloth to clean light-colored skin since the color from those dark fabrics can be easily transferred into lambskin leather. Likewise, for calf leather, we advise you not to store suede lambskin leather under sunray directly and heat.

Crocodile Leather

While crocodile leather may be very beautiful and feel luxurious to look at, another hand, crocodile leather is also delicate like other kinds of leather that require delicate leather care to stay in shape. The crocodile leather is not waterproof, you need to make it dry quickly by using the white surface if it is excessively wet, clean it up with a cloth until most of the moisture is gone. We recommend you keep it in an indoor location away from sunlight and direct heat.

“In general, any dust, or spot stain can be wiped gently with a soft dry fabric or damp light-colored cloth, then dried immediately. Anyway, you can use your finger to wipe any stain spot. It is an easy way to the care of your bags.”

General Attention

The finite leather and premium Thai fabric usually have approximately 5-10 years of a lifetime depending on usage, care, and maintenance.

To ensure their longevity, we recommend the following:

  • Keep your bags away from direct heat and sunlight
  • Keep your bags dry from the excessive water and rain.
  • Avoid any contact with perfumes, solvents, make-up, chemical, and alcohol.
  • Avoid contact with coarse or abrasive materials to protect leather bags from scratches.

  • Take specific care of light-colored bags, do not let them soiled as they are more difficult to clean.
  • Rub your finger over the area of any marking to minimize them, until the natural oils in your skin condition the leather.
  • Do not use any leather cleaner or chemist conditioner directly on skin leather because it will stain the leather surface.
