- Chemicals will weaken the leather over time. Be patient. Its ruggedness will grow in character with you.
- Don't be afraid of a scuff. Lick your finger. Rub it in. The oils from your skin shape the patina's look over time. So go ahead. Handle it!
- Avoid leaving leather for extended periods of time in direct sunlight or extreme heat. We recommend Rustico's Custom Designed Leather Cleaner for additional leather cleaning and conditioning.
I bought this bag for my wife. She is a 2nd grade teacher and wanted a bag that she could use to and from work. She had been on a hopeless search buying different bags from Amazon using them for a few days and being disappointed with them. I watched this go on for several weeks when I decided to intervene and I went to Rustico and purchased this bag, knowing it was exactly what she would want. Of course the price will scare most people away, but I believe quality and price go together. I knew if I spent the money on this bag it would be the last bag she would buy for a long time. After we got it she was extremely surprised! She was worried she wouldn’t be able to fit all of her stuff in it. After using it for a week she is absolutely in love with it and is now the envy of several other teachers that she works with. I couldn’t be more happy with the results from it. The bag is very well built and the type of material that as it wears, it gets better looking. It did have a strange blemish on the leather shoulder strap, which was disappointing, but it wasn’t enough to return it for a different one. My wife loves this bag and I’m sure she will use it for many years now! Thank you for this quality product!
Love this durable tote! Has many pockets to help keep me organized and the color is amazing!
The bag has lots of storage pockets and the leather strap is beautiful. The actual tote which is cloth material seems to attract and show dust.
