Some helpful hints for keeping your Jane Shilton handbags and shoes in good condition.
- Do not use polish or cleaning spray on any leather products. All of our leather products have been given a protective finish.
- To remove surface dirt, occasionally wipe gently with a soft duster. Stains can sometimes be removed using a mild soapy solution, not a detergent.
- Suede which has been rain-marked should be allowed to dry naturally and then brushed up with a suede brush.
- When not in use, store leather goods out of direct sunlight and do not place light colours next to dark colours as this can cause colour migration
which is irreversible.
- Try not to overfill your handbag . overfilled handbags tend to lose their shape. This can loosen the dye and can cause colour bleeding.
Shoe care - Uppers
- Leather is not waterproof, we therefore advise you to avoid wearing your shoes in the rain. Use protector, especially on suede and nubuck.
- Unless specifically recommended, do not use any polish or spray on any metallic or pearlised leather.
- Leather is a natural product, so some gradual creasing or cracking will occur during normal wear. This is not considered to be a fault.
Patent leather has a surface film which can be prone to cracking.
- Try to avoid storing your shoes in extremely cold temperatures.
- To maintain the shape of your shoes, rest them between wears with shoe trees or tissue.
Shoe care - Soles
- Leather soles are considered a luxury and should be treated as such. They are not waterproof. If soles become wet, dry your shoes
naturally at the first opportunity. Never dry near heat.
- We do not recommend the use of stick-on soles or top lifts which alter the balance of the shoes.
