Caring for your Products

Here at Anya Hindmarch we use the best quality materials we can find for all of our products and are passionate about showcasing the natural beauty of leather and exotic skins. We see any weathering as part of the charm and story rather than damage and think that a few marks here and there make our products look loved. However, if you want to keep your purchase looking its best, we do have a few tips.

Leather

Our leather skins have been tanned specifically for your product and all have different characteristics. Over time you may see creasing or colour changes, all of which are natural features of leather. If leather is consistently exposed to harsh light, the product may experience some fading so we recommend that you store your product in its box or protective dust bag.

Suede

Suede is a unique, natural material. Avoid contact with light coloured fabrics or upholstery as the colour may transfer. We recommend avoiding extreme heat and direct sunlight and protecting your bag from rain. Should your bag come into contact with water, allow to dry naturally away from direct heat.

Exotic Skins

Over time some exotic skins may crease or the scales may lift slightly. These are all natural features of these luxurious skins. Colour irregularities are unique to every product but colour may transfer onto upholstery or clothing.

Metallic Finishes

Metallic finishes are delicate and may wear a little when worn with dark fabrics or in wet conditions.

Canvas

Our canvas is the most durable that we can find, but it’s still a good idea to keep it away from heat and damp. Some colour transfer may also occur if rubbed continuously.

Wool

Slight imperfections are part of the material’s charm. To keep your product looking its best, handle with care and avoid pulling, snagging or surface abrasion. Always store your bag in a box or dust bag and protect from rain. Should your product get wet, allow to dry naturally at room temperature. Please note that some pilling and fraying may occur with wear and is a natural characteristic of this material.

Fur

As with all fur products, avoid contact with light-coloured fabrics or upholstery as the colour may transfer. To keep your product looking its best, please handle with care and always store in a box or dust bag. Should your product get wet, allow to dry naturally at room temperature. Please note that some shedding may occur with wear and is a natural characteristic of this material.

Satin

Our luxurious satin is made using tightly woven threads to create a glossy finish and any embroidery will be very delicate. When you’re not using your bag please store in the protective dust bag and avoid heat and damp.

Nylon

Our nylon is the strongest we could find and will be showerproof. However, we recommend keeping nylon products away from excessive heat and water. Over time, creases may appear, which is a natural characteristic of the fabric.

Patent Leather

Over time you might notice natural colour changes or creases in patent leather. Try to avoid too much contact with other patent materials or light coloured clothing or upholstery, as some colour transfer may occur. Please do not store patent leather in plastic.

Glitter Finishes

Our glitter fabric is man-made and the glitter may shed a little with wear. Please be aware that the glitter can be sharp and so be careful when wearing your bag with delicate fabrics.

LED Lights

We hope that the lights in your Tiny Tim, Marano Dancer or Cherubim will entertain you for a long time. However, once they’re exhausted they can’t be replaced so make sure you turn them off when you don’t need them.
