LEATHER CARE & INFORMATION
— How can I maintain my Beara Beara bag? We protect the leather to make it weather and wear resistant, however over time if you pick up scratches we recommend that you use leather dubbin or wax. Take an old cloth and work the dubbin into the leather in a gentle circular movement and this will both get rid of any small scratches and bring a nice shine back to the leather. — Does Beara Beara have maintenance service? If you would like your bag rejuvenated you are most welcome to visit one of our stores where we will happily revamp your bag. We are happy to re-stain, trim treads, put a new wax on the leather service and generally bring the bag back to its original self. We are happy to do this while you wait however we would appreciate your patience on busy days. — Are the products sold in the Shanghai store the same products as from the UK? All Beara Beara products are manufactured in our factory in Bolivia and are exactly the same. All products sold on our Chinese website and in our Shanghai store come directly from London and are identical to the products sold in the UK. — Do we use natural leather? Yes we only use natural leather. We source robust unprocessed skins that include natural imperfections and grains which are a unique feature of our bags. — Will the leather frame soften? We use robust leather for the frame to make the bag fit for carrying large loads. After several weeks use the frame will begin to soften and add to the ease of use. Although made to last for a long time we do recommend not overloading with excessively heavy items. — Is the leather waterproof? As we use natural leather it is not waterproof. However, the bag can be protected using waterproofing spray. The more spray you use the more waterproof it will become, however, please be aware that spray may change the finish of the leather. — Will the bag get damaged if it gets wet? As explained the leather will soak up some water but this will not damage the bag. If this is merely a rain shower then there is no danger to the contents. If the bag does get wet simply hang it up as you would clothes and it will most likely be dry by the morning. — Will there be a colour transfer from the leather? We use naturally tanned premium leather, therefore it is normal that you may experience a small amount of colour transfer initially. The leather stain has been sealed, however we would recommend avoiding the use of light coloured clothing for the first few uses until the colour has settled. This bag is made to last for a long time and once the stain has settled then you are then free to use it however and wherever you wish for many years. — Will the colour of the suede run? The colour has been fixed however this is never 100%. If the bag becomes saturated then there can be a very minimal transfer of colour between dark suede and light cotton material however this is a rare occurrence especially if it is protected with spray. — Are the materials organic? We strongly favour working with suppliers that use locally sourced materials. The natural wool and leather that is used to make our bags are by-products of the meat industry, the majority of which comes from the central lowlands of Bolivia near Santa Cruz and therefore minimizing the transport involved. — Is Beara Beara a fair-trade business? Since our launch in 2012, it has been our mission to work closely with small local businesses and families, to develop long lasting and successful working relationships. We have chosen not to apply for Fair Trade registration simply for the fact that we are perfectly comfortable with our business practices and don’t feel we need the stamp of approval of an outside organisation. As the retail side of the business grows we subsequently provide more people with a regular income and continue to improve the lives of many who were once struggling.
