Care of Items

Kempton & Co. laptop handbags are made of highest quality leather and materials. Grain and slight differences of color are characteristics of the leather. The leather is a natural product and, inherent in the material, are scars and irregularities, which can spot, lose color, or darken. We believe this adds to the character and aesthetic of our products. Water stains should be left alone, as they will ultimately blend into the darker leather with time and wear. The leather may stain if exposed to oils, dyes, or dark denim, and may be difficult to remove. When the bag is not in use, it is recommended to keep it in a soft dust bag to protect the hardware from scratching. 

With normal use, your bag may darken or become more slouchy and soft. We recommend keeping your bag away from direct sunlight, heat, humidity, and water. Exposure to makeup, oil, dyes, and dark denim can unfortunately stain the leather and can be hard to remove. In the case that your bag is stained, we strongly suggest bringing it to a leather care professional who can assist you with the best restoration options.

It is recommended not to wear light-colored clothing with any dark suede items as a natural crocking of color can occur, especially in wet or damp weather. To limit this possibility, we recommend using a Scotch Guard protective spray. We also recommend using a Scotch Guard to protect any light-colored textile bags. We recommend that you do not attempt to clean or repair your bag yourself but rather use our recommended go-to bag spa !
