LOVE + CARE

To help you along, please see our top tips:

LEATHER

First things first!  Your 2NDSKIN luxe leather apparel piece has been individually created & ethically produced.  Slow fashion attire to be worn & loved for years to come. Treasure & wear often. Treat with care and the potential to last a lifetime is there.

  • We suggest to apply a leather stain protector first up, & every 6 - 12 months thereafter to maintain the longevity
  • Unfortunately accidents can happen & stains may occur!
  • Treat the effected area(s) as soon as possible.  Blot & spot clean with a soft damp cloth
  • ANILINE LEATHER: Stain residue may remain on lighter colours
  • Suggestion - Apply a small amount of talcum powder when the affected area is dry in an effort to draw out the liquid. This may help with reducing the stain
  • Try not to get wet!  If this happens allow your piece to simply air dry
  • Do not dry clean - We are not lovers!
  • Hang item(s) on a well-shaped hanger out of direct sunlight
  • Never store in plastic - leather can’t breathe!
  • Avoid direct contact with hairspray, perfume & make-up!
  • Store you luxe leather piece in a temperate environment
  • Travelling - simply fold your leather apparel piece & place in your 2NDSKIN muslin dust bag whereby it can breathe & be protected at the same time

DENIM

Wear often, wash less & keep it cool! Your 2NDSKIN hand-made slow fashion denim item has been pre-washed and pre-shrunk. Stretch has been added to allow for individual shapes. After washing, item will return to the original form. Designed to age & fade gradually for that lived in look. That’s a great start.

  • First wear- there may be excess colour residue remaining, so please avoid contact with light coloured items
  • Try not to wash so much - indigos dyes will release more with every wash
  • Machine wash cold
  • Gentle cycle inside out
  • Wash darks separately
  • Try to avoid tumble dryers, or dry on a low cycle if needed!
  • Warm iron if required
  • Don’t dry clean - damage may occur to the dye lot & elastane
  • Refer to care label on garment
