To ensure the leather print on your product is as durable as possible, we’ve worked hard refining our printing process and craftsmanship. As leather is a natural material you may notice small differences in surface and texture, as well as wrinkles, which is common to products made from natural leather. All leathers age naturally according to usage, and this can cause the print to wrinkle or fade slightly over time. It is possible the base color may show through the leather as it ages with wear. When not in use we recommend storing your product in a protective dust bag or box to keep your product looking its best. Avoid prolonged exposure to extreme heat, sunlight, water, and chemical cleaners to maintain a bright and long-lasting print. Avoid contact with light colored fabrics or upholstery as the color may transfer. While a light rain shower is unlikely to harm, we recommend protecting from rain. Should your product get wet, allow to dry naturally away from direct heat. To clean, surface wipe only with a damp lint free cotton cloth.
About the Materials
We make your personalized leather backpack from the following materials: Nappa leather, faux suede, webbing, and mesh. Most of your Colville backpack will be made from bubble textured Nappa, including the front, sides, base, and outside of the straps. Other bits will be accented with smooth Nappa, which will be the zip pulls and decorative tabs, handle, and strap attachments. The handle and adjustable part of the straps will be made from webbing material, while the inside of the straps and back of the bag will be an aerated mesh. This mesh is breathable on your back and provides cushion from anything inside. Our faux suede material will line the inside of your custom leather backpack. Aside from your photo on the front, all of the materials will be black.
