NALAH GENUINE LEATHER HANDBAG INFO AND WARRANTY ON YOUR LEATHER:

Genuine South african Leather 

 Diesel Leather is an aniline effect leather. Buffed and then coated in oil – then burned through an ironing press to achieve the effect. Once in use, the oil disperses into the hide, softening the leather from the inside out. This creates a 2 tone colour distress appearance with a soft velvet touch.

Genuine Leather is of the highest quality Diesel Leather- The leather will not peal on the Diesel leather. Ensure leather proper leather care on your Nalah Leather frame and Handles.

Diesel leather (Toffee/ Chocolate / Black ) does have some shine, when used the bag might tend to look matt – always ensure that leather wax care or leather conditioners are used as stipulated below.

 

Piccadilly Leather (Brandy / Hazelnut )

Piccadilly is a pure aniline leather finished with a blend of oils to achieve a pull-up effect and a glossy finish. Healed scars, scratches and neck wrinkles enhance this leathers character.

Piccadilly has a morw textured look than Diesel leather and not as shiny.

INSERT INFORMATION – VERY IMPORTANT

INSERT SIZING AGAINST FRAMES (LEATHER AND VINYL):

Inserts are all made to fit into our bags only.

Inserts are made smaller than all frames (Leather Bags and Vinyl bags) due to fabric thickness that may differ. We use various fabrics from thick upholstery Velvets to Cotton Canvas fabrics and all our inserts are lined with a stiffner.

Remember that inserts are not sewn into your bag similar to a lining and a separate item that may be removed.

You may see on your Leather Frames a 1cm difference on each side.

This is to ensure that when thick fabrics are used that they still fit onto the Frame.

Also once items are placed into your bag the sizing will also fill out and will fit into your bag.

This is also done as some of the leathers differ in thickness and our openings allow extra space if a thicker leather is used. Also the frame is lined and if the insert fits to tightly into the bag it pulls the insert and makes bubbles and folds inside the inner.

Once items are placed inside the insert/bag your bag shape will alter and the insert will fill out a bit.

TAKING CARE OF YOUR INSERT AND INFORMATION:

  • Inserts are all made locally in South Africa.
  • Textiles: Cotton Canvas / Canvas / 100% Cotton / Poly Cotton / Printed Velvets.
  • All our inserts have 2 inside pockets.

Nalah bags are a fashion accessory designed to carry small lightweight items. The maximum recommended load of the bag is 2kg. Do not overload your bag with heavy objects. This will cause damage to your Frame / Insert and also your handcrafted leather handles.
