Our materials are essential to our craft. As a responsible business, we take care to choose not just the finest but also the most suitable and sustainable materials.
Bynd Artisan uses cowhide leather that are sourced from Europe. In addition to making sure that they are of the finest quality, our products are processed in a quality-certified tannery using state-of-the-art technology. This includes employing process-controlled machines and practising eco-friendly methods such as using EU- and US-regulated chemicals that do not pollute the water. This results in the preservation of the leather’s natural lustre and suppleness, making our products a delightful tactile experience as well.
Bynd Artisan only uses Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper coming from forests that are carefully managed to be environmentally harmonious, socially beneficial and economically viable.
As leather is a natural material, the appearance of your Bynd Artisan item will change with the environment as it grows with you. For the leather to remain soft and supple, it will require your close care and attention for it to last a lifetime.
Essential Everyday Care
The most basic care of all starts with brushing off any dirt or dust which will accumulate overtime. Simply wipe your item with a soft, clean cloth or a brush with soft bristles every other day, or whenever possible.
Moisture and Conditioning
Just like our human skin, the natural construct of leather will dry out and crack if not cared for. With a soft, clean cloth or soft sponge, dap on readily available leather lotion and conditioners in the market and apply a thin layer onto the leather whilst going in a circular motion. But do ensure that you clean off any excess dirt or dust at the very beginning.
Storage and Safekeep
To prevent leather from further drying out, it is always recommended to store it away from direct sunlight. If possible, store your Bynd Artisan item in a breathable bag e.g. non-woven material and avoid storage in plastic bags which do not offer a well-ventilated environment.
