Our Materials

When you have purchased a natural full-grain leather product from dbramante1928, we want you to be as pleased with it in ten years as you are today. Leather is a natural fibre in that it is not human-made. As it is an organic material, it needs occasional care and conditioning to keep it looking its best throughout the years.

As time passes, full-grain leather will develop a natural patina, whereas lower grades will not. This is not something that can, or should, be avoided, and instead is part of the natural ageing process, making the bag even more beautiful.
Caring for a leather bag is similar to caring for your own skin as both benefit greatly from a good moisturiser, especially as we age.

As a general rule, when caring for your new product; reapply a quality leather cream or oil every few months, or as required. Even if you care for your leather regularly, this doesn't prevent it from encountering everyday issues such as scratches, water damage or stains. There are, however, some preventative measures that you can take, above and beyond regular cleaning and weatherproofing to reduce their impact on your cherished product.

Our commitment to quality

All leathers used in our cases are 100% real cow or buffalo hides and have been hand selected by skilled craftsmen to ensure the consistency of our leather quality in every product.

Only approved factories are allowed to produce dbramante1928.

The production starts with sourcing the best materials and then the tanning of the raw hides. This is followed by preparing the leather to our look and feel, and implementing the design, stitching and the quality controls.

Throughout the production process, which can take as many as 28 different steps, checks are made for approving the quality of our leathers to ensure the solution we provide meets our high standards of hand-tooled luxury leather case solutions.
dbramante1928 products have been manufactured from full-grain quality leather. There may be some characteristic signs such as wrinkles, scars and marks. Those do not effect the durability of the product, in fact these arise from the natural beauty of the full-grain leather.

Care for your dbramante1928 leather product

For general cleaning on the leather parts of your dbramante1928 product, please use a soft cloth and a leather cleaner and/or conditioning cream and follow instructions.

This should be done three or four times a year, and this facilitates the durability, shine, and increases the beauty of your dbramante1928 product overall.

Please remember that natural leather products are not weatherproof. Stains and permeation may occur if water is applied.
