Karmine Leather

FAQ

Where are my products made?

All of our products are all artfully handcrafted in our workshop located in South Australia.

Kangaroo leather is uniquely Australian and we want to maintain that throughout manufacturing. We are proud to be able to work with so many local suppliers to source materials to be created into our leather products. Controlling the entire supply chain, we ensure that from paddock to product our products remain close to nature and ensuring our leather goods are environmentally sustainable.

You can read more about our story in the ‘About Us’ page.


How do I care for my leather good?

All our products are designed to showcase the superior properties of kangaroo leather being lightweight, strong and resistant to stains. Each piece has its own markings representing the life of a wild animal and these naturally occurring imperfections create a unique and authentic product.

Given Kangaroos are wild, the life of the animal is found in the hide through marks and scarring from insect bites, thorns, fences, fights with other animals, as well as wrinkles, pores and pigments. However, we advise that care be taken to protect leather from sharp objects or abrasive surfaces that may leave an unnatural mark on your product.

To clean, just wipe with a soft damp cloth which will erase most marks. Heavy pooled oil or ink will penetrate through the leather leaving a stain. Please note that leather cannot be machine washed or dried as damage will result.  If the suede side of the hide is displayed on your product, avoid products that can cause stains as the suede side is not resistant unlike the leather side. A soft bristle brush can be used on the suede side only to wipe away dried grime. All products are treated with an upholstery protector but may require additional applications as repellency varies with wear.

Creases may appear on your product which will fall out once worn. If creases remain, gently iron on a low setting using your Karmine Leather dust bag provided or cotton pillowcase. Never use an iron directly on the leather or leave the iron on one spot for long periods as damage may result. Never use steam when ironing leather items.

Over time, your Karmine Leather product will gain the character of its owner and as such, should be handled with care.
