Before applying conditioners to your leather product, brush loose material from the surface with a soft brush or damp cloth and treat the surface with a leather cleaner. We recommend ecological FAMACO cleaning foam or Saphir leather cleaning emulsion for cleaning. The substance is spread evenly on the surface of the leather with a natural sponge or a soft cloth, the excess substance is removed and allowed to dry. The surface is finished with a leather brush or cloth.
After cleaning, protect the leather surface with FAMACO protective spray or FAMACO leather care agent. In both care products that provide moisture and protection, the substance is sprayed or spread evenly on the surface of the leather with the help of a soft cloth. Allow to dry carefully. After treatment, the surface is still polished with a leather brush or cloth.
We recently conducted a survey that received 984 responses. As many as 85% of the respondents recommend us. We think this is due to what everything in the PIHKA Collection comes together.
PIHKA is also durable in its design and aesthetics, and that is why you want to take care of it. The bag becomes a dear companion, and you don't want to abandon your life partner, but on the contrary to guard, protect and love.
Our leather comes from Europe, from operators recognized as progressive. We have also tried other materials, but leather has proven to be the most durable and maintainable.
PIHKA is made nearby in Finland - in small town Sastamala or in our own work premises in Helsinki. Our unique handprint comes from respecting traditions and combining new methods. Handmade beauty caresses the soul.
