We have chosen leather as the main material for PIHKA products, because it is a versatile, durable and timeless material. Leather is a by-product of cattle farming and all the leather we use is high-quality European leather. The leather used in PIHKA bags is 1.4-1.8 mm thick and feels quite soft. The sizes of the pieces vary, but they are usually about 10 x 10 cm to 30 x 30 cm in size.
Leather is a versatile material for various small and large crafts and handicrafts. In addition to bags, there are unlimited different uses for leather, for example in interior design for kitchen door handles or DIY jewelry.
Each piece bag is unique, as it is assembled from leftover pieces created during the production of PIHKA bags. Most of the leather in the bags is brown and black, but there are also pieces of leather in other colors. Various surface patterns and marks, such as scars, are characteristic of leather and belong to the nature of the material.
When well cared for, leather is an almost eternal material!

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.
