Condition every 8-12 weeks. Think of conditioning as a moisturizer for your leather. Leather will dry out over time, and conditioner will maintain the moisture. To soften the scratches and small marks of everyday life, we recommend that you moisturize it with a special nourishing cream leather that you can easily find in a shoemaker. We also we recommend to treat your Ella bag with weatherproofing spray every 2-4 weeks and to avoid rainy weather – she is not waterproof.
