CARE OF THE PRODUCT ARE YOUR PRODUCTS ALL ARTISAN PRODUCTS MADE IN ITALY?
Of course, Laboratorio Mariucci products are all made in Italy with exclusively natural leathers (leather or full-grain calfskin), tanned, dyed and worked according to ancient artisanal methods, modeled using the most sophisticated technologies and scrupulously finished by hand. For this reason, every small imperfection, sign or micro defect of the skin is to be considered a valuable element that certifies its originality and enhances and strengthens its uniqueness.

WHAT CERTIFIES THAT ITEMS ARE MADE IN ITALY?
The Made in Italy certification is indicated internally with the words “Genuine Leather Made in Italy”, in some cases it is accompanied by a tricolor flag in fabric and is further shown on the tag accompanying the product.

WHAT DOES VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER MEAN?
Vegetable tanned leather undergoes a very slow manufacturing process based on tannins extracted from tree bark. It is a very ancient, ecological and extremely valuable traditional Tuscan procedure, able to make the leathers soft, light, soft to the touch and with aesthetic characteristics of great naturalness. The leather that undergoes this type of processing, being very delicate, requires special care and particular respect for use.

HOW DO I BE SURE IT IS TRULY VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER?
The use of this tanning method is certified by a specific additional tag bearing the trademark of the Consortium Genuine Italian Vegetable Tanned Leather, it is accompanied by anti-counterfeiting methods and by progressive and registered numbering.

HOW CAN I TAKE CARE OF MY LEATHER BAG?
All natural leathers require specific precautions in use and maintenance to guarantee long-lasting shine, integrity and elastic softness. The first rule is not to overload the bag, periodically moisturize it using a neutral wax. Never rub hard or use hard bristle brushes. It is also essential to keep it away from humidity and direct heat sources, perfumes, solvents and oily substances (make-up).

MY BAG GETS WET WHAT CAN I DO?
To avoid indelible halos or the formation of pangs and cracks, never expose the skin directly to the hot air of the hairdryer and do not place the bag on heaters to speed up drying. Instead, blot the wet area with a dry cloth and let it air dry naturally for as long as necessary.

HOW TO STORE A BAG THAT I NO LONGER USE?
After use, bags, bags, suitcases and accessories must be completely emptied of their contents, ventilated and dusted gently using a soft cloth. It is advisable to fill the bags with tissue paper or raw paper (without inks that could stain both the lining and the leather over time) and place them in the closet in their original felt bag, away from metal elements.

HOW TO CLEAN MY LEATHER BAG?
To preserve beauty and resistance, leather items must be treated with neutral cream after use, brushed gently to avoid scratches, and never be exposed to water or direct heat. When not in use, they must be periodically ventilated to avoid the formation of mold. Any nuances, streaks or halos due to use are valuable characteristics that enhance the preciousness of the product.

HOW TO KEEP THE BEAUTY OF MY LEATHER BAG INTACT?
As durable as leather is, it is very sensitive to sunlight: parts exposed to direct light tend to remain lighter. The water leaves you with dark stains that are often indelible, or even cracks when it dries too quickly. Bumps and scratches remain engraved as hallmarks and also as travel mementos. On the other hand, its extraordinary charm lies not only in the unmistakable perfume, but above all in its unique ability to absorb and tell the story of those who use it.

I NEED TO REPAIR MY BAG CAN YOU HELP ME?
Of course, send an e-mail requesting assistance to Laboratorio Mariucci eboutique@laboratoriomariucci.com accompanied by one or two photos with an enlarged detail of the damage to be repaired. We will contact you as soon as possible to show you how to proceed and / or give you a quote if the damage is not covered by the warranty. In any case, Laboratorio Mariucci reserves the right to evaluate case by case the opportunity to remedy the damage or propose compensation.
