This design is made of black Italian soft nappa leather. If you happen to accidentally scratch the surface of the leather, delicately moisten the scrape and rub, this will smooth it away. Once in a while, you can apply an avocado or bee wax-based leather care detergent. If the leather does get wet, wipe it quickly using a dry cloth. Do not use a hair dryer or heater. Do not allow contact with perfume, chemicals, etc. Do not expose the bag to excessive sunlight as this may lead to permanent discoloration.
