Teespoon Handbags and Leather Care

To preserve the beauty of your one-of-a-kind handbag be careful not to scratch or rub your product against abrasive surfaces, especially the leather trim. Protect your product from humidity and keep it away from direct sources of heat, such as radiators and the inside of cars in summer. Avoid contact with liquid, hand cream, hand sanitizer, make-up and perfume.

Clean leather with a dry soft cloth. Do not store in high temperatures, high humidity or unventilated areas. 

Disclaimer: At Teespoon Boutique we use natural materials sourced throughout Africa. We believe in using materials that naturally show signs of life.  All of our products are handmade and constructed and each has the perfect imperfections of a handmade masterpiece. Slight variations may be visible from one product to another.

Teespoon Jewelry Care

To preserve the finish on your sterling silver jewelry, always remove your jewelry before swimming, showering or bathing or cleaning with household chemicals, especially ones containing bleach or ammonia. Be sure to apply hairspray, creams, makeup and fragrance prior to putting on your jewelry.

Clean sterling silver items with a silver polishing cloth for the best shine, or use a soft, pure-cotton cloth. To minimize oxidation avoid exposure to the most common tarnish-causing elements: humidity, salt, wool, rubber bands, oils on your hands and sulfur in the air (often found in urban pollution). 

Sterling silver items worn continually will develop a patina—a warm glow with darker areas—as a result of contact with the air and oils in the skin. If you prefer a bright and shiny finish, use polish to restore the original shine.
