Our leather coats, bags and accessories are handmade in our Montreal workshops.
The Cokluch designers give a particular attention to each article details, concentrating on the colors, textures and the leather resistance. It allows Cokluch to guarantee its leather goods quality.
The leather is a natural product that can have some imperfections (vein marks, scars, tint shades). These are the natural characteristics that distinguish leather from imitations.
Cokluch uses different leather types depending on the product category we are making (bags, coats and accessories). To help you preserve your leather goods, you will find in the list below the leather types used at Cokluch as well as tips to care for each one.
Generally, the rain doesn’t harm this leather type but if your product is extremely wet, lay it flat to dry away from heat. Wipe with a damp cloth to remove stains. To maintain the leather clean and supple aspect, polish the surface with a soft leather conditioner or mink oil.
Suede is a porous material that needs to be protected from the rain. Apply a waterproofing product every 2 to 3 months. If it is extremely wet, lay it flat to dry away from heat. If it is stained, clean it with products made to clean suede; vinegar and soft soap could be used too (try the product in a discreet zone first). If the products don’t work, take it to a dry cleaning specialist.
The nubuck is a special treatment on sanded and not done skins. This treatment is used to strengthen the leather and it gives it a matte, rough aspect. Apply a waterproofing product every 2 to 3 months. You clean the nubuck the same way as suede. If some grease stains persist, try to apply baby powder, gently rub with your finger, let sink in a couple hours (all night for example) and delicately rub or brush to remove the powder.
