Leather is a beautiful natural material that is known for its strong, durable characteristic. If you treat your leather bows with appropriate care they will last for years to come. When bows are not in use, please store them flat on the card they came on. To clean your bows: use a very damp rag to pat away dirt, then let air dry. If your bows have folding at the edges, use either an iron or hair straightener on the lowest setting to straighten the folding. I typically use my hair straightener and lightly tap the edges of the bent leather straight. Please be sure NOT to leave the iron on the leather for too long.
