Please handle all products with gentle care.  See information on Product Info.

Leather Care

  • Do not machine wash or tumble dry.  Do not iron.
  • Spot Clean only - if necessary. Wipe over area with a soft, clean, damp cloth.
  • Leather is a natural product and softens and stretches with heat/warmth. Sometimes even light rubbing over a marked area with clean fingertips, is enough to remove a slight mark.
  • Leather can be treated with leather care product for protection.  Alternatively dry clean.
  • Whilst it is durable, leather is also delicate, please avoid contact with rough surfaces or textures near your leather piece.
  • These products are made from natural fibres and as a result will age gradually.  ‘Wear and tear’ is to be expected and adds to the character of the product.

Leather is a natural substance, it does occasionally contain blemishes.  Different parts of the hide used can appear slightly different between any 2 products produced.  While we do our best to quality control leather pieces used and items produced this is not always avoidable.

Blooming Leopard Products

Blooming Leopard is a bespoke online boutique.  We are committed to providing excellent customer service to lovers of our products. We would like to highlight that all our pieces are designed by us.  Each individual piece is produced by hand by our dedicated team.  No piece is exactly the same.  Any slight imperfections in a product are simply part of its individual charm and we take pride in producing items that are unique and creative. In particular, with the leather products they will soften and and wear with time. As leather is a natural product it will soften with use and heat and build with character after each use.

The search for Blooming Leopard inspiration using eclectic fabrics and leathers has taken us on adventures abroad and hopefully many more to come.  We look forward to welcoming you into our world and sharing our beautiful pieces.
