What is the break-in period?

Just like a pair of good boots, most, if not all, full-grain leather items also have a break-in period.

 

Wallets:

You’ll notice that your new Vel. wallet will be a bit stiff and you may struggle to remove and store your cards. This is perfectly normal, and it will get better and better the more you use it. With emphasis on the word USE! It won’t get softer or more supple if you don’t use it! Give it a month or two and you’ll be the owner of a very user-friendly and premium wallet!

If patience isn’t your strong point you can try applying some of our leather conditioner to soften it. However, be cautious not to overuse it as too much of a good thing can be bad too! Don’t apply more than once a month!

 

Bags:

Most Vel. bags should already be quite user friendly when you receive it but if you feel like it needs a bit of a kick start in becoming softer and more flexible you can try applying some of our leather conditioner to soften it. However, be cautious not to overuse it as too much of a good thing can be bad too! Don’t apply more than once a month!
