leather and handbag care
The utmost attention and care has gone into hand selecting the skins for each Zahava NYC bag. Please note that any unique marks, tonal or grain variations are characteristics of natural leather and not imperfections.
PLEASE FOLLOW THE CARE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW TO MAINTAIN THE BEAUTY AND NEWNESS OF YOUR ZAHAVA NYC HANDBAG:
Be careful when adding heavy items or overstuffing the bag, as doing so may damage or deform its shape.
Avoid contact with water, grease, lotions, perfumes and other cosmetics. If the bag gets wet or soiled, dab it with a soft neutral cloth.
Avoid overexposure to heat, humidity, moisture and direct sunlight, as it may discolor and slightly distort the shape of the product.
Be careful not to rub your bag against abrasive materials/surfaces. Any minor scratches may be treated by delicately rubbing the leather with a very clean finger.
To clean your bag of dirt from daily use, wipe it gently with a clean soft cloth. You can also apply a leather cleaner/conditioner, but make sure to test an inconspicuous area first. For more intensive cleaning, we recommend taking your bag to a shoe repair shop that specializes in leather handbag treatment.
When the bag is not in use, be certain to store it in the dust bag provided in a cool, dry place. Stuffing the bag with tissue paper and tucking all straps inside the bag will help to maintain its shape and prevent exterior scratching and crocking.

We stand by the quality and craftsmanship of our products and are offering a one-year warranty policy for all leather handbags! Products that are within the one-year warranty period are eligible for repairs free of charge. Proof of purchase from Zahava LLC will be required for any repair services.
Email us at email@example.com with a brief description of the issue, along with a photo of the damaged item, as this enables us to provide the best service to you. We will be more than happy to fix the product and ship it back to you free of charge! The customer must pay for the shipping charges to get the bag to us, but that's it. If there is an issue that we are unable to fix, we will let you know and do our very best to make it up to you. Each case will be dealt with on an individual basis and repairs may take up to 3 to 4 weeks, excluding shipping time. We will communicate all of this information once we're able to assess the damage with our manufacturer.
For products that are outside of the warranty period, you can still contact us via the instructions cited above. We will be more than happy to offer our repair services to you but at a cost. Customers will be responsible for a service fee for the repair, as well as the shipping charges in both directions. The repair costs are decided on a case-by-case basis, as it varies depending on the service needed.
Please note, this warranty applies to materials and workmanship under responsible use only. This warranty does not cover damage caused by accident, rough handling, irresponsible use, or neglect. Additionally, we would like to add that all leather evolves over time, which is part of its beauty. Therefore, this warranty does not cover the natural aging of materials or wear and tear. If general wear and tear has affected the products’ appearance, we suggest visiting a leather care professional for refurbishment.
