How will my product wear over time?

Minor History products are made from the finest leather and will soften and drape beautifully with wear.

The color of our natural vegetable tanned leather will deepen over time as it is exposed to sunlight and the oils in your skin. View an image of this change here


My bag looks different than I expected.

Subtle markings and texture variation are not considered imperfections, but inherent characteristics of the natural hides. Regardless, if you would like to arrange an exchange please email


Is color transfer an issue?

Care should be taken when coming in contact with lighter color fabrics as color transfer may occur. Reversely if you’ve selected a lighter color Minor History bag you should be aware of contact with dark fabrics such as denim.


How should I clean my bag?

To clean, gently wipe with damp cloth and let air dry.

We recommend Leather Lover from Murchison-Hume for light at home care.  

Professional cleaning is recommended for stains.
