How to care for…

Alpina Calf

Alpina Calf is a textured leather with a soft hand feel that retains an undeniably chic appeal while remaining suitable for everyday use. This exceptional material has been expertly treated to offer an additional level of brilliance, allowing the leather to more effectively capture the light and enhance the silhouettes to which it is applied.

Alpina Calf

Your Delvaux is made from the highest quality Alpina Calf leather sourced from Europe. It has been selected and crafted with the greatest care by our master craftsmen in our workshops in Belgium and France.

To preserve the timeless beauty of your leather, we recommend that you take the following precautions:

  • First, if your Delvaux is damaged in any way, take it to one of our boutiques or contact our Customer Support.

  • Store your Delvaux in its original dust bag and fill it with tissue paper to preserve its shape.

  • Be careful not to overfill your Delvaux, this could permanently damage or alter its shape.

  • Avoid contact with oils, greases, perfumes, and cosmetics.

  • If the leather gets wet, dry it gently by dabbing it with a soft, clean cloth to prevent staining.

  • Avoid direct and prolonged exposure to sunlight and heat to prevent discoloration.

  • For light leathers, avoid contact with dark-colored garments and vice versa, as dye transfer may occur.

  • Metal parts acquire a patina over time. All metal parts may be gently cleaned with a soft, dry, non-abrasive cloth.

  • To ensure your leather remains nourished and protected, we recommend using Delvaux’s ‘First Care’ range. Do not use the 'First Care' range on embroideries.

How to use Delvaux’s ‘First Care’ range:

Please follow the instructions and video below carefully:

1. Begin by spreading a small amount of cleaning lotion on the cloth provided and rub it into the bottom of your bag.

2. Leave the lotion for ten minutes, then wipe clean with a cloth.

3. Continue rubbing the lotion over the rest of the leather, making sure to avoid the bag’s interior. Use sweeping, circular movements to ensure the lotion is evenly distributed across the bag’s exterior.

4. Leave for ten minutes, then again, wipe with a clean cloth. Go over any areas where the lotion has not been fully absorbed.

5. Restore shine by buffing the leather with the glove provided, or using a very soft cloth. Leave to dry for 30-60 minutes.

6. To finish, use the cloth dedicated to the accessory. Shake it before use to remove any dust and then gently rub your accessory with the clean cloth.
