In Hong Kong, one of the problems that we all face with leather items is our fight against humidity. As we race through the early part of the year (this year has sped by so fast has it not?), we are getting into the humid and sorry to remind you, wet months. How many times have you picked up a pair of shoes, a hand bag, a leather jacket, leather trousers, dress or skirt and found that nasty green mould on it. The smell too!. You think a good wipe with a damp cloth to clean away the green stuff and then pat dry will get rid of the problem but unfortunately, mould is stubborn and comes back.
The sun is starting to come out and we look towards packing up our winter wardrobe and getting some much needed space back into our lives... One of the quintessentially classic items of winter wear is fur that exudes elegance, luxury and wealth. Let’s be honest, a fur also does come with a hefty price tag and is definitely an investment.
