Care and Cleaning

Care & Cleaning

Saffiano

The polyvinyl-coated leather is generally water repellent and should repel most soil. Should the surface become soiled, cleaning should be done with a soft cotton cloth or soft toothbrush slightly dampened with distilled water (sodium-free seltzer water may be substituted) and a mild bar soap, applied in a circular motion. Repeat with distilled water only to ensure no residual soap remains. The material should then be allowed to dry completely. No creams, polishes, cleansers, or leather conditioning agents should be applied to any portion of the leather. The 100% vachetta leather trim will characteristically darken over time with use and exposure to light.

Pebble Leather

This leather has been treated for water repellency. It can usually be cleaned with the use of a soft cotton cloth slightly dampened with distilled water (sodium-free seltzer water may be substituted) and a mild bar soap, applied in a circular motion. Repeat with distilled water only to ensure no residual soap remains. The leather should then be allowed to dry completely. This collection requires no creams, polishes, or leather conditioning products to maintain its beauty.

Florentine Leather

The Florentine leather has not been specifically treated for water repellency. Thus, the leather will temporarily darken when wet, and return to the original tone once completely dry. The waxed surface may assist in staving off some dirt. With continued use, a lovely shine or patina will develop, only enhancing the beauty of this leather. It is also characteristic for lighter colors to darken with use over time and exposure to light. Minor abrasions may be removed or lessened with the use of a very soft cloth and a gentle buffing action. This collection requires no creams, polishes, or leather conditioning products to maintain its beauty.

Claremont

The polyvinyl-coated leather is generally water repellent and should repel most soil. Should the surface become soiled, cleaning should be done with a soft cotton cloth or soft toothbrush slightly dampened with distilled water (sodium-free seltzer water may be substituted) and a mild bar soap, applied in a circular motion. Repeat with distilled water only to ensure no residual soap remains. The material should then be allowed to dry completely. No creams, polishes, cleansers, or leather conditioning agents should be applied to any portion of the leather. The 100% vachetta leather trim will characteristically darken over time with use and exposure to light.

Claremont Woven

The leather used in the Claremont Woven collection is both water repellent and generally scratch resistant. This leather can usually be cleaned with the use of a soft cotton cloth slightly dampened with distilled water (sodium-free seltzer water may be substituted) and a mild bar soap, applied in a circular motion. Repeat with distilled water only to ensure no residual soap remains. The leather should then be allowed to dry completely. This collection is very durable and should require no creams, polishes, cleansers, or conditioning products to maintain its beauty.

Patent Leather

Patent Leather is tanned in the traditional way. However, the final stages involve the addition of a varnish and a degree of buffing to create the polished high-shine finish. The bags/small leather goods should not come into contact with other bags, as the color can rub off slightly. This leather can usually be cleaned with the use of a soft cotton cloth slightly dampened with distilled water (sodium-free seltzer water may be substituted), applied in a circular motion. The leather should then be allowed to dry completely. This collection requires no creams, polishes, or leather conditioning products to maintain its beauty. Please note that it is a natural characteristic of vachetta leather to darken over time with use and exposure to light.

Suede

Dooney & Bourke's suede bags have been treated for general water repellency. However, when exposed to water for any sustained period of time, some absorption will occur. In this instance a dry cloth should be used to blot excess liquid, then the item should be allowed to finish drying naturally. Once dry, a suede brush should be used to gently lift the nap. Simple surface dirt may be removed from the suede bags with the use of a suede brush applied in short even strokes, alternating direction occasionally, with minimal pressure. Some grime that remains following the aforementioned treatment may be removed or lessened with the use of a soft white eraser used in a gentle circular motion, followed by the light stroke of a suede brush. No creams, polishes, or leather conditioning products should be used on the leather trim and handles. Please note that it is a natural characteristic of vachetta leather to darken over time with use and exposure to light. Please note: Some consideration should be given when using these handbags during inclement weather. In addition, care should also be taken as to where these particular handbags are stored when not in use. This consideration will keep the soil on the bottom to a minimum and maintain optimal beauty of the handbag.

Coated Cotton

The polyvinyl-coated cotton fabric is generally water repellent and should repel most soil. Should the fabric become soiled, cleaning should be done with a soft cotton cloth or soft toothbrush slightly dampened with distilled water (sodium-free seltzer water may be substituted) and a mild bar soap, applied in a circular motion. Repeat with distilled water only to ensure no residual soap remains. The material should then be allowed to dry completely. No creams, polishes, cleansers, or leather conditioning agents should be applied to any portion of the vachetta leather trim. The 100% vachetta leather trim will characteristically darken over time with use and exposure to light.

Sutton

The polyvinyl-coated cotton fabric is generally water repellent and should repel most soil. Should the fabric become soiled, cleaning should be done with a soft cotton cloth or soft toothbrush slightly dampened with distilled water (sodium-free seltzer water may be substituted) and a mild bar soap, applied in a circular motion. Repeat with distilled water only to ensure no residual soap remains. The material should then be allowed to dry completely. No creams, polishes, cleansers, or leather conditioning agents should be applied to any portion of the vachetta leather.

Nylon

The nylon fabric will initially repel water. However, if nylon is exposed to water for any length of time, it will darken momentarily due to some water absorption. Should this occur, blot with a dry white or light-colored cloth and allow it to dry completely. For simple spot cleaning, use a soft cotton cloth slightly dampened with distilled water (sodium-free seltzer water may be substituted) and a mild bar soap, applied in a circular motion. Repeat with distilled water only to ensure no residual soap remains. The fabric should then be allowed to dry completely. Oily spots should first be wiped free of excess liquid. Talcum powder is then sprinkled on the area and allowed to sit briefly. Using a dry toothbrush, gently brush the powder away to alleviate the soil. No creams, polishes, cleansers, or leather conditioning products should be used on the trim and handles.

A229396 - Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Medium Russel Bag 4.5 5 15 15
Great Bag! I just received this bag today in the tan after great anticipation from reviewing the video and the reviews. I was not disappointed! I wanted it for travel in order to store my purse and other many items needed these days when traveing. It absolutely fits the bill. This bag is perfect! I love the leather as it feels durable and is the type of leather that gets better with age. Love Love! 03-11-13
I Love My First Dooney!! I purchased this tote to use as an overnight/travel bag and am thrilled with it! There is no questioning the quality in all the details. I listened to the presentations about the Florentine leather, so I knew what to expect regarding the variations in the leather, which this bag does have. That's part of what I love about it, each one has its own fingerprint and yours will be unique to you. Would definitely encourage anyone who's considering this one to pick it up! Glad to finally own a Dooney & Bourke and plan to treat myself to another in the future. 01-29-13
Navy Great Colour! Great Tote! I really wanted the Navy, so I grabbed it up AS IS and there is a couple of big marks but when I put leather conditioner on and really helps to blend them. This is a great size Tote/ Bag if you like to throw a bunch of stuff in. I was looking for a gorgeous Tote that I could carry my regular purse items and then some and this is it Just what I wanted. Great outside zipper. I also had ordered the Plum in Small , while it is smaller, it cant really fit the extras, so if you r looking just for a purse it would be great!!! Either way both Small and Medium are a great style Bag!!! 01-28-13
Amazing I was not sure i would like this bag. I ordered it to use as a carry on for travel. It is STUNNING !!!!!! I have several other Dooney bags and a ton of coach bags but I love everything about this one order it you will not be disappointed . 01-19-13
Not worth the money I received this tote and it had several scratch marks on it, and after using it once it looked horrible due to more scratches. It is also too big to use as an every day tote, and too heavy. 01-16-13
Beautiful in Blue I wanted this in the black, but it was sold out. I took a chance on the blue and SO glad I did! It is absolutely gorgeous! Nice size too! 01-16-13
A Must Have Large Bag First I must say that I love the Florentine collection and this one did not disappoint. With my responsibility at work I needed a larger bag in black. I now own seven of the Florentine bags. This one is the simplest in design. I am not a fan of logo fabric items. This bag reminded me of the large Louis Vuitton tote bags that cost twice the money and are made of cotton. Thanks Dooney for creating this simple design. It is classy style. Love it. Love the Florentine line. 01-05-13
flex pay I luv it have one and want another; but I need flex pay ......when will this item be back on flex pay????/ 12-28-12
Fantastic....LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!! This bag is marvelous. The perfect bag...simplistic, yet classic. I love Florentine leather. Color ordered - black. Thank you Dooney!! 12-11-12
Refreshing! I am not one to write a review - partly because I believe one either likes a product or not, on their own (void of influence) - however, I am a Dooney & Bourke fan, again! The Florentine Collection has - genuinely - brought me running back! (In joy!!!) I left as a result of experiencing disappointment upon disappointment regarding the leather quality versus pricing. Yuk! Yuk! With that said, I am speechless regarding the Russel handbag! The quality of the leather is orthodox, the stitching is professional and the size - ok, I've got to pause - makes me wanna-shout-for-joy!! (Yes, I enjoy big bags...) My only regret: I failed to buy more than one during the Easy Pay period because I want each and every color. FYI: : To protect your new handbag when traveling (under the airplane seat or above in the overhead cabinet) prior to boarding - place your handbag in its sleeper bag. 12-06-12
nice purse but not for me The leather was very nice as all of the purses are. I was disappointed because I found it veryo heavyo oand quite large. I love large purses, but this one was called medium, and I did not want a large purse, and a heavy one. 12-04-12
Great large tote This is a beautiful tote! Navy leather is wonderful. However, it was slightly to large for a purse. Worked great for a work or school bag. It is going back and I'm getting the smaller version to use as a purse. 12-01-12
