:: MATERIAL AND CARE 

Our bags, purses and backpacks are made of synthetic leather, synthetic fiber and cotton. The materials require little maintenance and can be wonderfully combined with each other.

SYNTHETIC LEATHER

Our synthetic leather is extremely robust and comfortable to wear. Thanks to a PU (polyurethane) coating, the synthetic leather of our products looks and feels like real leather. We have been working with imitations of leather since 2008 and are enthusiastic about it.

PU leather.

But what exactly is PU leather and is it real leather?

PU is an abbreviation of PolyUrethane. It is imitation leather that is almost indistinguishable from the real thing.

It is therefore not surprising that it is confusing to determine whether the bag is made of genuine leather. A bag made of PU leather is common.

A leather grain has been incorporated into this material. It is almost indistinguishable from the real thing.

PU leather is a synthetic composition and this material contains 100% no animal substances.

Why PU Leather?

PU leather is strong PU leather can in some cases be nicer than 100% cow leather types in the lower quality category.

PU leather is colorfast, has no scars or burn marks. All bags made of this material are similar in appearance.

PU leather is easy to maintain and therefore also easy to clean.

PU leather should not be injected with water-repellent products before use and you do not have to be afraid of circles after, for example, a heavy rain shower.

PU leather is an affordable material, which makes it possible to categorize the price of a bag in an attractive segment.

Maintenance

Bags made of PU leather are quite easy to maintain.

It is advisable to clean your bag with a damp (microfibre) cloth. Stubborn stains can be removed with a damp cloth and green soap. Make sure you rinse it well with lukewarm water.

HYDROFLEX® is a new type of water-based and solvent-free artificial leather. Compared to conventional imitation leather, the production process is much more environmentally friendly and 100% DMFA-free. The fabric is very hard wearing with a high tensile strength and is also extremely robust and very light.

Care

Cleaning: synthetic leather does not require maintenance. If it is dirty, you can easily wipe your product with a damp cloth.

Daily handling:
• If your bag / backpack gets wet, let the product dry well afterwards.
• Do not load your bag / backpack too heavily and avoid contact with sharp or rough objects.
• Please do not use impregnation sprays, these could make the material brittle.

SYNTHETIC FIBER
Our synthetic fiber fabric is insensitive and easy to care for. The fabric has a water-repellent coating.

Care

Cleaning: If your product is dirty, you can easily wipe your product with a damp cloth. This can reduce the water-repellent coating and it should be re-impregnated with an appropriate agent.
Daily handling:
• If your bag / backpack gets wet, let the product dry well afterwards.

COTTON
Cotton is a pure natural product and a renewable raw material. Due to its finishing, the cotton fabric of your ZWEI product is UV-resistant and water-repellent. The fabric is processed gently and therefore particularly soft and adaptable.

Care

Cleaning: You can carefully remove dirt with a damp cloth. For more stubborn stains, you can use mild soap and a sponge. This can damage the coatings on the cotton. Therefore, you should re-impregnate your product with an appropriate agent.
