We do realize that it cannot be avoided that your beautiful Njorð byElements case picks up some dirt during usage.
Don't worry, all our cases feature our Premium Danish Fabrics by Gabriel, fabrics that have been designed for intensive use and to allow cleaning.
We have gathered a best practice list for you for spot and stain removal.


A Golden Rule

  • Salmon Leather: In the case of a spill, dry the spot immediately using a power towel or other soft cloth. Blot, do not wipe, or it will smear and sink further into your Salmon Leather. If the Salmon Leather is stained, try mixing mild soap with water and applying the suds to a cloth (do not get the cloth wet) and wipe it across the stain. If grease is staining your leather, sprinkle a tiny amount of corn starch on the stain and leave it overnight. Afterward, gently brush it off with a soft, bristled brush. The starch should absorb the grease.
  • Fabrics & Suede: Always remove the spot as quickly as possible. Most types of spot can be removed with lukewarm water possibly with a tiny drop of neutral detergent such as hand soap or shampoo. Moisten the spot, apply a tiny drop of neutral detergent such as hand soap or shampoo. Let is soak in a few minutes and gently rinse off the soap and let the case dry naturally.
  • Do not soak the entire case.
  • Use only the cleaning methods specified in the guide to spots.
  • Always use a clean white cotton cloth and use only small quantities of cleaning agent at a time.
  • Warning! Do not use a hairdryer or heating to dry your case.
  • Warning! Benzene, acetone and similar products may damage the case if used excessively.

Care Information for Salmon Leather

Generally, a clean, dry cloth is all you will need to keep it clean. Brush gently across the surface to remove dust build up. It is important to brush in the direction of the scales for minimal abrasive damage to the salmon leather and possibility of peeling the salmon leather. Also avoid placing your salmon leather in direct sunlight and high heat as it can hasten the wear and tear of any type of leather.

The processing of fish leather is similar to that of exotic leather.

It is essential, however, to take into account that in the handling of fish leather special care and attention is required, due to the possible frailty of the scales. Please notice that due the natural process the leather can change. To take good care of your bag try using a protection and care leather spray at least once a month.

Facts about leather:Salmon Leather is a natural product which means that every piece is unique. You will notice on some that there are a faint line running lengthwise over the whole material. The line you see on the side of the wallet is called the lateral line. All bony fish, including salmon, have this specialized row of distinctive scales that are located on the side of the salmon from the gill plate to the base of the tail. Holes in the scales are connected by canals to the central nervous system.Among other specialized functions, the lateral line can detect movement and vibrations that occur near the fish. For example, a salmon can detect a bear walking in the stream, even in silty water where fish cannot see danger.
