About Dooney & Bourke's It Bags
Dooney & Bourke's It bags are made from their signature line of weather-treated cotton, much like a raincoat, with blue leather trim and sky blue lining. It bag's are composed of fabric that is 100% cotton and coated with poly-vinyl. The trim is 100% Vacchetta leather and features light gold-plated hardware. No creams, polishes or cleansers should be applied to any part of the items in these groups. Stains will blend into the light trim, as it is a natural characteristic of this leather to darken, over time and with exposure to light. Should the vinyl become soiled, a very slightly water dampened, cloth may be used to gently wipe the area.
