CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA CARE GUIDE

Your Charlotte Olympia shoes and accessories have been handmade using the finest materials. Natural materials and textiles are not flawless, that's what make them unique! We suggest you follow the below instructions to ensure that your latest purchase remains in perfect condition.

SUEDE:

Our shoes are made with kid skins tanned in traditional methods to make them resistant and flexible. To maintain the quality of this product we recommended you clean delicately with a suitable soft rubber and protect from damp conditions.

NAPPA:

Our shoes are made with lamb skins tanned with traditional methods to make them resistant and flexible and brushed delicately with natural wax. To maintain the quality of the product we advise you to clean delicately with a damp cloth and keep away from heat and dampness.

CALFSKIN:

Our shoes are made with calf skins tanned in traditional methods and brushed with natural wax to accentuate the shine and colour, some irregular veins or marks present within the skins signify a natural tanning process. To maintain the quality of the product we advise to clean delicately with a damp cloth and keep away from heat.

MIRRORED EFFECT LEATHER:

Our shoes are made with a mirror effect on a calf base tanned in a natural way. The uniqueness of this material is given by a metallic laminate applied to the skins which make it shiny and reflective. This material is very delicate and therefore any knocks will cause scratches. To maintain shiny and clean this material can be cleaned delicately with a damp cloth and kept away from heat and dampness.

SILK SATIN:

Our shoes are made with precious textiles, to maintain these characteristics we recommend you protect them from water and humidity, keeping them away from heat sources and keep them in their protective dustbag.

VELVET:

Our velvet is best cleaned through spot treatment using a gentle solvent applied directly to the fabric and removed by blotting the area with a soft, damp cloth. Do not rub. Lent and other particles can be removed using an adhesive roller.

PVC:

Due to the synthetic nature of PVC, the material tends to cling to the foot. This means that perspiration can be present between the skin and the PVC shoe.We recommend you clean after use and to keep away from heat and very cold temperatures. PVC is a synthetic material which heats from body contact and therefore as soon as its worn it will become soft and flexible.

HAND MADE EMBROIDERIES:

Our shoes are made with embroideries created by hand and any differences and irregularity are the result of the uniqueness of artisanal work. Applications are with natural stones applied with natural anti allergenic threads.

HOTFIX:

Our shoes are made using hotfix Swarovski crystals applied with heat using latest modern techniques. We recommend that you keep the shoes dry and keep them away from heat and humidity. Any knocks can cause the crystals to break or fall. To keep them clean we suggest you use a damp cloth delicately.

METAL ACCESSORIES:

The galvanic content of our accessories is nickel free to avoid any irritation on contact with the foot. Any glues used to apply to our shoes are water based and therefore not harmful to health. To maintain the shine you should clean with a woollen cloth which will enhance the gold or silver present in the metal plating.

LEATHER ACCESSORIES:

Our Leather accessories are made with calf skins tanned in traditional methods and brushed with natural wax to accentuate the shine and colour, some irregular veins or marks present within the skins signify a natural tanning process. To maintain the quality of the product we advise to clean delicately with a damp cloth and keep away from heat.
