It’s a fact of life: stains happen. Fine leather bags—the end product of painstaking, ritualized craftsmanship—deserve to be treated with care. Here's how to protect your investment piece in five easy steps
Know Your Skins
Everyday dirt can be cleaned using a damp, clean cloth. Wipe gently to wash away any grime to keep your bag looking as good as new!
When cleaning your leather purse, remember that all genuine leather was once a living hide. First and foremost, animal skins needs to breathe.
If the bag includes parts or panels of other materials, such as the skin of a snake or crocodile, owners should probably abandon the idea of cleaning it themselves and take it to a professional right away. In general, the more exotic the material, the more difficult it is to clean while still preserving its original look and value.
How To Clean
Remove stains as soon as you notice them. Organic stains from food or blood can often be removed with chalk powder. Crush white chalk, let it sit on the stain overnight and dust it off with a clean cloth.
Never spray any cleaning product (even watered down) straight onto your leather bag; rather, spray the solution onto your towel , then gently wipe the bag.
Avoid cleaning products with alcohol, turpentine or other mineral spirits as they will discolour and dry out leather.
How To Condition
Occasionally, owners may want to treat their leather purse with a special moisturizer. This substance is uniquely designed for leather bags and helps the material retain its flexibility and its shine.
How To Weatherproof
If leather gets too wet: Dry it slowly. Speed drying leather changes its chemical structure, and you end up with stiff crinkle cut chaos.
How To Store
