Our goal in making care goods for luxury handbags is to preserve the integrity of your bag and give it a long life of looking great. Much like the designers of the luxury handbags that our clients love, we understand that the key to achieving our goal is using the best possible materials when we make our products. One of our favorites is the Ultrasuede fabric that we use in many of our products.
Ultrasuede is a synthetic microfiber material that combines the elegance of suede leather and the ease of care of microfiber. We think it’s a great blend of style and functionality that will serve you well when you buy a No Sacrifice Bags product.
Developed by Japanese scientist in the 1970’s, Ultrasuede is easy to clean, long lasting, and beautiful. We feel passionately that it offers our customers the best of the best in terms of materials, so we wanted to explain why we chose it for your product and how you can take care of it.
Ultrasuede, believe it or not, is machine washable. Because our products are designed to care for your bags, we know that they’re going to get a little dirty. After all, the point is that the care goods will take the hard usage and not your bag.
If your material gets soiled or stained, you can toss it into the laundry machine! If you want to take it to the next step, they’re also fine to dry clean or spot treat with water.
In terms of regular maintenance, all they need is a monthly brushing down with a lint roller. If any staining happens, it can be easily blotted off with a damp paper towel, which is much easier that what you have to do to clean leather. Leather should be kept dry, and suede especially shouldn’t be wet. Ultrasuede, however, doesn’t have that limitation, so it’s easy to get stains out.
Ultrasuede almost never requires ironing, which means that your product is going to look crisp and elegant for a long time. However, if you’d like to, it can be ironed on low heat with a protective sheet between the iron and the fabric.
A good brushing can help the fabric avoid any stiffness. Simply take a soft bristled fabric brush and give any stiff or dirty areas a brushing down. Stop brushing when the fabric looks nice and tousled. To give you an idea, you don’t want to brush so hard that you loosen the fibers, but just enough to slightly move the fabric around and rejuvenate it.
A fabric brush can be inexpensively bought in the store, but you could also use a new toothbrush. Be sure the toothbrush is new, because you don’t want any particles working their way into the fabric leftover from anything else the toothbrush has touched.
Strength and Durability
Ultrasuede emulates the look and softness of leather without any of its weaknesses or difficulty of care, so you’re not going to have to worry about an excessive care routine. The fabric will hold its shape and last a long time, enhanced by the strength that synthetic fabric can lend.
Ultrasuede also isn’t a brand new material with no track record. Wonder products come and go, but we didn’t want to make our goods with a material that might fall apart two years from now because it hadn’t been tested enough. It was a priority for us to find an established product that was sturdy and looked great, and we felt that Ultrasuede fit the bill.
We feel confident in that Ultrasuede’s scientific origins and beautiful appearance will serve you and your handbag well for years to come. We know that your handbags deserve care items that are as thoughtfully made as the bags themselves are, but you shouldn’t have to compromise on style and appearance to get great quality.
