Bag Care 101: Your Guide to Keeping Luxury Bags Fabulous

Hey there bag lover! πŸ‘œ We know you adore your luxury bags as much as we do, so we've put together this handy guide to help you keep them looking as fabulous as the day you brought them home. Whether you're rocking full-grain leather, suede, or shiny patent leather, we've got you covered with some do's and don'ts to keep your bags in top-notch condition. Let's dive in!

1. General Care

Do's

  • Give your bag some love with a gentle wipe-down using a soft, dry cloth to keep it dust-free.
  • Treat your bag to a little TLC with a leather conditioner made just for its type to keep it soft and supple.
  • When not strutting your stuff, tuck your bag away in a cozy dust bag or pillowcase to keep it safe and sound.
  • Switch up your bag rotation to spread the love and keep them all looking fresh.


Don'tsΒ 

  • Say no to direct sunlight and heat, they're not your bag's BFFs! They can cause fading and drying out.
  • Keep the harsh stuff away! That means no abrasive cleaners, alcohol-based products, or harsh chemicals, okay?
  • Don't overload your bag! It's not a pack mule. Overstuffing can warp its shape and stress those seams.
  • Plastic bags and airtight containers? Nope! They're a no-go zone for your leather buddy. They trap moisture and that's a recipe for mold city!


2. Types of Leather

a. Full-Grain Leather

Do's

  • Pamper your full-grain beauty with a leather conditioner to keep its natural oils and patina in check.
  • Got scratches? Buff 'em out gently with a soft cloth or some leather conditioner magic.
  • If your bag gets caught in the rain, give it some air to dry off naturally, away from heaters and such.


Don'ts

  • Hands off the water and soap, buddy! Full-grain leather doesn't play nice with them.
  • Humidity? Not the best friend of full-grain leather. Keep it cool and dry, okay?


b. Suede Leather


Do's

  • Brush off dirt and stains with a suede brush or eraser. Easy does it!
  • Give your suede buddy some breathing room in a dust bag to keep it cozy.
  • Raindrops keep falling on your suede? Protect it with a suede protector spray.


Don'ts

  • Water and suede? Nope, not a match made in heaven. Keep them apart.
  • Easy on the elbow grease! Rubbing suede too hard can mess with its nap.


c. Patent Leather

Do's

  • Polish up your patent pal with a soft, damp cloth to keep fingerprints at bay.
  • Keep your shiny friend out of direct sunlight to avoid any color fading.
  • Give it a little extra shine with a patent leather conditioner. Sparkle on!


Don'ts

  • Keep the alcohol and abrasives away from your patent star. They're not invited to the party.
  • Plastic bags are a no-no for patent leather. They can make it sticky and tacky. Ew, no thanks!


3. Storage

Do's:

  • Find a cool, dry spot away from the spotlight for your bag to chill.
  • Snuggle it up in a dust bag or pillowcase to shield it from dust and light.
  • Give it some shape love! Stuff it gently with tissue paper or bubble wrap for a cozy nap.


Dont's

  • Humidity and leather bags? Not a power couple. Keep your bag away from damp environments.
  • Hanging your bag by its straps for too long? Nah, that's a stretch we don't need.
