Here are five essential tips for caring for leather bags:


Regular Cleaning:

Use a soft, damp cloth to gently wipe the surface of the leather bag to remove surface dirt and dust. For deeper cleaning, consider using a leather cleaner, but always test on a small, inconspicuous area first.


Leather can dry out and lose its natural oils over time. To prevent this, apply a leather conditioner or cream every few months. This will keep the leather supple and prevent it from becoming brittle or cracking.
Avoid Direct Sunlight and Heat:

Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or heat can cause the leather to fade and dry out. Always store your leather bag in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

Protect from Moisture and Spills:

If your leather bag gets wet, do not use a hairdryer or place it near a heater. Instead, wipe off the excess water with a soft cloth and let it air dry naturally. If you spill something on the bag, blot it gently (don't rub) with a clean, dry cloth.


Proper Storage:

When not in use, store your leather bag in its original dust bag or a cotton pillowcase. This will protect it from dust and scratches. Stuff the bag with bubble wrap or tissue paper to maintain its shape, but avoid using newspaper as the ink can transfer. Keep the straps or handles of the bag upright to prevent them from developing creases.
