How to resist bad weather?
Before you rush out to show all your friends your latest fashionable bag, protect it from stains with a waterproofing agent. Nothing worse than water to damage a leather, it makes it lose its shape, but also its luster.

How to clean your leather bag?
The first step for a clean leather handbag is to brush the fabric with a soft, dry cloth, which quickly and efficiently removes surface stains. This operation is to be repeated every two days, around. It does not take more than a few minutes but will preserve the appearance of your leather for a very long time.
Your handbag is constantly in contact with your hands, the different floors and furniture on which you put it, so it carries many germs. Remember to completely clean your bag and especially the handles.
Where should I store my leather handbag?
If your leather handbag is already stored properly, this is a good start. Above all, keep them out of the sun, in a cool, dry place where the fabric can breathe, to prevent the leather from drying out and cracking. Keep the product in its “dust-bag” and if it is delivered in a box, store it inside, with sachets of silica gel to remove all humidity. Air once every two weeks to stop mold growth. Avoid at all costs storing your bag if it is wet or dirty, clean it before.
“If for Marylin diamonds are a woman’s best friend, for many of us it would rather be the handbag.” Large, small, of all colors, in leather or fabric, there is something for everyone (and all budgets).
If you don’t have a dust bag or storage box, you can use a pillowcase or hang them high on a hook or hanger by stuffing them with tissue paper or newspaper to don’t let them warp.
