How to take care of your precious leather hand bag.
The most important thing to remember about your leather handbag or leather briefcase is that leather breathes. This means that it’s appearance is influenced by the environment in which it is used and stored. Any kind of leather, even those that are treated, will eventually absorb excess moisture and in doing so will change the appearance of your leather bag. Especially creating a problem with unwanted moulds, smells and dis coloration.
When your handbag, bag, briefcase or even a leather accessory is not in use it is best to store them in a soft cloth bag.
It is also imperative that it has a large enough opening so that it is easy to slip the bag inside and so there is no need to bend or fold the bag in an un-natural way during the storage.
Yet they can double the life of your leather bag investment!
We suggest that you follow these simple steps to stuffing your bag to good health!
When stuffing the bag you should bunch up a couple pieces of tissue paper in order to give the roll some thickness.
Place them on a flat sheet of tissue paper and start to roll them up.
Fold the ends of the tissue paper over the top to make the roll as long as the bag is wide – you are making this to fit into the base of the bag to help it keep its form, so in other words the roll you are making should be as long and wide as the bag itself. If the briefcase or handbag is divided into several sections then you should make the rolls separately so that each section gets filled. You will create the height of the bag by making more rolls to fit in.
Gently stuff the rolls into your leather bag – there is no need to fill the bag too much, just enough that it will stand and look as if it were full – showing no creases or unnatural folds. Once you have finished putting the paper in the bag you can slip it in to the protective cover and draw the strings closed. Be sure to store the bag free and clear of other objects that might push into the bag and change the form.
