No! Never store your bag by looping the handles over a doorknob or wardrobe door: this will damage the leather of the handle and misshape the bag.
If you’re wondering how to rehydrate a dry leather handbag, you might need to moisturize the fabric with a specialist cream.
Keeping studs, crystals, chains and locks scratch-free can be difficult especially if your show casing your designer bag on a big night out! Whilst gentle knocks and dings are all part of usual wear-and-tear, when not using your bag, you can mould tissue paper around the metalwork to prevent scrapes and unsightly scratches.
It’s important to keep your leather products out of the sunshine and in a cool, dry place where the fabric can breathe; this prevents the leather from drying out and cracking.
The first step to a clean leather handbag is brushing the fabric with a damp cloth; We do not recommend using any cleaning product, just lukewarm water. Once the leather is clean, use a soft dry towel to remove any moisture, then allow the bag to dry in a room-temperature environment.
After cleaning you should consider applying a leather moisturiser to keep the bag in pristine condition.
