CARING FOR YOUR VINTAGE LEATHER BAG
Follow these 3 tips to ensure your beloved leather bag has a good, long life.
*Always spot-test products before applying to your entire bag!
1. Condition Consistently
At least once a year, apply a high-quality leather conditioner with a soft sponge or cloth. Massage the conditioner into the leather, then wipe off any excess with a clean, dry cloth. If you live in a dry climate, you really ought to do this every couple of months. If your climate is more humid, every 6 months to a year will suffice.
2. Manage Moisture
If water spills onto your bag, blot (do not rub) the moisture away with a dry cloth as quickly as possible. *If the moisture is from winter weather, remember that it probably contains some amount of salt-based products, so a moist cloth should be used. After blotting away excess moisture, allow the leather to air dry.
3. Remember the Interior
We love the aged exterior of a leather bag as much as you do - but don’t forget the interior. Make a habit of wiping down the inside of your bag once a month. Use a slightly damp cloth to clean the lining of your bag and remove the dust and residue from items you’ve carried. Then, prop the bag open to air dry the interior.
