2. Quit overfilling your bags
Whether it’s your leather-made duffel bag,or your soft purse, filling too many items or putting too much pressure inside your bag especially when you travel can cause irreversible damage. This type of damage is not ensured under warranty.
3. Plastic free
Plastics are not advisable for leather materials too! Plastic bags are not exactly breathable materials. Which means leather bags are more susceptible to deterioration and molds with it! Your leather bags and handbags should be stored in well-ventilated containers just like the dust bags that come along with your bag when you purchase it.
4. Avoid too much contact from the sun
Just like for us human beings, too much contact with sunlight can cause damage to our skin. The same thing goes with our leather materials. Too much sunlight can cause wrinkling and drying on the leather material. It is recommended to wipe it gently and not to expose the leather to heat if it is damp or soaking wet. Let it dry at room temperature even if it takes you longer.
5. Do a regular cleaning routine
Leather is prone to absorbing dirt; over time this breaks down, eventually leading to corrosion of the leather. You can avoid this from happening to your leather backpacks and especially to your designer leather bags by using solutions that are specifically made for cleaning leather materials. Using household cleaning materials to clean leather is not recommended as this would damage its composition. Another method is consistently wiping it with a moistened cloth and letting it dry on its own.
6. Moisturizing routine
Your leather pouch and bags need some pampering too! It is essential for your leather to have a routine care process to moisturize and maintain it. We wouldn’t want cracks in our leather now would we? That is why it is best to apply a small amount of an all-natural leather conditioner on your leather every so often.
