Care and maintenance tips for leather handmade bag

  1. Keep your leather bags dry: Leather is a porous material that can absorb water and other liquids, which can cause discoloration, warping, and other damage. Be sure to avoid exposing your bags to rain or spills, and dry them immediately if they do get wet.

  2. Avoid extreme temperatures: High heat or cold can cause leather to dry out and crack, so be sure to store your bags in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or heat sources.

  3. Clean your bags regularly: Use a soft, damp cloth to wipe down your bags and remove any dirt or stains. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, which can damage the leather.

  4. Condition your leather bags: Leather can dry out over time, so it's important to condition your bags regularly to keep them supple and soft. Use a high-quality leather conditioner that's appropriate for the type of leather used in your bags.

  5. Store your bags properly: When you're not using your bags, store them in a dust bag or cotton pillowcase to protect them from dust and light. Avoid storing them in plastic or non-breathable materials, as this can cause moisture to build up and damage the leather.

  6. Handle your bags with care: Avoid overloading your bags or carrying heavy items that could stretch or damage the leather. Be gentle when opening and closing zippers or clasps, and avoid over-stuffing your bags.

By following these care and maintenance tips, you can help ensure that your handmade leather bags stay looking beautiful and in top condition for years to come.
