Buying and Maintaining Leather HandBags


  As a Chanel handbags fan, you may possess more than one classic handbag. Yes, brand new handbags are very attractive, but as time goes by, your investments may lose their original charm. In fact, handbags are humanlike. Leather handbags, which is made from animal skin, also have a lifespan, and its length is largely depended on your maintenance. Leather handbags need to be cared for, conditioned and cured regularly to keep it in sound condition. Then how do you condition and moisturise your leather Chanel handbags? Here's how to take care of your investment in an expensive Chanel leather handbag so it will wear well for years to come.

Firstly, just use the bag when you first get it. Immediate clean after buying is not necessary unless the designer suggests it for the particular finish of the leather. On rare occasions, you might need to apply a protector immediately, but that should be specified by the designer.

Secondly, if you live in a rather dry district or your handbag is exposed to an artificial dry heat source, you'll need to make regular conditioning and moisturising part of the routine. Some products, like MPB Leather Care, are designed to condition and moisturise the leather, so that it stays supple and smooth. When doing the maintenance, please remember to brush the leather evenly following its nature direction using a soft hair brush.

Thirdly, If you forget taking care of your bag for a long time, it may crack like chapped hands. Once leather cracks, it will never look the same again. If there is a stain on your handbag, some leather cleaners will be very helpful. But cleaner is not meant to be used regularly. Use it only when there's a stain or spot, or when your bag is particularly dirty. On other conditions, wiping your handbags with a damp cloth to remove dust and dirt is enough.

Fourthly, about storing a leather handbag. When the handbag retrieve from present season’s fashion trend and you plan to keep it for later use,, fill it with tissue paper or cotton or kapok garment to keep its shape. Extra attention should be paid to avoid distortion of the shape from improper extrusion. Then place it in its dust bag. If a dust bag is not available, a pillowcase will also work so as to keep it from getting dusty while stored. The cabinet used to store the handbags must with good ventilation, a cabinet with slate doors is appreciated, and meanwhile, you do better not put too many goods in the cabinet.
