How to Care for Your Leather Bags

Brought to you in collaboration with Jeeves of Belgravia


We've partnered with Jeeves, London's finest dry cleaners and accessory care specialists, with locations around the world including New York, to give you tips on how to care for your bags.


Cleaning

  • Wipe down your bag with a clean hand towel to remove any surface oil
  • Any serious stains should be worked on by a bag cleaning specialist prior to storage

Maintenance

  • Minor damages and repairs should be made as soon as possible. Small issues can quickly become larger problems through normal daily use.

Stain Removal

  • All stain removal techniques should be tested on an unexposed area of the leather bag. If the home technique does not work, seek a handbag cleaning expert.

How to Remove Water Stains

  • Use a few drops of dish washing liquid (i.e. Dawn) in a quart of warm water
  • Using a clean sponge, dip the sponge in the dish washing liquid and warm water solution
  • Wring out all excess water until the sponge is just damp
  • Gently wipe the water stain
  • Allow to air dry

How to Remove Ink Stains

  • Use a cotton ball with a tiny bit of rubbing alcohol
  • Dab the ink stain, do not rub
  • If you see the ink transferring to the cotton ball, continue until ink is removed
  • Condition the ink stained area after cleaning. This may lighten the leather around the stained area.

Leather Conditioner for Your Bags

  • Jeeves likes the Furniture Clinic's Leather Protection Cream
  • It's recommended that you condition your leather bags every six months
  • Only leather bags should be conditioned and never suede

Storage

  • Bags should be stored in their dust cover / dust bag inside your closet
  • Do not stack bags
  • Bags should be stored empty (remove pens, make up, coins etc.)
  • Acid-free tissue and bubble wrap work well as bag stuffers to help keep the shape of your bags when stored.
  • To prevent any mould and damage when the climate is humid, use a moldicide solution that can help prevent and kill existing spores on leather. Spray a product such as Siamons International 025/326 Concrobium Mold Control Trigger Spray,which can be found on online, on a clean towel and apply gently.
  • The ideal room temperature to store your bags in is around 72 ºF or 22-23 ºC. If the temperature gets much hotter than this, you may want to check your bags to make sure there is no heat damage.
Sustainable leather bags made from materials that are by-products from existing farming practices, such as the food industry, are able to provide livelihood for artisans rather than being discarded.
