When not in use, preserve the beauty of your leather handbag by storing it with care. To keep your bag looking its best, remember the following storage tips:

Store in a well-ventilated area

Leather is a natural, breathing material that requires careful storage to maintain its beauty. To prevent moisture buildup, mould, and mildew, avoid storing your bag in airtight containers. Additionally, keep your bag away from direct sunlight, which can cause fading and discoloration. By storing your bag in a well-ventilated area, you'll help preserve its natural beauty and extend its lifespan

Make use of the dust bag made of fabric

For added protection and storage, many of our leather products come with a complimentary fabric dust bag. This thoughtful touch allows your leather bag to breathe while shielding it from harmful light exposure. To further ensure optimal storage conditions, we include a silica gel packet with your bag, which effectively manages moisture levels and prevents damage. By storing your leather bag in its dust bag with the silica gel packet, you'll enjoy lasting beauty and durability.

Packing - but not overpacking

To maintain the carefully crafted shape of your leather bag, it's essential to take extra care when not in use. Leather's natural suppleness can cause it to flatten over time, so we recommend padding your bag with the tissue paper provided in your Grains & Tan order. Additionally, avoid overfilling your handbag, as this can stretch the leather and compromise its original shape. By taking these simple steps, you'll help preserve the beautiful silhouette of your bag and ensure it remains a staple in your collection for years to come.
