A Guide: Caring for Your leather Bag

Investing in a full grain leather bag is not just about owning an iconic accessory; it’s about owning a piece of craftsmanship that can last a lifetime if cared for properly.

If you are a sustainable fashion lover, you understand the importance of maintaining the pristine conditions of leather. Here’s how to care for your leather bag to keep it looking stunning for years to come!

Cleaning full grain leather

First it’s important to remember that full grain leather is like skin, can dry out over time, leading to dullness and cracks. However, here are a few steps to follow to keep your bag vibrant and hydrated.

  1. Start by wiping down the body of the bag with a soft, damp cloth to remove any dust or dirt on the surface.
  2. For a deeper cleaning, we recommend using a leather cleaner.

Apply a small amount to a soft cloth and gently massage it in circular motions into the leather. Wipe away any excess with another soft cloth.

3. Protect your bag from moisture! Leather is susceptible to water damage, so keep your bag dry and away from rain or spills! If it does get wet, gently clean with a dry cloth and let it dry away from heat.

Where and how should I store my bag?

  1. We recommend storing your Ethny bag in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight!
  2. Avoid hanging your bag for too long! Straps and handles can stretch with time.
  3. Don’t overstuff your bag. It can strain the leather and change its shape! Carry only the essentials
  4. Use your bag! Don’t be afraid to wear it regularly, as leather nourishes naturally from the oil of your hands.
  5. Maintain its shape by inserting a bag pillow, or small towel when not in use to preserve its original form.

When it comes to textile…

If your leather bag suffers from a spillage, spot cleaning is your best friend! Gently dab the area with a clean cloth dampened with mild soap and water. Avoid rubbing too hard as it may damage the weaving and spread the stain further!

By following these tips, we can ensure you that your favorite Ethny bag will last a life-time! It will remain a timeless piece in your wardrobe for many years to come.
