7 Ways to Prolong
the Life of your Handbag
One of the great things about a von Holzhausen bag is that it gets more beautiful with age. The more you wear the bag, the more supple the leather will become. However, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look after your bag in the best possible way.
A leather bag requires a certain care, just like your leather shoes do. Here are a few ways to prolong the life of your leather handbag:
Always store your von Holzhausen bag in the duster it came in. The soft cotton keeps your bag dust free.
Do not keep your leather bag in a damp place, or in direct sunlight, for that matter. Both will dry out and deteriorate the leather.
If you need to clean your bag, use a cleaner especially made for leather. (Applying this cleaner one or two times a year depending on use should keep your bag clean.)
To keep your von Holzhausen bag supple, moisturize with a leather conditioner.
To maintain the shape of your bag, stuff it with tissue paper when you’re not using it.
Never allow water to soak into your bag. If it does happen, pad it dry with a hand towel and allow the bag to air dry.
Love your bag!
