How to protect your handmade leather crafts

Tips and Tricks !

You need to be careful with your fine leather briefcase, bag and accessories. In this article, we have collected some insane tips and tricks on how to do this and clean your leather bags.

Keep your leather crafts away from the water !

We cannot control the weather or when it will rain, but it is almost inevitable that your leather bags will be exposed to puddles and spills of rain. With these simple steps you can protect your handmade crafts from water damage. I love my leather bags, my most precious possession, and I freak out when they get spilled because I have no idea how water stains get into them.

First of all, do not mix water and leather, as leather is permeable and a high-quality leather bag is affected by rain showers. Never leave your bag saturated with water and do not leave it in the rain. Depending on the dryness, humidity and climate, a conditioner should be applied to keep the leather soft and supple. When you care for your leather goods, it is important to apply conditioner at least once a week, depending on the dryness and humidity of your climate. In addition to hydration and cleaning your leather case, you can also remove dust to prevent it from getting into the material.

If you want to enjoy your leather bag for a long time, it is crucial that you store it well-kept. This should allow you to extend the life of the leather item beyond what it would achieve on its own.  Store your leather bag after use and store it in a dust bag for a few days or even a week. If your leather bag starts getting dirty, wipe it with a damp cloth. Make sure you clean the outside of your leather bags and clean them often, as well as the inside of the bag. Use a slightly damp cloth to wipe the lining of your leather bag to remove any dust or residue left behind and any items you carry in the bag. You should use a clean lint-free cloth to wipe leather bags. That is why it is so important if you want to enjoy your leather bag and other small accessories for as long as possible. Therefore, it is important that you take care of them by cleaning them, ideally at least every six months. When cleaning leather bags, don’t forget to clean all the accessories you carry.

Bonus tips : Pets are easy to attack and scratch leather bags and duffel bags, so never let them play with your leather bag.

Leather cream and care

It is recommended that you care your handmade leather bags regularly with leather cream or wax to maintain its softness and shine. If you care your bags with a normal olive oil-leather conditioning, the small scratches you get from the days you wear them will be hidden as well. Please do not use any detergents or cleaning agents on Kaillou leather bags, as it discolors the leather and can destroy the beauty of the bag.
