Maintaining the coated canvas

To keep your favorite handbag looking like new or to get rid of pesky stains, gently scrub with a sponge using warm soapy water. If the stain persists, try adding a few drops of white vinegar to the soapy water.

Avoid using hard, powder based detergents and abrasive sponges as they may damage the coating. Dry with a clean soft cloth.

Nothing like gram’s cleaning remedies, right?

Handbags tips & tricks - Maintaining the metallic hardware

Maintaining the metallic hardware

Personally, we love things that shine! To preserve the shine of medallions, clips and other metallic bits and pieces, avoid contact with water or perfumes; Also be cautious of hand creams and lotions that may dull the hardware over time.

A quick wipe with a clean cloth from time to time and your handbag will shine bright!

Properly store your handbag

To ensure the longevity of your handbag, store while not in use: we recommend storing it in the original box, but if you don’t have the space, in a small cloth dustbag.

If the handbag is supple, fold it and store flat. Stuff with tissue paper to help maintain the form of round or rigid handbags, like the bucket bag. Keep handbags away from heat and moisture.
