When Reloved says designer bags are an investment, we mean it. Our luxury purses are made of genuine leather, and that means they need to be taken care of.

Leather is a natural material and just like any other natural resource, it needs to be taken care of in order to last long. This kind of medium, whether faux or original, must be maintained every once in a while. If properly stored and used, a leather purse’s quality won’t be reduced with time. It won’t crack or peel in the long run.

What You Should Do

Take care of your designer purse with Reloved's Bag Care


There are certain ways to prolong your favored purse. To find out what these are, get a cue from Reloved’s list:

Stay clean.

Proper hygiene is important. If your hands are clean and dry, you won’t leave dirt on the bag. A spotless carry-on has no oil from food residue or ink marks from writings.

Do proper maintenance.

For the carry-on to stay in its original color and texture, you need a leather conditioner. This cleaner can be a little expensive but it’s a worthy investment; it toughens and protects the exterior of the leather bag and keeps the shine and vibrance you want.

Store it properly.

Placing your designer carryall in the closet is not enough. It needs to be stored on a frosted, acrylic shelf with proper ventilation. For a cheaper alternative, cover your purse with a dust bag.

All these steps can prevent a leather bag from softening, which leads to cracking or flaking of the skin material.

Stuff it with poppy.

A distinct structure is one of the most iconic features of a carry-on. Some women love a stylish, rectangular accessory like the Balenciaga City bag, while other ladies adore bags like the classic, cylindrical Louis Vuitton Monogram Papillon. If stuffed with poppy, the moisture, odor, and form of these bags will be maintained.

With its shiny, satin finish, poppy’s bag stuffers are customized based on specific designer bags. These stuffers keep the handbags in good quality and structured condition. It also prolongs the carry-on’s function.

Listen Promptly

A luxury purse is an essential part of a woman’s life; it needs to be taken care of. Clean, maintain, store, and stuff it to prolong its life and quality. Follow Reloved’s simple rules, and there’s no doubt your designer leather bag will look as good as new for a long, long time.
