Taking care if your leather bag
If you buy a leather bag from Maes & Hills, you want to keep using it for a long time. To increase the lifespan of your bag, it is important to take care of it. We would like to give you a few tips. Use an impregnating spray before using the bag When you receive your new Maes & Hills bag, don’t just start using it. First spray the leather with an impregnating agent. This special spray creates a protective layer on the leather, making it more resistant to damage. The layer protects against liquids and superficial damage like scratches. It is a good idea to keep using the impregnating agent. If you use your bag every day, spray it once per month. If you use your bag less often, spraying it once per two months should suffice. Keep your bag away from heat Leather can’t deal well with heat. Heat makes the material dry. This means that you shouldn’t place your handmade bag near a heater, not even when your bag is wet. It is also not a good idea to expose your bag to direct sunlight for a long period of time. A few minutes of sunlight is no problem, for example when you’re walking outside, but hours of exposure is not good. Avoid the sun and other heat sources as much as possible to keep the leather beautiful. Act correctly in case of stains Even if you’re very careful with your bag, it may become stained. This isn’t the end of the world, but you do need to take the right steps in case of a stain. It is important to not rub at the stain or use a dry or wet cloth to rub at the stain. What’s better is to use a clean and dry cloth to dab at the stain. This will largely get rid of the stain. You could also bring your bag to a leather expert. The expert can often get rid of the stain entirely. Extra tip: use leather salve for dry leather A leather bag has a long lifespan,but after a few years of heavy use, the leather may become a little dry. Fortunately, this doesn’t mean you have to throw your handmade leather bag away. If the leather is dry, you can simply use leather salve to reinvigorate the leather. Don’t use too much; just take a small amount and rub it on your bag. When the salve has dried, you can use your leather bag like before. The material of your bag won’t be dry anymore! Note: don’t use too much leather salve, because the leather might become too supple. This means that your beautiful bag may lose its shape, which is obviously not what you want. It’s better to use too little salve and apply a few layers rather than too much all at once. You don’t need much leather salve for a good result: just a small amount gives your bag a real boost.
