The shopper bag: a spacious bag with a large compartment
Many people confuse shopper bags with standard handbags, but they really are two different kinds of bags. A handbag is not only smaller, but also has multiple compartments. A shopper bag is bigger: it is often longer than a standard handbag and may also be wider. The bag doesn’t have multiple compartments: there is just one big compartment. Sometimes a small extra compartment is added to the side of the bag, but not always. A leather shopper bag is characterised by its big and spacious compartment in which you can store anything. You can carry a shopper bag in your hand, but you can also sling it across your shoulder. The handles of the leather shopper are certainly long enough for that. You can also alternate between carrying it over your shoulder and in your hand. This is nice, especially if you have many things with you and the leather shopper is a bit heavy. By alternating between shoulder and hand, you avoid straining.
The advantages of a leather tote bag
Maes & Hills sells leather tote bags. Leather is not just a pretty material: it also has a long lifespan. If you buy a leather shopper at Maes & Hills you are guaranteed to enjoy your bag for many years to come. Leather is also very durable. If you use your leather shopper bag every day, you don’t have to worry about it breaking any time soon. Any scratches in the leather as a result of heavy use are practically invisible. Another advantage of a leather shopper bag is the fact that leather only becomes more beautiful the more it is used. A bag made of another material will become damaged when used often, leather doesn’t have this problem. When the material gets older, your bag will only look more characteristic and beautiful. Your leather shopper will still be beautiful in 5 years, and in 10 years it will be more beautiful than ever.

Maintenance of a leather shopper
Leather lasts for many years and only becomes more beautiful the more often you use it, but you do need to take care of it correctly. First of all, it is important to regularly spray your Maes & Hills bag with a high-quality impregnating spray for leather. By spraying your bag with this spray, you will cover your bag with a thin protective layer. This layer protects the bag from damage, for example due to humidity. Don’t just spray your bag before first use, but keep doing so. It’s best to use the impregnating spray once per month, so that your bag keeps shining for years. In addition, it is important to protect your leather bag from heat. If you put your bag near a heater or in direct sunlight, the leather will become dehydrated and ugly. If your bag becomes soaked, let it dry at room temperature and keep it away from sunlight. It’s a bad idea to place your bag near a heater, because the leather may suffer. If you’re on a terrace with your leather bag, it’s best to put it in the shade underneath your chair. This will make sure the leather stays good. Finally, it is important to act correctly when your bag becomes stained. Don’t rub at the stain, but try to remove it gently by dabbing at it with a dry cloth. If the stain doesn’t go away completely, you can choose to bring your bag to a leather expert. Leather experts have special products to treat your bag. Maybe you won’t even see the stain anymore when they’re done. By being as careful as possible with your leather shopper bag, you can avoid stains. Prevention is better than cure, so be careful with your beautiful new item of Maes & Hills.
