Are monsoons threatening to ruin your precious leather bag? Here's how you can protect them.
Dry off: If your leather bag gets wet in rain, the best way to dehumidify the bag is to empty it out and leave it in an airy dry place or an air-conditioned room to dry well.
Stay put: A leather bag should be allowed to dry naturally and never near a heater or in direct sunlight.
Nourish well: Restore the balance of natural oils, enhance the leather’s shine and protect from fungal growth by rubbing a leather cream or wax on it.
Store well: Keep your leather bag in a cloth bag for longevity and to protect it from dust and humidity.
Change often: Rotate the use of your bags and periodically take out your leather bag and air it.
