Caring For Your Handbag

A Malone Souliers handbag is meticulously crafted to be cherished and enjoyed for years to come. With the right care and attention, your beloved handbag, clutch, or shoulder bag will stand the test of time. Explore hero styles designed in an array of carefully selected materials as we delve into the art of caring for your designer handbags. From cleaning techniques to storage solutions, our expert guide offers invaluable tips to preserve the beauty and longevity of your favourite accessories.

  

 

In The Details

 
At Malone Souliers, we source the finest raw materials from the best Italian tanneries. Calf leather, renowned for its velvety softness and robust grain, offers exceptional durability and malleability. This allows us to craft seamless shapes like the distinctive curved silhouette of our Divine shoulder bag and add intricate finishes like the stamped marble-effect embossing of the mini Audrey. To care for calf leather bags, it’s best to avoid greasy creams and use a soft brush to gently remove dirt, followed by a cotton chamois for shine restoration.
 

Day-To-Day

 

Dedicating time to the care of your designer handbags not only preserves their value but also ensures they maintain their pristine appearance over time. Proper storage is paramount for leather handbag care. When not in use, store your handbag in its original dust bag – specifically designed to prevent squashing and warping. It's advised to avoid direct sunlight exposure to prevent fading and refrain from overfilling to maintain the bag's original shape.

 
For canvas and satin pieces, particularly those in lighter shades, a dust bag serves as an effective safeguard against dust and sunlight, helping to preserve their colour and texture. If the original dust bag is unavailable, a clean, white cotton pillowcase can serve as a suitable alternative.

 

   
 

Deep Clean

 
Caring for designer handbags will vary based on factors like colour, material, size, and construction. Sleek black designs, like our classic square Audrey handbag, are forgiving due to their dark patina, making them ideal for daily use. Regular soft brushing and occasional cleaning with a damp cloth will maintain their appearance. Lighter leather tones, such as the beige interpretations of the Divine and Audrey, require more frequent cleaning to preserve their pristine finish.
 
For conditioning your smooth leather accessories, begin by gently brushing them with a soft bristle brush to remove any dust or debris. Next, use a cotton or microfibre cloth to wipe the surface clean. Then, nourish the surface with a mild leather conditioner, testing it on a hidden spot first.

 

Common Problems

 
While stains, scratches, or the occasional encounter with light water damage are inevitable, they are also manageable with the right care. To address deep scratches on your leather handbag, gently clean the affected area with a damp cloth, ensuring it dries thoroughly. Then, buff the scratch with a soft, dry cloth and delicately apply thin layers of matching colour balm to restore its flawless appearance.
 
When encountering wet leather, prompt action is key: swiftly dab away any liquid from the outside and inside of your handbag, then leave it to air dry naturally. Avoid wiping, as this may push the liquid deeper into the material.
 

Care and Repair

 
Should you encounter any issues or require assistance beyond routine care, we recommend seeking professional help for repairs or deep cleaning. At Malone Souliers, we pride ourselves on customer service and are always more than happy to offer support and advice on any of our products
