When shopping for a fashion accessory that is long lasting and can be used in a variety of circumstances, consider a few criteria in your bags leather. Available in so many distinct styles, colors, and options, you will never go wrong carrying one. Be sure to protect your investment through proper care and you will get years of enjoyment out of it.
Take proper care of your bag by applying a good conditioner designed specifically for this type of material. Whatever you do, do not attempt to wash. Just use a clean towel and wipe away any dirt that accumulates. Be sure to use the conditioning oil at least once a month to maintain a soft feel and clean appearance. Products designed for preventative care can be found at your original place of purchase and most shoe or luggage stores.
Avoid getting it wet. If you do, wipe it as soon as possible with a towel and set it out to dry in the air. Try not to set it down on any surface that has moisture. Keeping up with your conditioning will also ensure it readily repels water. Remember, you will never want to set it on water or wash it.
If you need to put it away in storage, or are not going to use it for several weeks, place it in a cloth pouch or other fabric container. This will help protect it from moisture, dust, and other elements. If you can give the material a rest between uses, just like with your other clothing accessories, you will extend its life even further.
Whether a purse, briefcase, luggage, or other item, you will find distinct hides and finishing. Depending on how bold or subtle you wish to be, pick one you are most comfortable with and consider the value gained with quality. If you are not clear what material is used in yours, be sure to ask the store so you are confident you are getting the best for your money.
Knowing the difference between finishes will give a good start when shopping. From patent to full-grain, any finish will be an excellent choice as long as you know how it is done and why. When you touch it, you should be able to tell what animal it came from. Having this knowledge will allow you to appreciate your investment and give you more to talk about when others ask about it.
Another major factor is the animal used. Cowhide makes up the largest percentage in the market. There are also products made from goats, sheep, and pigs. Each of these offers its own unique variation on finish, texture, and durability. However, quality products can be made from each using a variety of processes.
One thing you can be sure of when you select a bags leather is that you are getting a product made to stand up for a lifetime.
