Leather bags are more expensive than fabric bags or leatherette. They are more respectable, more prestigious and look rich. But… for now, their appearance remains unchanged. No one is insured against cutting the top material of the accessory, but abrasions, discoloration, tarnishing and dirt can be avoided. You need proper and timely care for your leather bag.
The methods of cleaning and care depend on the color of the bag and the type of material. Factory solutions and substances are available to help keep the surface of the material light or dark, shiny or matte. However, even among home remedies you can find “helpers”.
