Our maintenance tips for better longevity of your leather travel bag!

Leather is a noble and resistant material, used to make luxury leather goods such as travel bags. To maintain the quality and extend the life of your leather travel bag, you must adopt good maintenance practices. Discover without further delay our valuable advice to help you preserve the shine and robustness of your bag.

How to store and protect your leather travel bag?

How you store your bag can significantly influence its longevity. It is recommended to empty the bag after use to prevent it from deforming under the weight of its contents. To maintain its shape, fill it lightly with acid-free tissue paper. If you no longer have the original dust bag, a white cotton pillowcase may do the trick. Avoid colored fabrics that could transfer colors to the leather of your leather travel bag. Finally, make sure to store your bag in a cool place, away from direct sunlight and artificial heat sources.

Clean and maintain your men's leather bag

To maintain the appearance of your leather travel bag, wipe it regularly with a soft cloth after each use. This simple action helps preserve the appearance of the leather. If your bag is exposed to moisture, wipe it immediately with a dry cloth and allow it to dry naturally. Avoid using a hairdryer or placing it directly in the sun, as this may damage the material and discolor the leather.


My leather bag has a stain: what should I do?

If there are stains on your suit travel bag, it is imperative to remove them immediately to prevent them from becoming embedded. For grease stains, for example, avoid water and blot the stain with a dry cloth. For ink stains, a cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol can be effective, but test on an inconspicuous area first. If your bag requires more thorough cleaning, consider taking it to a professional dry cleaner experienced in leather care.

Use a leather conditioner for your travel bag

Use a leather conditioner every 3 to 6 months, depending on the use of your bag and the environment you live in. Conditioner helps restore the leather's natural oils, keeping it supple and preventing cracking. Make sure the bag is clean before applying conditioner and use the product sparingly to prevent the leather from becoming too oily or greasy.

Make a homemade leather conditioner

To make a homemade leather conditioner, start by mixing one part white vinegar with two parts olive oil or coconut oil. Apply this mixture to the leather using a soft cloth, rubbing in small circular movements. Allow the conditioner to soak in for about an hour before buffing the leather with another clean, dry cloth to remove any excess oil. This natural method hydrates the leather and helps preserve its shine and suppleness.

Caring for your leather travel bag isn't just about keeping it looking good. It’s also a way to enhance your investment by making it last longer. Do you have any other leather care tips you'd like to share?
