We all love are our branded wallets. They are exquisite pieces of craftsmanship and design and very expensive too. These fine wallets/ purses adorning our persons and cupboards need to be treated with care to be able to make them look new and last for years to come. If you can take adequate care, which is not very difficult, these fine investments of yours will give you immense satisfaction.
Most branded wallets are made from leather which is an animal hide. This is tanned and treated to make it flexible and long-lasting. The leather color is usually aniline- dyed, because it retains the natural grain (full grain) while saturating the leather- skin evenly.
If you are using a branded leather wallet like the LV wallets with a compartment for ID the general cleaning and maintenance guideline is to first remove any accumulated dirt using a reputed/ or recommended leather cleaner. The branded wallet will usually have some hardware in the form of metallic initials engraved on it. These need to be wiped clean with a soft cloth.
One can also condition the wallet with a leather conditioner to prevent excessive drying, flaking, and wrinkling. Dab a soft cotton cloth with the conditioner and gently wipe it all over the bag and air-dry it for some time. You could also weather-proof your wallet with a spray protectant to prevent the effects of bad weather reflecting on your wallets and keeping the contents inside clean and dry.
If you tend to use your wallet quite often, it is prudent to wipe it every alternate day using a soft dry cloth, because it is usually kept fitted inside a tight pocket and the humidity may wear the leather down. These simple maintenance tips may not look as exclusive and important; they may look very simple, but they can go a long way in helping you preserve the beautiful looks and newness of your branded wallet or purse.
