However your ethics may affect your sartorial decisions, when it comes down to buying a handbag here at The Restory we feel we should be able to invest in accessories as part of the slow fashion movement. The important thing is to invest in what is right for you, and ultimately to look after it properly to ensure the longevity of the item whether for your own use or to resell.

Whilst you’re not using your bag, stuff it to ensure the shape remains the way it was intended and to avoid creases in the leather.

 

Don’t overfill your bags, as tempting as it may be.

 

This can cause damage to the handles as weaken and are overstretched.

 

Try to keep makeup and pens in separate bags to avoid any spillages onto the lining as this can be expensive to rectify.

"Don’t overfill your bags, as tempting as it may be."

 

 

 

 

 

 

Use an appropriate leather cream or equivalent every few months to keep the material moisturised and nourished.

 

If you get caught in the rain unprepared, let your bag dry naturally and avoid sitting it on the radiator. It may speed the process but will only lead to the material cracking and further damage to the bag.

We encourage you to send your items in before they get too worse for wear to avoid substantial work.

 

If your bag is looking tired we can provide a clean and moisturise the leather to protect it, this will minimise scratches and marks.

 

If the edging on the handles or corners is starting to crack, wear or stretch we can sand and replace it. If left too long it’s likely the handles will become damaged beyond repair and it’s a much bigger job to remove, recreate and replace these.
