handbag care tips & small goods
classic nylon: a damp cloth and mild soap should work to remove most dirt and stains simply by wiping. once the dirt has been lifted, be sure to wipe down the entire bag quickly in order to avoid getting water spots on the fabric. never immerse your fabric handbag in water since it will delaminate the inner lining causing it to pucker. leather trim can also erode when immersed in water.
fabric: each fabric used in the design of freeglory handbags is carefully selected for its color, texture, durability, and beauty. please treat these fabrics with care to extend the life of your bag. we recommend warm water and mild soap on a clean cloth for removing most common stains. please be certain to thoroughly test an inconspicuous area prior to actual stain removal to avoid uncontrollable variations in material reaction. evening bags should be treated with extra special care as delicate fabrics should only be cleaned by dry cleaning specialists. never immerse your fabric handbag in water since it will delaminate the inner lining causing it to pucker. leather trim can also erode when immersed in water.
straw: our fabric and straw handbags are considered seasonal and do tend to wear more quickly. please refer to the care tag enclosed to help you keep it in tip-top condition. for straw handbag storage we suggest stowing your handbag away from direct sunlight and heat, stuffed with tissue and stored in its dust bag when not in use. try to avoid crowding your handbag when it is in storage to help maintain its shape, and to prevent delicate straws from breaking.
leather care: the leather used in the design of freeglory handbags is specially chosen from the finest tanneries in italy and asia. most of our leathers have been treated and are water and scratch resistant. should your handbag become wet, wipe gently dry with a soft cloth. for regular cleaning, a damp cloth and mild leather cream may be applied.
what is saffiano leather? saffiano leather originated in one of italy's most famous tanneries and was originally made from the highest quality calf leather. it can be identified by its crosshatch print that is pressed into the wax that coats the leather.
handbag storage ideas for any bag owner, handbags are a prized possession. Storing them correctly is essential to keep them looking brand new and outfit ready. for large structured handbags, these are best stored on shelves or tucked into cubbies individually. for less structured bags hang them on hooks by the strap ensuring they are empty to avoid stretching from excess weight. with smaller clutches and pouches, these are best kept in your original freeglory box, each protected by their own freeglory dust bag.
