The first few days of owning a new bag are the honeymoon phase: we keep the straps in check, try to shield it from the rain, and inspect every inch for unwanted stains. But once it’s broken in—and the cloth has become used to holding our things—we forget about it.
The clutter builds up; the material turns grimy.
But when your trusty bag is both overused and unappreciated, it’s more likely to give out. And since bags tend to be extensions of our personalities and daily activities, it makes sense that they deserve the same care that we give to ourselves. So, whatever your daily routine demands, take care of your bag to help it last a lifetime. Here are eight different materials that your bag might be made of and all the ways to help you keep them clean.
While your fashion choices can say a lot about your personality or social status, the care you take care with them can tell a different story. Make your things last—after all, every item you purchase is an investment to both your wardrobe and the environment.
