How To Care For Your Acne Totes
To prolong the life of your Acne Studios bag, it should be stored properly when not in use. It’s recommended that you store your piece in a dust bag. Keep it in a dry place, out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources. Before storing, you can pad the inner with tissue to help it keep its shape.
Leather styles can be spot cleaned at home using a damp cloth. You shouldn’t use harsh cleaning products or detergents on your bag as this can damage the material. For a deep clean, try a leather cleaner from a specialist shop. Follow the instructions on your chosen formula and leave your bag to air dry naturally. The interior of your Acne Studios tote can be cleaned using a damp cloth too.
Suede styles can be refreshed using a suede brush. These have soft bristles that won’t compromise the delicate fabric. Work gently at affected patches and don’t use liquids.
To keep your bag looking its best, you can treat the leather. Initially, you can use a protector spray. This forms a barrier over your bag, stopping stains from taking to the fabric and helping to keep it weatherproof.
Leather can naturally become thin and tarnished over time. If this happens you can use a restorer to renew tired patches. Restorer creams come in a choice of colors, so you can find one to match your bag. Remember to do a patch test on a hidden part of your bag before treating your piece thoroughly.
