How to take care of your Petty Things bag

Petty Things joins the Slow fashion, in the belief of keeping our accessories alive for a long time, away from the use and throw in the next season. That is why we want to share with you how to take care of Petty Things handbags and give them a long life.

If there is anything that stands out above all in Petty Things are the materials we use. These materials can be vintage fabrics, our treasures as we like to call them because of their historical value and importance, or leather – in the latest collections  vegetable leathers.

PETTY THINGS IS SLOW FASHION

If you have purchased any of the Petty Things accessories, you may have chosen a model with vintage fabric that you will want to keep at its best! (#theimportanceofpettythings). And how do we take care of these little treasures? Well here are some tips, whether its made of leather or leather&vintage fabric.

Vintage fabrics for Petty Things clutches and purses

Accessories with vintage barkcloth

The barkcloth (type of vintage fabric) may have some stain, imperfections or small traces of time. Of use, it may be losing rigidity but you can pass over with an iron (in soft heat) and it will return to its initial rigidity.

If the selected model also has a part of leather, it can be treated with a specific product to nourish it.

Models with barkcloth: Nina, Debbie, Doris, Marlen, Chloe, Purses.
