How to Care for your Handbag

Our handbags are hand-woven with 100% abaca fiber and finished with buttery soft 100% napa leather handles. Because of the durability and strength of the materials, caring for your handbag is quite easy with a few quick tips. 

How to reshape me

While we take a great deal of care when packing each handbag for shipment, some may arrive slightly out of shape. This is an easy fix with a few simple steps:

1. Lightly spray the handbag with water in a spray bottle and reshape it gently to soften the fibers. Do not spray water on leather handles.

2. To revive the handbags shape, stuff with a stiff, kraft like paper or a towel and let the handbag sit for a couple of hours.

Because the Le Panier MoÏses handbag reshapes so beautifully it makes for an ideal bag to travel with. You can pack the bag flat in your suitcase or carry on and easily bring it back to life by following these quick tips.

Now if only we could reshape our bodies as easily :)

Cleaning your handbag

To remove dirt or dust from your handbag, we recommend opening the zipper and carefully shaking the bag upside down to remove any debris.

Once you have removed any debris from the bag, dampen a white cloth in soapy water and wipe your handbag in the direction of the straw bag’s weave; don’t try to wipe against the grain of the straw, you might damage the abaca fibers. Then dab dry with a white towel. Don't use colored paper or newspaper since ink can transfer.

Since our handbag has 100% Napa leather handles, they should never be placed in a washer or dryer or allowed to soak in water as this could damage the leather. Cleaning by hand is the best way to care for your bag.

Allow the bag to air dry in a cool place away from direct sunlight or heat.

Repeat as necessary!

How to store your handbag

To help keep your handbag like new, we recommend stuffing the handbag with tissue paper to help keep its shape and either storing upright or flat in an old pillowcase or cotton bag to prevent dust from accumulating during off-season storage. Never store the handbag in a plastic bag, as this can encourage mold and mildew. Make sure that you store your Le Panier MoÏses handbag far from direct heat, and avoid areas with too much humidity.
