We get this question all the time and the answer is YES.
Leather is just like your skin. Too much exposure to direct sunlight will dry out and damage leather. It can cause the bag to discolor and fade. It is important to keep your designer handbag out of direct sunlight when ever possible. When storing your bag, it is best to keep it away from sunlight to protect it from damage. We suggest storing it in a in a cloth dust cover off the floor in closet.
You can help protect you handbag from day to day damage by using a leather moisturizer. We recommend Arrow Leathercare’s Fine Leather Lotion. It will clean, polish and protect your leather handbag.
