6 Tips & Tricks: Transitioning Your Bags Season to Season
Keeping your bags looking fresh and staying up to date with the latest trends can be difficult. There are a few simple steps you can take to maintain the structure, cleanliness, and style of your bags season to season, while keeping up with the latest trends.
Tip 1: Scotchgard Your Bags
Our top tip for taking care of your canvas bags is to Scotchgard them prior to the first use. Just by taking the time to do this, you will help prevent staining and blemishes that can appear over time with regular use. Plus, if any stains do come up after a spill, you can easily spot treat the stain to keep your bag looking like new!
Tip 2: Stick to Neutral Tones
To ensure that your bags can be used during any season, it is best to choose neutral-colored bags. Colors like olive, tan, gray, and black are very versatile and can easily transition from the cooler to warmer months. One of our top sellers, the Advantage Bag, in natural, gray, olive, and black is a great year-round option.
Tip 3: Switch it Up with Detachable Straps
If your customers love a pop of color and switching up their look with the seasons, they will fall head over heels in love with our brand new, detachable straps and standard detachable straps! From stylish straps to fun florals, we have six detachable straps that can be swapped out whenever they wish. A decorative strap instantly elevates the look of a neutral bag and a fun floral pattern is a great tactic to transition your bag for the spring and summer seasons.
Tip 4: Maintain That Shape
Over time, the shape of your bag may start to appear less structured. This can occur due to daily use or improper storage of the bag. One way to help maintain the shape of your bag is to roll up towels and place them within your bag, especially if it is a larger tote, or simply stuff it with tissue paper. This will help to keep that gorgeous shape and structure when your bag is not being utilized and keep it looking brand new!
Tip 5: Use a Dust Bag
To prevent the build-up of dust and protect your bags from damage when they are not being used, we recommend utilizing a dust bag. You can easily purchase them online, fold them up, and pack them away when your bag is being used. Then, when you are ready to store, unfold the dust bag, and simply place your bag or purse within it for extra protection!
