    Question White bags and how to take care of them?

    Hi! I'm Contemplating about getting a white leather bag myself but I'm paranoid about the whiteness. I worry about it getting dirty easily or worse of all, white turning into an off-white/yellowish/grayish Color. Did that happen to your bags? How are your white bags holding up? Thanks

    A good leather cleaner will keep your whites extra white. Or simply just a rag and warm water. I've never had any issues with mine..

    I do not have any white handbags, but a couple of ivory ones. My main problem has not been dirt, but color transfer by rubbing. My Rebecca Minkoff foldover squeeze has ostrich leather on one side in cream color and i have denim transfer on it
    Like Jenn says, if you take good care of it, it should be fine, but almost everyone i have seen with white bags have dirt on them.

    Uhg, exactly! Color transfer is pretty common for lighter color bags

    Agree with! A good leather cleaner works great! Just be sure to check which types of leathers it is okay to use on.

    I usually bring a white cloth that I wrap the bag in when i sit down in restaurants. at home I just keep it in the box/dust bag I bought it in.
