1. Clean Regularly:
    • Wipe the tote with a soft, damp cloth after each use.
    • Use a mild leather cleaner for deeper cleaning; avoid harsh chemicals.
  2. Protect from Elements:
    • Keep the tote away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures.
    • Prolonged exposure can cause fading and damage to the leather.
  3. Hydrate the Leather:
    • Apply a leather conditioner every few months to maintain suppleness.
    • Use a small amount and ensure even application; let it absorb.
  4. Storage Tips:
    • Store the tote in a cool, dry place when not in use.
    • Maintain its shape by stuffing it with tissue or cloth.
  5. Handle with Care:
    • Be cautious of sharp objects to prevent scratches.
    • Avoid overloading the tote; leather can stretch over time.
  6. Embrace Aging:
    • Allow the natural patina to develop; it adds character.
    • Your tote’s appearance will evolve, creating a unique and personalized look.

Remember, a little care ensures your high-quality leather wine tote remains a stylish and durable accessory.
