How to organize items in a woven handbag:

For 2024 woven handbags that have mesh openings, it can be a bit challenging to store small items like lipsticks and keys. However, you can use an accessory like the Fascinee inner bag. It covers the mesh openings and provides additional compartments for organizing small items, making the handbag more practical. The inner bag is available in various colors, so you can choose one that matches your handbag.

Maintenance tips for woven handbags:

  1. Loewe Care Guide: "Avoid excessive contact with water, oils, perfumes, or cosmetics."

By using the Fascinee inner bag, you can prevent direct contact between the handbag and the items inside. Even if there is a spill of makeup or sunscreen, you don't need to worry about it damaging the handbag. If the handbag gets wet, gently pat dry with a soft cloth.

  1. Loewe Care Guide: "Avoid prolonged exposure to strong light and heat sources."

Woven handbags should be protected from prolonged exposure to sunlight and heat, as it can cause oxidation and fading. When not in use or during the offseason, store the handbag in a dry place.

  1. Cleaning dust and stains in crevices:

When cleaning, avoid directly using water. Instead, use a soft toothbrush dampened with a little water to gently brush away stains. After cleaning, remember to blot away any excess moisture and allow the handbag to dry in a cool place.
