Storing Chanel in the correct way can keep your bags in tip top shape. This tutorial goes over the best way to store your Chanel. It's particularly great for keeping the quilting on lambskin Chanel bags puffy.
We'll start with a quick tutorial on how to store the iconic Chanel 2.55 double flap.
1. Pull the chain strap in.
2. Put some filling inside the bag along with the shoulder strap. You can use old clothing that isn't being used anymore, tissue paper or any fabric that does not have color rub off.
3. Place felt in between the flaps.
4. Place felt in between the bag and the remaining chain. This will prevent the chain from indenting soft lambskin.
Finally, be sure to store your bag standing upright. This will play the biggest influence in your bag retaining its shape.
Store the bag in a dustbag if you wish. Otherwise, keep the bag out of direct sunlight while it is in storage.
If your bag already has quilting that has flattened or if your bag is in caviar leather, the felt in between the shoulder strap and bag will not be necessary.
Here are some other examples using other Chanel bags.
Hope you all found this quick tutorial easy and fun. For more information, read about dustbags and how to make your own. Please feel free to ask any storage questions down below. :)
