#1 What is the difference between See by Chloé and Chloé?

Launched in 2001 by Pheobe Philo, See By Chloé is the sister brand to the iconic French design house. See by Chloé provides more options for a younger age group with everyday styles while keeping an ultra-feminine aesthetic. Predominantly made in Italy the See by Chloé bags are high-quality luxury bags that has a slightly bohemian edge. 

#2 How to clean See By Chloé bags?

See By Chloé leather goods will become even more beautiful with age, provided the following key instructions are observed:

  • Do not overload your bag, if you carry too much weight or have to struggle to shut the fastening it will damage the handles, straps and fastenings
  • Avoid exposing your leather goods to humidity and direct sources of heat (radiators, sun), so make sure you store it in the dust bag provided 
  • Prevent any contact with alcohol (perfume, solvent) and greasy substances (make-up)
  • Store your bag standing up in its felt pouch, filled with silk paper so that it retains its shape
  • Avoid contact with rough or abrasive materials
  • Prevent rough exposure to metallic parts as the coating may chip, and clean with a soft dry cloth
  • Waterproof your leather good and maintain it with a professional leather conditioner regularly
  • Take specific care of white or light-coloured bags to avoid stains, as it is difficult to clean them

To clean your leather goods, wipe with a clean, non-abrasive and soft dry cloth. In case of contact with water, do not rub the leather: use a clean dry cloth and apply a gentle tapping motion to absorb the liquid. If stains occur, dab the area with a damp soft cloth and leave it to air dry. Apply a clear leather cream using gentle circling motions.
