We all love our Miche Purses, that’s why it is essential to store them correctly to avoid accidents. If you follow these simple steps, your Miche Collection will stay flawless for years to come.
And the best thing is that is not complicated at all, literally, it does not add time to the storing process, just makes sure you are doing it properly.
• Keep them in a cool, dry area and stack them flat.
• Shells should be stored vertically with studs never coming into contact with the “good side” of the shell.
• You do NOT want the shells to be magnetized to each other; this could cause fabric dimpling on the exterior of the shell.
• You will want to alternate the direction of the metal feet when stacking your shells to avoid any indentations on the adjacent shell. The metal feet on one shell should touch the inside of the adjacent shell.
• To take extra care, place a piece of tissue (clean soft cloth diapers or a piece of tissue paper) between each shell to guarantee that there is no color transfer from shells to shell, which is when a darker shell marks on a lighter shell. Sometimes it is impossible to avoid “color transfer” when using certain shells, as your purse will hit & bump objects or rub against your clothing (be cautious with jeans/jackets rubbing against lighter shells).
• When storing your new shells on a shelf or in the closet organizer, store them like a book, so the sides don’t sag over.
• Using the Miche Bag closet organizer will also help with keeping your shells in their best condition. The Miche Bag Closet Organizer will hold 13 shells: 6 on one side, 7 on the other.
• Using the Closet Organizer, be sure to wrap lighter color shells with tissue paper so there is no color transfer from the black material used for Miche’s Closet Organizer.
• Never fold a Miche shell into 3’s like a clutch bag it could stretch the fabric. Fold only once like it was in the original packaging (with Miche plate logo and feet showing, and the other end of shell folded under). Trifold them is a mistake as this will cause the material to ripple and stretch and will create a gap at the bottom edge of the base.
