Top Tips On Organizing Your Purses & Bags

There are so many ways to organize your bags, whether it’s by color, style​,​ or size. 

By color. If you love coordinating your bags to your outfit by their hue, having your bags in color coordination makes for easy access. You can go from light to dark bags, or you can go for the Home Edit’s iconic look with a rainbow effect of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo​,​ and violet.

By size. Some days you need your oversized carryall, other days a mini crossbody will do. Organize your bags by their size, from smallest to largest.

By style. Bucket bags? Wristlets? You have all kinds of purses! Group your bags by their style and you’ll always find the kind you’re looking for right at your fingertips. 

How you store your purses will help keep them organized and in tip-top condition. Make sure to store your Brahmin collection of genuine leather handbags in a dry and cool space and out of the sun to protect the leather. In addition, Brahmin provides each of its handbags with a dust bag for safe storage. Keeping your handbags inside of one also helps protect them from sun exposure, as well as excess moisture and dust, so you can enjoy your Brahmin handbags for years to come.
