Victoria Handmade® Basket Bags are protected against the water, being purses for whole year without limitations in the Autumn / Winter Season. The final protection that we have in our bags make them waterproof, being as resistant as any purse of any other material - Not damaging anything that might be inside the bag.


Beeswax is a natural product that helps in the maintenance and preservation of your Victoria Handmade® bag!

- Use beeswax when you feel that your bag is with a ruff look

- To clean & preserve the color and brightness of the bag, use a cloth with beeswax and go through all the piece, including leather and hardware accessories.

- For a long term, avoid storing your piece in humid and poorly ventilated spaces - store it in its non woven bag (goes as offer when you purchase a Victoria Handmade®) in a place that circulates air (eg. hanging on a hanger, open cupboards - never closed -, etc.)

Note: When storing your Victoria Handmade® for a while, first pass a good amount of beeswax over the entire piece before storing it - especially in the Acessórios de hardware, to protect your basketbag from moisture.


- To keep the natural beauty of your bag much longer, apply beeswax between 1 to 2 times a month - depending on its regular use.

- To clean moisture or dirt, make the above recommendations.
