Many of our customers will have noticed that when they buy a bag or handbag from The Real Handbag Shop website, the item comes packed in a Real Handbag Shop Dust Cover. As well as being very handy to store bags and handbags, they are also reassuringly environmentally friendly.
The Real Handbag Shop is a company which actually does care about the environment. We endeavour to do our bit for the planet wherever possible and if we are taking a step in the right direction in packing your order with less plastic and more eco-friendly materials, then we will happily do so, even if it costs just that little bit more. Any cellophane we use is a cellulose product made from the farming of trees specifically grown for the purpose. Even our cardboard packing boxes are 100% recyclable and contain some recycled content.
The Real Handbag Shop Dust Covers are made from 100% recyclable NWPP –non woven polypropylene. These dust covers are manufactured in China, in an ethical factory, selected specifically for its production methods and regularly inspected. The factory is a co-operative and doesn’t employ anyone under age 16. In order to be as environmental as possible, the dust covers are shipped to the UK.
The Real Handbag Shop Dust Covers come in one size and are large enough to fit most bags and handbags including sizes up to A4 Messenger Bags. When you need to store a precious bag or handbag which is not currently in use, simply place inside the dust cover and pull the drawstring to close. It is recommended that you place the stored bag or handbag upright on a shelf in your wardrobe and stuffed with acid-free paper to keep its shape. This then keeps the dust, bugs and sunlight away whilst allowing the handbag to ‘breathe’; essential to prolong the life of leather products which can sweat and deteriorate if kept in plastic bags.
To get your free The Real Handbag Shop Dust Cover, simply order a bag or handbag from the website realhandbagshop.co.uk. The Real Handbag Shop Dust Covers are not available for general sale and are not available from any other website or online outlet.
