One of the things I love about blogging is meeting new people, and eventually having new friends. ?
I’m so happy to have met LA during the NIVEA and Mango’s Glam Express Event. One Wednesday evening, she invited me to her super nice abode for a private bag spa session.
Pardon me for being so late (not to mention, stressed) then. ? Nonetheless, I managed to drop by and catch up on the most important part of the sesh — the presentation and the demo, of course! ?
To give you an inkling, Purse Prime is a brainchild of K-wey Landayan and LA Ferriols, whose passion is into taking good care of designer handbags in the hopes of preserving them into their pristine condition.
Started recently in May 2011, Purse Prime is your one-stop-shop bag care specialist in the Philippines, and an official distributor of Apple Brand Products. They carry Esquire (for patent and vinyl) and Meltonian (specially made for distressed leather material like that of Balenciaga) in addition.
[In keeping with this value] Purse Prime places an even stronger emphasis on the importance of prevention since it is as important to take care of your bags as it is to fix or mend it when it gets broken.
It’s a shame that I’m not really fond of collecting (and taking care of) bags, particularly designer bags, ‘coz it’s way too much expensive for an on-budget lass like me. The most expensive bag that I bought would be a Marc by Marc Jacobs Nylon Tote, which I normally use as a weekender bag (due to its ginormous size). I have some hand-me-downs to boot, mostly purses, from Coach and LV. That night, I decided to bring my humble Burberry makeup pouch that doubles as a tiny clutch bag.
The introductory part was halfway done when I arrived. Nevertheless, I was lucky to catch up on Meya, who’s also into bag care business.
Moving along, Kwey and LA discussed mainly the bag care essentials depending on the brand and material, along with the diverse range of products they carry. LA even gave us a quick demonstration on Meya’s 15-year-old Dooney & Bourke handbag.
Bags are like our own skin. Cleaning should be as gentle as if we’re cleansing our own face. ?
Each of us brought home something from Purse Prime to try. I’ll be making a separate post about it soon!
I had so much fun chattering with the ladies. Thank you so much LA and Kwey for the cordial invitation. Now, I don’t need to worry should I splurge on a designer bag soon! ?
