As one of the largest cities in the states, with one of the most diverse populations, it’s only natural that Chicago would put its own twist on well-known foods. One of the most famous (or infamous) foods of Chicago is the Chicago Deep-Dish Pizza. If you’re not careful, your designer bag might run foul of the melted cheese falling off your next slice.
However, there are plenty of professionals in Chicago that know how to take care of your favorite bag. Check out the list below for a few of our top repair shop picks.

Tips For Extending Your Bag’s Life In Chicago
Chicago is a harsh place when it comes to weather. From freezing winters to brutal summers. And our poor bags! Special attention must be taken if you want to get the most out of your bag.
1. Check the weather
It’s a great idea of quickly swipe over to your weather app or do a quick weather search before you go out. You probably don’t want to take your best bag out during a blizzard 🙂 . Maybe your best backpack though!
2. Don’t leave your bag in your car
Cars might be the worse place for your handbag. They can get stolen, and they can also get destroyed by sunlight and high internal car temperatures. If you have to keep your bag in your car, then it’s probably best that you put it in your trunk.
3. Dinner and drinks..
Most of us love showing off our best bags when we’re out on the town. Buuuut…it might be a good idea to cycle through our other less expensive bags once in a while. Food and drinks LOVE to find their way onto our best materials 🙁 .
