REVIEWS

I’ve been eyeing on Artois for some time and comes to a point I’ve assured myself that this bag is truly the one. Perfectly structured, light-weighted, spacious and zip secured. A bag is not just a bag; at least not for me personally.

Few months of using Artois, I’m pleased to know that I indeed made the right choice. Everything fits easily inside. So versatile, so stylish. The interior lining and exterior canvas are definitely great, the straps are solid, the paint is crisp and bright as well.

Some of you may have concerns of constant use of the bag on daily basis however well-assured that prestigious brand like Goyard maintain a high standard of the durability of their bag. Scuffs along each corner, cracking straps, and some fades here and there are unavoidable but I’ve done few researches and feel relieved knowing those concerns are unlikely noticeable and even after years of using for some people, their Artois still look amazing.

CARE TIPS

For maintaining the look of the bag, you can use puffer bag to keep them in shape during storage or organizer bag to keep the inside of the bag clean and organized when using it out and about.

For cleaning purpose, please use microfiber cloth on the canvas and leather trim. In additional, might recommend you to use saddle soap for the leather corners however keep in mind not to use them on delicate ones as it could darken the leather colors.
