A Better & Longer Lasting Finish
Most handbags use the cheap way for a factory to finish the handle edges. It’s called edge paint. Just cut the handle strap straight and paint the edges with soft plastic and you’re done.
The problem is that leather is much more durable than edge paint. When a bag starts wearing prematurely, the edge paint is usually the first to give. It cracks, peels, fades or stains, and generally looks like a cheap way to make a finished leather handle.
We don’t use edge paint on load bearing surfaces, ever. You’ll never have to worry about your Lily Jade handles giving you trouble.
