Today, we want to talk about Louis Vuitton bags. We are often asked how to take care of them, especially the lightweight vachetta leather that the handles are made of.
Vachetta is a vegetable-tanned leather that develops a beautiful patina over time, but is also susceptible to stains when it comes into contact with water or hand sanitizer.
We recommend a light product like VEGETABLE TANNING LEATHER BALM - SAPHIR MÉDAILLE D'OR for moisturizing and protecting this leather. Products with higher oil content darken the vachetta, but the leather balm is designed specifically for such delicate leathers.
Don't forget to treat the canvas with our LOTION FOR COATED FABRIC SAPHIR MEDAILLE D'OR 😊 when you take care of your bag.
The canvas also needs to be cared for, otherwise it will become stiff and can crack over time:
- Use a soft, damp cloth to clean the canvas. - If the canvas is dirty, use a leather cleaner designed for canvas. - Apply the cleaner to a clean, soft cloth and rub gently. - Dry the canvas with a clean, dry cloth.
- Use a lotion for coated fabrics / Coated to moisturize and protect the canvas.
If you follow these tips, your Louis Vuitton bag will stay looking good for many years to come.
