How to Care for Louis Vuitton bags?

by 佳央理武田 04 Apr 2023



Louis Vuitton bags are made from a combination of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and vachetta leather. Vachetta leather is a soft natural cowshide leather used for the trimmings, zip tag, straps and handles.PVC is cotton canvas coated with PVC – a durable plastic coated material used for the external body of the bag.
how do you take care of them?

1.For cleaning, use a soft, damp cloth with slightly soapy water, avoiding the printed portions. Home remedies such as mink oil, alcohol-based solutions such as hand sanitizers, leather lotions, cleaners, or chemicals, should not be used on any canvas products.
2.Apply a silicon-free waterproofer is a good choice,This will provide a barrier to stains absorbing into the leather and assist with cleaning the vachetta.The same goes for Damier Azur, Damier Ebene, Damier Graphite, Multicolor, Monogram Eclipse canvas. Thus, it doesn't make sense to apply chemicals created for soft leather treatment.
3.Please wrap it in a dust bag.Also try to stuff desiccated paper inside.In this way, not only it can prevent the deformation , but also prevent moisture, mold and other problems.
4.Use a conditioner on the canvas and leather every 6 – 12 months depending on how often you use your LV canvas bag.
5.Do not expose the bag to direct sunlight when storing away or when in-use as much as possible.Also avoid to use bag on rainy days.
6. With some vintage Louis Vuitton bags the inside will be peeling. Not only the purse looks bad with these insides, the lining is also not suitable for use as it's sticky.


For most people a Louis Vuitton bag is a significant investment and with some care and cleaning you can extend its life for years.
