It must take a LOT of care. I just saw a rose Kooba at NM yesterday and there was a black smudge on the flap! It hadn't even been purchased yet! It was a beautiful color and luxurious looking but was damaged out of the gate. I have to imagine it is hard to clean or the sa would have fixed it already.......too bad....
I spray all of my Koobas with Wilson leather protectant. There are many good brands out there and they give your leather some protection against water and dirt.
I spray the entire bag once then repeat on the bottom and the handles. Makes sure you spray abit on the top edge inside of the bag too to deal with fingerprint dirt.
I have had zero problems with waterspots and yes, I do take my Koobas out in the rain (but hide them abit under my jacket).
Good luck, that is a great bag you have chosen.
i wanted to ask about the wilsons stuff,,, I have always been way too scared to spray my bags cause im too scared that it will stain my bag, or damage something ,,, OR wont work and then my bag will get damaged but if it really doesnt do ANYTHING to any leather like leave any marks then id love to spray all my bags with it just to be safe
SOOO my Q is 1) would you use it on any leather bag?
Yep, that's the stuff but mine is an aerosol. And I sprayed it on my Maria Terraine which is light colored. Now don't fret because AT FIRST it makes it look alittle wet (as it should). It will NOT stay that color. After an hour or so it is back to normal, but now with a thin layer of protectant.
And spray it outside or in the garage as it is abit smelly.
There is also a good protectant made by AppleGuard. There are threads here about that product and I have some of it too, just haven't needed it. I am about to the end of my can of Wilson and will try the Apple then.
