I recently won a teal Delia on eBay that is somewhat faded from her glory days. I had a call with Barb/LMB before bidding on the bag and she was delightfully informative on how we could approach dying the bag, which I believe I will need to do at some point. However when the bag came it actually had more color than seemed apparent in the pictures and I'm now exploring the benefits of some (less costly) TLC in the iterim to see what condition I can bring her back to.
I'm not exactly sure what kind of leather it is, and I'm not sure what conditioning product to use. Has anyone out there given their own teal Delia TLC and if so what did you use and what was the outcome? Would love to hear both good and bad so I know what not to use as well. Thanks!
It's definitely the leather that needs help. I would love to post pics but they always end up being "too big" to upload. Any help or suggestions on that front? I could also probably direct you to the ended eBay listing but those pics actually don't do justice to the bag. It looks more faded and tri-toned than in real life.
Here is a link to the ended listing. If the link doesn't work, you could just search Kooba Delia then click "completed listings" in results.
