My mono koala wallet is peeling along the sides and has been for awhile. The first time this happened, about a few months after purchasing, I brought it to LV and they gave me a new one, saying the piece was "defective". A few months later the new one began doing the same thing - the leather-like lining along the sides of the canvas on the wallet, the "glaze" that holds the pieces together peels off like plastic and the threading shows. This also happened to my fiance's wallet awhile back (damier), and after having it re-glazed and the same thing happening again (and waiting like 3 months to get it back), we just decided this happens with LV wallets and we'll most likely not be buying another... but for now, I love my koala - and so I tried re-glazing the sides by myself with Mod Podge, a waterbase sealer/glue/finish that I use on my ballerina flat bottoms when they tear - and things like that. Now let's not all gawk or throw stones . I've noticed this is particular to the LV crowd...LV owners don't self repair their items - and they have near panic attacks when people talk about this... I'm prepared for the typical "oh no don't do that! You'll ruin the LV warranty!!!" or "you'll hurt it's resale value!!". What's crazy to me is that, I typically frequent the Balenciaga forum, and women on there are constantly DIY repairing their bags - glueing tassels, cutting tassles, dying their bags, sending their bags to be dyed - LV girls are so anal about this warranty myth, it's nutty ! So please - no comments like this This is strictly for advice on fixing your items. Don't be shy! Come out and share your experiences. The Mod Podge peels too eventually, by the way, so I'm looking to see if I can try something else. I've heard of Bal girls using some sort of flexible craft glue to mend their split tassels... thinking of trying it ... but open to other advice . The problem with the koala wallet is the way it folds - the creasing of the wallet causes the lining to crack - it's inevitable for this design - and the same happens with Mod Podge because it isn't flexible. :s Let's discuss!
