Is it true that canvas can "crack" when it freezes?

  1. I am planning to buy a damier bag for winter because it seems so durable but it is cold here sometimes in winter
  2. The canvas will not break. I've carried my Damier and Monogram Canvas bags throughout the winter during -30 degree Celsius weather and they were fine.
  3. Ditto, if Canadian weather doesn't destroy an Vuitton, you can probably safely carry it in most other climates. :graucho:
  4. if i can make it through a winter in Boston with those wreched canadian cold fronts and come through safely I am sure you will be fine
  5. I've never had problems with mine in Canada! Some of my LV's are 4 years old, and the major sign of wear has been the patina and sometimes this gold finish on the hardware chipping off... but the canvas stays perfect!
  6. Tiny cracks come with wear and tear I think. It takes a long time for it to happen I think.
  7. I've never heard of that before.
  8. a LOT of use, or a lonnnnnng time of non use will cause it to crack. reason being: it's a natural material. like [real] leather, a lot of use and no care (keeping it safe, moisturized, etc) it will crack, and a long time of non use (suffocated from air and moisture) it will crack as well.. canvas (and well anything else also) will react the same. but with regular use, it should be fine.
  9. That's good to know! I thought that I'd have to put away my mono bags for the winter because the freezing cold would turn the canvas rigid and eventually cause it to crack.
    I'll be carrying my mono bags this winter! :flowers:
