Waterproofing LV

  1. Hello!
    I just bought my very first Louis Vuitton (a monogram canvas pochette & coin puse) and i am not sure if i have to waterproof it or anything? Does anyone know what i should do?
    And also i want the Patina. How long does it usually take?
     
  2. Some use Applegarde, some use Shining Monkey...

    Patina depends on the use, exposure to light/sun/etc...if you want it to speed up, I recommend "tanning" it. I did it to my Popincourt Haut, by putting it out in the sun, rotating the bag every 15 minutes.
     
  3. I read that it could take several months if you leave it on a windowsill (scroll to the bottom of this article):
