Yesterday I brought out my Sac Rayures PM for the very first time. And as usual, after I got back home, I would unpacked my bag and do a little inspection (for dirts..well who knows..) I then noticed something sticky when my fingers touched the top trimmings. I looked at it and saw glue scum..thought it must be normal as it's just at the "cut-joined" part of the leather trimmings (though I know the glue scum was not there before). So I just cleaned it off with a white cloth. But then as I inspect the bag further, I realised most parts of the tinted cowhide tanned leather - the trimmings all around - the strap - and even the tag ...are kinda sticky! There's no glue scum but there's just a sticky feeling when you touched them. And enough to say that after touching them and not washed my hands after that, I could still feel the stickiness on my finger tips. Yeah, it was a hot sunny day yesterday when I brought the bag out. But I was only exposed to the sun on the way to the LV store (almost 5pm). The rest of the time I was indoor - first trip to the LV store, where after that I walk in the mall shade/walkway to a restaurant for dinner. I read the care booklet this morning and there's a part where it stated " Avoid exposure to sunlight". But that was on the general care. Not specifically mentioned on the tinted cowhide tanned leather column. I called the LV store today to ask if this is normal. The SA mentioned that it could be the tinted, tanning process on the leather reacting with the humidity & sun - though he still finds it strange. He will make an enquiry about it for me and give me a call early coming week. Could Sac Rayures owners (PM or GM) let me know if they have experience similar experience with their bag? Thank you.
