I had an old "it" bag and wallet in white and it started yellowing loooooong time ago. I think over time, it's going to happen. Both yellowing and lifting. I've seen it on lots of bags.

Someone else may have a different experience or solution but I didn't find anything that would help with the yellowing. 😔

I have had yellowing on older Grafica handbags & accessories with white or light backgrounds too. :nogood: Supposedly the newer patterns have been processed differently so that it doesn't happen. I haven't purchased any so don't know whether or not this is true.

The yellowing that upset me the most was on my Scottie wristlet. I stored the wristlet out of the light and fully protected. When I checked on it a while ago, it was completely yellowed where it should be white! :cry:

There is no "fix" that I know of for this....except to trade the item in on something else. I won't be parting with my Scottie wristlet but can no longer use it. So sad....
