Does the vachetta leather darken if kept in dust bag?

  1. Megs and I welcomed our baby boy earlier this month and wanted to share the news with the TPF community. Come say hello to Baby Vaughn!

  1. I am interested in purchasing a LV neverfull that is a 2012. The vachetta leather is much lighter than I would expect. It has a little patina, but for a 2012, I would think it would be really dark. If it was not used much and kept in dustbag, will it patina much? Please advise me if you know. Thank you

  2. It will patina when kept in a dustbag, just slower as the bag is not exposed to direct sunlight.

    I would get the bag you want to purchase authenticated, either through TPF (the authenticate this thread, read the first page before posting! It requires a link to the item) or use a paid authentication service before purchasing the bag.

  3. Are you sure this bag is from 2012? From your pictures it tells me otherwise, have it authenticated before purchase.
