Hi everyone,

I would like to present to you all my very first Hermes....my 1989 Navy Box leather trim II 35. But I have a question. The handle seems like it is creasing and cracking some. Do you think Coach leather moisturizer would work? I am also posting a pic of the handle.

As it ages it will inevitably dry out somewhat, moisturising the leather will always help a lot, it may take several applications but it won't hurt it, alternatively, you may want to send it away to the Hermes spa service.

Have a look in Docride's thread about leather care and restoration because you'll learn a lot there and it will help you make your decisions.

By the way, it's a beautiful bag.

congrats on your vintage trim!! in box leather they probably do not exist anymore..agree with Millicat, it does look like some cleaning, moisturising and polishing is in order to make it even more beautiful again..

Same advice here: ask to Doc!
And congrats: I think vintage finds are always very special and deserve to be loved :smile:
