Forgive me if this topic has been brought up b4. How many of you have had purses that dry rotted? My mother had a Gucci from the late 80s, maybe early 90s. She wore it few a couple years then stored it away in her closet with the tissue paper stuff and the dust cover. I took the purse out and carried it back in 2001. I wore it for a night out and put it back. The next day she was yelling at me asking what did I do to her purse. Turned out the top layer just peeled off like dry skin. The back side that rubbed against my pants was the most damaged. She gave the purse to Goodwill. In the couple days I have been on this forum I have grown fond of LVs. How does that monogram canvas hold up? What can be done to prevent dry rotting. Do purses need to be kept in cold storage like fur coats?
