Ok, so I finally got the Soho Tweed Satchel in the mail the other day, and she was squashed inside the box! My poor baby! Now that I have gotten her out and stuffed her so she can "re-inflate," I have noticed she is a very VERY weathered bag. Her level of use was disclosed in the listing, but now I just need help nursing her back to health so she looks as good as her sister, Miss Soho Tweed Flap! Any ideas are TOTALLY welcome; I have never had to nurse a bag back to its former glory! I included some pictures so you know what I'm talking about. TIA!!!

1st off it looks like you've got a stitch missing from the bow, that's simple enough to fix. Now, the spot where there is wear on the flap...is that where there was sealent???

If so just search for sealent threads to get some advice on how to fix that yourself.

I know that Bag, Borrow & Steal does bag restoration, but IMO it's quite pricey, most likely more then you even paid for the bag!!!

Good LUCK!!!

The part that looks dirty is velvet or Suede? If it is Suede just take a file (one that is really soft and rub it. It really works I have do it.

There is a section that looks like the leather is worn is it leather?
