Have you tried collonil gel? It depends how bad it is if anything can be done about it

Calm down. This will happen and isn't a disaster. Just accept it as part of the bag. Enjoy it, don't baby it!

I'm sure you can get some gel in different shades, to help mask it ... Not sure where I've seen it, though ... Ordinary Collonil Gel should help, though. Any pics? X

It looks really dried out rather than scuffing, so a few coats of collonil a few weeks apart should really improve it :smile:
Hi Han, I think the pic is Fifi's bag, not daw's (she hasn't posted any yet?) I agree - the oakie looks as though gel would restore the corners (I better take a look at my sbs!) :smile:

I think woly cream comes in different shades (as well as neutral), not sure if that's what you're referring to? I've only ever used the neutral one, but I think others have tried the coloured ones on their bags.

I have used the woly cream on a silky snake Alexa where there was some scuffing. It is excellent. It nourishes the leather as well as conceals the scuffs. :smile:

Hmm, you'll need to be very sparing with any coloured gel (agree with Lady F that Cognac is the closest to oak, btw) as the bag is nicely aged. If you're not careful, it will be at odds with the rest of your Bays and you could end up with peculiarly dark corners! I'd probably be tempted to accept the rubbing as natural ageing and go with the neutral gel, which will enhance and nourish the leather without giving it the appearance of a fake tan! ;)

Only my humble opinion, though ... :smile:
