I got my pre-loved sky blue twiggy from ebay about 2 years ago, and carry it with a lot of cautions. However, start from months ago, my hubby told me the leather is dry and maybe we should moisture it a little bit, and I also noticed the color of the top part of the bag is so different from the bottom (or the mirror) part, that's why I start to search self dye at TPF.
After some study I got Tarrago self shine product online and tried to DIY at home. But before that, I ran a little test on the corner of the mirror leather (check the pic I attached below). We noticed the color was like a 'coat' sit on top of the leather -- it just cover everything including the veins. It looks like it change the texture, and even the tassel changes.
Now I am a little hesitate to apply this self dye stuff on the whole bag -- I don't want it change to a different bag!
Now I read about LMB and Barbara, and will shot her an email tonight, but would also to hear some advice from you wonderful ladies!
This bag has a dark handle and the top part of the bag discolored a great deal -- a handle clean job and leather conditioning are needed of course, but, do I need a re-dye job in this case?
