Hello,

I was taking a look at my bag and found a big scratch on the front (please look at picture for reference). Ok, it might not be a very big scratch, but compared to a superficial surface scratch this seems pretty big. Does anybody have experience with making scratches like these look better or so that the leather won't peel off in the future? ImageUploadedByPurseForum1408402816.928047.jpg

I don't have personal experience with scratches like these but I read on the forum that conditioning the bag helps with scratches.
The conditioners that are usually mentioned are: Apple leather care and meltonian.
Hopefully, somebody with more knowledge will stop by and help out.
You can maybe show the scratch to your cobbler and see if they can fix it?
If not, try looking for leather spa places in your area.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

No not yet. Leather spa is unavailable in Chicago. I'm think of buying one of the conditioners, but sure as of yet.

docride has a reference thread on leather repairs in the Hermes forum that you may be interested in
please go through it before you start conditioning your leather yourself to save yourself from possible tears and heartbreaks
