  1. This is my 3 year old Speedy 30 in Damier Azur, which is well worn for 3 summers. The handles have some scratches but I think that adds to the story of the bag and I don't mind them. But I don't really like the darker stains inside the handles (second picture), I tried to clean it with magic erasers but these didn't get the darker stains out and are kinda drying. Is there anything else I can try, should I try a leather cleaner?

  2. I normally use a scent and alcohol-free baby wipe for frequent cleaning but you're handles are heavily soiled and have a dark patina - try using Barbara's Lovin' My Bags (it's designed for vachetta and won't dry the leather out) or maybe consider having it sent off for a professional cleaning service.

  3. You might also do the "Patina Champ" method. If you want to protect your vachetta from collecting dirt and sweat that rots your handles, you should get some Love Handles from No Sacrifice Bags on Etsy. They have kept my handles pristine on the underside where the worst damage occurs.
