Hi guys, my husband accidentally dropped his Bottega Intrecciato leather cardholder on the road outside our home and it was soaked in rain for about an hour. Thankfully, we found it, BUT the cardholder looks really crumpled. Do u guys know how I can fix it? Thanks in advance.

Is it still damp? If so - perhaps putting between several paper towels and then putting a heavy object such as a book or something similar on top and letting it sit overnight?

Oh good - blot dry it with a clean towel to remove as much moisture as you can (you’ve probably already done that) - and then I would also recommend you put credit cards in the slots, carefully (obviously ones you aren’t using at the moment) and letting it dry that way - or else the leather may dry in this crumpled position.... We want to try to keep its shape.

The same thing happened to me with my celine cardholder and I can confirm that this method works! I wrapped it up with paper towels and put it in between heavy textbooks for a few days and it worked like a charm :smile:
