  1. Hi

    I'm a newbie here and have recently bought LP Cuir. I'm just wondering how should I take care of this new baby?

    I happen to have Dubbin that I use for my other leather product, I'm wondering if I can use this for my bag as well?

    Also, I know that LC has a cream of its own but Coach's cream is 3x cheaper - I'm wondering if I can use it on this LP Cuir as well?

    Thanks for your answer in advance!
     
  2. I don't know what Dubbin is, but I use the same cleaner/conditioner on my cuirs that I use on my other leathers. I use a small amount of Blackrock's on the corners to hopefully prevent possible corner wear.
     
  3. I use the Longchamp recommended Saphir leather balm. It's cheaper to buy elsewhere, LC sells tiny bottles for twice the price.
    I give my Cuir a good slathering of Saphir every 9-10 months, that's all I do. If there's a stain, I remove it immediately using a baby wipe or a moist towelette, followed by Saphir. That's all I do.
    I love Cuir leather, it's so soft and tough. Am wanting a Mini at some point. :smile:
     
  4. Thanks for the answer! I guess then I can do the same thing with my Coach moisturizer :smile:

    I LOVE this Cuir too. I'm thinking of saving up for some other color as well :smile:
