Hi All, I've come into possession of a vintage gucci bouvier bag...its totally gorgeous. I would guess to say its at the very least 20 years old and I know for a fact that it has been sitting in a drawer for the last six years. The problem is that the leather strap is very, very dry to the point where it is cracking. I'm petrified to use it because i don't want to ruin it. The strap is completely stiff to the point where it cannot be buckled, without fear of it just snapping in two. My question to all of you folks is what can I put on the hard leather to soften it up to the point where it might be usable again? The body of the bag is suede, and seems to be in good shape but the whole bag is pretty hard from lack of use. The only thing I have in my posession for leather care is some coach leather cleaner...but I'm willing to buy whatever I need to to get it fixed. I would rather fix it myself than take it someplace for fear of it getting lost/damaged further because it is a very very importaint bag to me! Please help!
