I'm sorry if this has been posted somewhere else, but I couldn't find it. I just discovered a dash of pen on the bottom of my Treesje Duchess. It is lambskin leather....does anyone know how I can get this out without ruining the leather? The bag actually holds up really well in the rain, but I was surprised to find this little "beauty" on the bottom :crybaby:

I can get pen out of bag lining but not out of leather. I just ruined a bag totally with a swipe of a Magic Marker. It was a Camel colored Coach bag. Made me sick. Not sure if Barb at LMB could get it out or not. It would be costly.

The leather is the Grey lamb leather. I haven't done anything about it yet. I'm going to see if it will buff itself out naturally :shucks:

In the moment
This is a tough one OP. I am so sorry! I have yet to be able to figure out how to remove pen.. Lamb leather is especially porous which will absorb the ink even more. The only thing I can suggest is barb at LMB.. which as lexi said, is pricey. If the pen mark is bad you could perhaps dye it...?

I hope you find a solution!!
