I wonder if it might be color transfer from the previous owner's clothes? No idea on how to remove it though :sad: If it bothers you a lot, definitely return it. You paid good money for this and you need to be happy!

Chi-Town state of mind!
that's residue from the zipper due to it's age and being tarnish. you can just clean that with mild soapy water and a toothbrush. it'll come right off. As far as the price goes, that's subjective...only you know if it's worth that pricey you for a preloved in that condition. personally, I would pay that price if the vachetta is lighter. JMHO

The green looks like residue from the zipper itself. I believe you can clean it.
If the zipper and the handles bother you, return it! I personally love the color of the handles, but it is you that has to be happy with the purchase.

I know a few of the other posts commented on it being a colour transfer from clothing but I don't think so, see how the colour is only around the teeth of the zipper both inside and out? That makes me think that the discolouration is actually caused by the zipper itself (oxidization of the metal) and with that being the case it's very likely that other DA pieces may be prone to experiencing something similar since the fabric is so light. I would personally keep the bag since the patina is gorgeous and there would be no guarantee that a brand new DA piece wouldn't do the same thing.

I'd return it...$600 is a lot of $ for something you're not 100% happy with...good luck with your decision!

One poster suggested using mild soapy water and a soft-bristled toothbrush to pull up a bit of the staining

@onmymind24seven Suggested you try to clean it with mild soapy water and a toothbrush. I believe it might work :smile: just be careful not to get the handles wet.
