Hello there,

I have a vintage bag from the 1970's and I was wondering if you fabulous women have any suggestions on what to use on the cowhide leather on the handles and the trim (this is not vachetta) to keep it moist and supple. I took it out of the dustbag tonight and it seemed very dry and I don't want to damage it when I use it.

TIA!

Hello, our fellow TPFer docride has a wonderful Leather Care Thread at the Hermés forum. She has 35 years of experience on leather care, especially old cowhide Hermes & LV bags, saddles and gear (some 100 years old).

She answers all leather care questions, here's one on an old LV Speedy wreck: http://forum.purseblog.com/hermes-reference-library/reference-vintage-bag-nightmares-leather-care-info-295160-160.html#post14724570

Search her thread about "vachetta", there are more answers on this or just ask her.
