Hi,
I have a red epi sablon. The underside of my handles must have gotten wet from my sweating palms and turned dark and lost the shiny luster. Is there anything I can do now besides having the handles replaced? You can't hardly see because it is on the underside, but still... Any tips or advice? Thanks.

Hello, I just purchased a Red Epi Jasmin bag for my mom...
I was wondering if anyone has owned and used an Epi bag extensively...

do the handles turn black or get noticeably dirty?? Thank you very much!

i think that all depends on how you use it KWIM??? i have a +10 year old red epi bag that looks like new with no dirt marks but it is just well loved and protected lol but epi is very durable so you should be ok, maby have a look on the bay for used red epi bags to get an idea of how they age HTH

You have to be careful with lotion, heat, and your own sweat from your palm or arm. I have a red eip whose handles have turned black where the handles touch my skin. I used in the hot weather and my arm got so sweaty that it ruined the underside of the handles. You can't really see unless the handles hang down on the sides of the purse.
