I have a Mabel (larger size) that is a buttery cream/yellow color. I love love love the bag, but it has such wear on it that I never use it anymore. The straps are super discolored and dirty looking and it has a few scuffs on the front. Has anyone considered revamping/dyeing one of their bags? I’d like to dye it black, but my concern is what to do with the lining. If I dye the outside, should I just dye the lining as well? And if so, can I just use the same leather dye to do that?

Any advice is welcome!

Hello. I have dyed plonge studded bayswater... originally it was beautiful nude soft plonge with rose gold studs and hardware. I think somebody jumped into a lake with it and ended up horribly discoloured and stiff. I Dyed it black but obviously there is always trouble with the lining. :smile: at the end I got suede dye for the lining and although it did not end up as good as the outside at least it matches... there is quite a bit of info about dying bags- I would go with the fiebings pro leather dye as that soaks into the leather as supposed the paint that just sits on top.
