i would prob go for the darker patina cuz i would worry about a tear spreading, but i guess it depends on how the patina is...

if you get the one with the patina, you can get the vachetta replaced.
I don't know what repair can be done on the canvas.

I would definitely avoid the ripped canvas purse. Go for the darker patina purse if the monogram canvas is in good shape. You can always get the vachetta replaced for a fee.

I'd go with the dark patina then try to clean it with wipes/magic eraser + leather conditioner after. Besides, I think the mono line looks better with a patina anyway :smile:

I think the darker patina bag actually looks lovely - the torn canvas can't be repaired. You can use the other bag and not worry about it or spruce up the vachetta with baby wipes or magic eraser. At the right price it could be perfect!
