From past experience I just can't keep a suede bag because it is so high maintenance! My friend recently bought one and it is gorgeous!

Please share tips on how to maintain and protect your Chanel suede bags! Do those suede protectant work or do I need to send it in to get pretreated?

All experiences you share is greatly appreciated!
Happy Sunday :smile:

Thanks joansie! Vintage bags are the best! Have youi seen any suede ones lately? How do you compare it to your vintage ones?

Hi Joansie, were they flaps? How much did you use them? I have 3 LO's I am afraid it won't be such a great idea to get it! Did you ever have to clean any of them?
