Hi my fellow Josephine wallet owners! Got this in February have you had this issue ?
I would try heating up the canvas in the sun or with a blow dryer then unbuttoning it, laying it flat, then putting something heavy on it until it completely cools.I just wanted to share my 3.5 year old Emilie wallet. Pics are attached. The front flap has curled on mine A LOT. I tried putting heavy books on top of the flaps in hopes of it straightening out, but it didn’t work. Everything else about the wallet is fine, like the credit card slots, the leather button and pull, glazing is ok. I’m not very happy when pulling out this wallet anymore. I’ve seen the Emilie wallet on Kijiji and consignment sites, and they’re almost always curled or it’s getting there.
The reason why I decided not to sell it is because I got it heat stamped with my initials and that the flaps are curled. Who would buy a wallet that doesn’t look good with someone else’s initials? I thought I would want to use this wallet forever because I loved everything about it when I purchased it.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that whenever I open the wallet, I always open it from the button and not the flaps!
very nice congrats.I just purchased this Louis Vuitton Emilie Wallet preloved. It’s a 2017 model and in very good condition apart from slight colour coming off the button which I might have repainted. I got it at a bargain because it had personalised initials in it, but I removed most of that by using lotion and a toothpick to scratch the gold initials off. I’m very happy with it because it’s a long Wallet but nice and slim.
