UV rays are often absorbed causing degration of dyes and pigments on bags. i.e. fading, discoloration.

I'm curious as if anyone used UV "leather" sun protection on their Balenciagas to prevent the color from fading due to sun and florescent light exposure? One type of leather protection i've found is the Collonil WaterStop & UV Protection spray (http://www.amazon.com/Collonil-Wate...8WBSGE6/ref=pd_sim_misc_3/179-3069635-4195416).

If anyone has used something like this? and what are your results?

Yah I am very curious as well.

Reading from this forum post: http://forum.purseblog.com/balencia...ver-used-collonil-on-b-bag-before-509727.html

Seems like Collonil brand is really popular for Mulberry handbag, however people seem to have mixed opinions on Collonil products on their bbags. Some people have no problems with the product but others have claimed it left the bag 'dull' looking. Yikes! :sad:

Too scary!

I wonder if there are other leather-sunscreens out there, the concept sounds awesome. :smile:
Especially for bbags with vibrant colors, which suffer from fading from usage/outside exposure (I suppose florescent lights as well, so your office and home). It saddens me that the only way to keep the color vibrant is keep it in your dust bag in your closet. There has to be a way!
