Anyone a Louis Vuitton "Expert"?

My beloved Aunt just passed away and my Uncle sent me her *almost* brand new bag and I have a few questions.

Anyone have any of these bags?

I have a few. What do you need to know?

ThePurseForum.com is really the best place to go for specific info.

Aww, thank you.

Does the canvas stay "stiff" for the life of the bag? Also, with time the handles will darken correct?

The handles will darken. I don't know if the canvas will remain stiff. Is it coated? If it is, it will probably remain as it.

As another poster said, the purseforum is a great resource to learn about your bag. The people over there really know their stuff.

I'm sorry for your loss. LV is supposed to last forever. What a nice thing to have as a way to remember your aunt.

I have a classic monogram canvas purse. The handles will definitely darken over time. My canvas has softened a little bit over a few years, but not much.

That purse forum has way too much info!

I believe the bags I have are the Cabas Piano and the Pochette. The Pochette has never been used and the tags are still inside.

Do I have to do something to the handles and bottom of the bag to keep them light? Purse forum is a little confusing.

I think they are supposed to darken. Its the nature of the type of leather used to make them. If u like them light, try googling vachetta leather. I think that's what the handles and bottom are. Maybe there are ways to help it stay light.

I always thought they were supposed to darken over time but on that forum people were using stuff to keep it light.

Thank you and I think so too. My aunt's nickname was "Cookie" so I have been calling my bag "Cookie"

I am so sorry to hear about your aunt.

I have one but mine is a 1990's French Company edition. The handles do darken.

Can I not use it when it rains? The other forum people said not to get it wet. I mean I wouldn't let it sit in the rain

You can use it in the rain but the vachetta gets rain spots. You can prevent this by spraying it with apple guard from leather stuff.
