    Default Water Damage on Leather Marc Jacobs

    My leather MJ bag (and I) were caught in the rain. After the bag fully dried it left tons of water spots. It breaks my heart to look at it now! I haven't tried treating it in any way yet. Is there any way to treat this? Is dyeing an option, and if so, has anyone tried it?

    Oh no! That's awful! I love the MJ Blake.

    You could dye it maybe a shade or two darker? I have heard good things about Terrago leather dyes, though I have never tried them.
    Good luck!

    ^Yep, ZG is right. Dying with that would do wonders. You have to put on a few coats though.

    Leather conditioner is good but it won't get out the water line. I had a red MJ with a water line and planned on using the Terrago dye but sold it instead.

    Oooh no, I'm sorry about the rain... If you do decide to dye it, good luck and keep us updated on the results!

    Not sure if a bag spa place can help, like Lovinmybags?
