    Question Cracking of leather on handbags

    Has anyone experienced the leather on their handbags getting dry and starting to show cracks

    two of my handbags: Cynthia Rowley clutch and Brahmin snakskin handbag are both showing hairline cracks in the leather and they look extremely dry. The bags have been used a handful of times at most, and are stored in their dustbags inside a wardrobe

    I am really upset about it and i am not sure what i can do. Will some kind of leather conditioner help? any suggestions?

    They probably need some leather conditioner. Since leather is really skin, it gets dried out, especially since it's no longer on an animal. Just think about our skin - we need some lotion when it gets dry. I hope it will help!

    Gees, that sounds frustrating. I would definitely pick up some leather conditioner, as soon as possible so the problem doesn't get any worse

    Definitely buy some leather conditioner, it'll help!
    For every fake bag you buy, you're supporting terrorism, child labor, and other cruel things.

    Brahmin baby loved the TLC and totally recovered.

    Me thinks, the Cynthia Rowley baby needs multiple at home spa treatments to become healthy again!!!
