    Default Tips on how to care for a colorful leather bag & preserving color

    I have a genuine leather bag I got in Italy a few years ago; the bag itself is a very unique shade of green(18 year old me was very into odd colors) and I'm noticing some wear now that I've had it for four years. Since it's a unique color, I'm not 100% sure on how to clean it or how to make sure the color doesn't fade. I don't use the bag much because the color is fading in certain places.

    Are you cleaning dirty, denim stain, etc? Have you ever just tried warm soapy water? I wouldn't try anything with chemicals in it like babywipes.

    It's not denim stained, I'm just worried about fading the color.

    Maybe ask a leather specialist on what options you may have? Hopefully you can find someone local willing to look at it.

    Have you ever tried Leather Honey? I use it on my Balenciaga bags to keep them from drying out and fading.
