    Default keeping patent leather away from other leather?

    I was hanging out on the kate spade site when i noticed this note

    please note: we suggest keeping patent leather away from other leather, patent leather and pvc items
    Why is that?

    I believe that in general, color transfer is very common with patent leather, so my guess is that the little disclaimer there exists as a head's up to customers so that if color transfer happens, they can't call it a manufacturer's defect. I know when I owned an LV vernis piece, it had something similar stated in the care card.

    Or maybe Kate Spade patent leather is just really snobby and doesn't want to associate with other leathers...

    A patent bag can stick to another leather bag if they get smooshed together (like in a dust bag together) and the color from the patent can transfer. I see it a lot with the bags in the clearance bin where I work. All those purses just casually stacked on top of one another.

    Thanks for the heads up ladies... I didn't know that this was a problem. I'm going to sort through my bags now.

    Well, I don't know about you, but real leather can be quite the snob.

    Also, patent leathers tend to leave white scuffs when rubbed together sometimes.
