    Default Ideas?

    Hi everyone! I wanted to see what ideas you guys had about something. I lost my house to a fire almost a year ago and I was able to get one piece of my LV luggage out, which is a big garment bag piece. I can't use it anymore since it was in the fire and it's burnt black in some spots and the hardware is broken. So it's been sitting under my bed and I don't know what to do with it!!!!! I was thinking about maybe cutting it and using the fabric to make a new bag? ANY IDEAS?!!?!

    Could you take it back to Vuitton and have it repaired? Or, is it beyond repair?

    I am legally not allowed to. because my house was condemned that day we were not supposed to go back inside it. If I brought it there the insurance could possibly find out and we could loose all the money they had issued as after the fire...

    Hmm, I would take it to a leather cleaners. A place that specializes in fire restoration. I would not cut it up and make a bag

    Then I would have a friend take it to Louis Vuitton and send it in for repairs.

    I agree...

    I wouldn't make a bag out of it either.

    Sorry for your loss.

    Sorry to hear about what happened to you! I would have a friend bring it in. However, it's probably going to be pretty expensive. You might want to see how much it will be first, and then figure out if it would just be worth it to buy a new one.

    I'm really sorry to hear about your house. I hope everything is well with you...

    I would just try and have it repaired. I'm not sure how expensive that would be but I guess that's really the only thing to do, so it can be used again. Honestly, and even though you're trying to be creative and all but cutting it up and making a new bag probably wouldn't be a good idea.
