    I got that old keepall from a friend. It's leather is darkish brown already, and I was wondering if there was any way to get the handles to look light colored again, cuz I like them light mor than dark...

    Any suggestions? I was windering about using normal bleach but wasn't sure...

    Bleach sounds like a really bad idea! :shock:

    Your only option is to take it into Vuitton and have them replace the vachetta leather trim. But be forewarned that that could run upwards of $400!

    My, wouldn't it be smarter to buy a friend a new bag?

    Thank you, street!

    And, yes, it does make more sense to buy a new bag. I don't know how Vuitton figures these prices out!

    :lol: no one knows how designer's figure our prices... like 5000 euros for a Gucci jacket, that is maybe the ugliest thing I've ever seen... I'd persoanlly get a Birkin for that price...

    I like how the handles look as new.. but I also like how the handles start to darken with use. Adds a little charm, IMO.

    Too bad LV bags aren't like PCs or Used cars.. you can just trade them in for credit towards a new one. ;)

    I like the color of the handles better when they are used and have the tanned/honey color.
    actually, I don't really like the color of new handles :lol:
