Why You Need to Waterproof Louis Vuitton Vachetta Leather Before Use

The number one question that we get is how to protect Louis Vuitton's Vachetta Leather. Today we're going to show you the number one thing you need to do to keep your vachetta leather looking beautiful and stain free. It's super simple and takes just a few minutes to do! You will need our Combo Pack which contains everything you'll need to protect your face.


1) Pump Leather Protector into the Applicator Cloth, spread it around the cloth to ensure even application, and gently apply to the vachetta leather
2) Let dry
3) If you expect to be caught in the rain, apply a second coat for extra protection
4) Let dry and you're done! Your favourite Louis Vuitton bag is now ready to venture into the world!

To show you that our Leather Protector really works, we took the liberty of risking one of our favourite bags - the Noe BB - to show you why it is so important to protect and waterproof vachetta leather before use, and just how well our product works! We applied our Leather Protector to one side and then dropped some water on both sides - watch below for the magic!

You can see how the water droplets sat on the surface of the protected vachetta leather and rolled right off but it sank right through the unprotected leather! For this protection to be effective, reapply once every 2-3 months, and more often for heavily used bags.

For bags like the Neverfull, Alma, Noe, Speedy, Pochette Accessories and Pochette Metis where vachetta is on the handle, ensure you're not using hand cream before picking up the bag. With purses likes the Pochette Metis where the handle is small, you can always wrap a twilly or bandeau around the vachetta leather handle if you're really concerned about maintaining the vachetta leather.

For the Noe variations where the entire base of the bag is vachetta leather and without the little metal feet that protect the bottom, it is extremely important protect the leather - imagine accidentally setting your bag down on a table with water droplets!

Unlike other spray protectors that only waterproofs your vachetta leather, our Leather Protection also contains conditioning ingredients to nourish the leather without darkening the leather!
