As you know and we know, Coach is one the most expensive designer brands out there with millions of fans (Us included). If you want a leather item that lasts probably a lifetime, then the probabilities are that you have something from Coach.
While Coach has their own brand of leather care products which they recommend treating their leather with, should you find yourself in a situation where your Coach leather bag needs immediate care then these tips are for you.
Also, Coach uses a large variety of leathers for their products, ranging from suede all the way to crocodile embossed cowhide and calfskin. It pays to know the type of leather you are treating before you treat it.
Tips to care for your Coach leather bag
- Coach likes delicate, natural leathers. These possess a soft texture, are easily pliable, and very absorbent. Due to most of Coach leather being semi-aniline in make, treatment can be a little more taxing, yet equally rewarding. Smooth Calf, Soft Calf, and Glove-tanned leather all fall under this category. When you go to treat them with a conditioner or cleaner, you’re going to notice right away how quickly your treatment will penetrate the leather. We’re talking to the degree that it will spend almost no time on the surface at all. So use light, even portions of treatment at a time, and never apply more than can naturally absorb. Go gently.
- A similar leather that’s common in the Coach line is embossed leather. This is leather that’s been printed with an aesthetically pleasing surface pattern. Crossgrain, Pebble, Crocodile, Snakeskin, Printed, and Exotic are all examples of this. That's why we recommend to clean and condition very carefully with a clean soft cloth.
- We strongly recommend to only use Coach products exclusively for this type of leather because is unusually porous and vulnerable to stains but also Coach use haircalf and sheerling which are really unforgiving of oils and conventional leather conditioners.
Finally, it goes without saying but follow any leather care instructions included with your coach bag as well as you can. Be gentle with your leather and take the amount of time necessary to ensure that it’s getting safe treatment.
