Open for Vintage: How to care for your vintage Louis Vuitton bag

Written by OpenForVintage on . Posted in Fashion, Fashion, News

At Open for Vintage, we believe in extending the lifetime of high quality goods that were made to last. As a long-standing favourite for vintage collectors around the world, Louis Vuitton epitomises luxurious fashion that is both durable and timeless. 

This guide offers care tips for looking after your vintage Louis Vuitton bag, from the iconic coated canvas to the Epi leather, ensuring your handbag is kept in prime condition for as long as possible. 

By taking care of your vintage Louis Vuitton bag, you are not only preserving it for later wear, but you are also future-proofing your piece in case you chose to ever re-sell, continuing to contribute to the circular fashion process.

Explore the Open for Vintage care guide for your vintage Louis Vuitton bag below.


Coated Canvas, the fabrication used on Louis Vuitton’s Monogram and Damier lines to name a few, is a cotton canvas simply coated with PVC. Lightweight and durable, the coated canvas is renowned for it’s scratch resistant and waterproof qualities.

To clean your coated canvas Louis Vuitton bag, Open for Vintage advise a gentle leather foaming cleaning solution that will remove stubborn dirt and stains, without impacting the coating layer. It is advised to repeat this process every few months. To keep the interior of your bag cared for, gentle antibacterial cleaning wipes can be used to remove surface marks and stains. 

It is advised to always store your vintage Louis Vuitton in a dustbag, to protect the fabric from damage and dust. 


The Louis Vuitton Epi leather, which is a natural leather tanned with plant extracts and deep dyed, is used across a lot of the brand’s handbags and small leather goods. After the leather colouring process, a grainy surface is applied to the fabric, which creates the two-tone, textured effect. With it’s reputation for durability, a scratch-free surface and the ability to withstand all weather conditions, the Epi leather is a popular choice for those that seek a bag that will last.

To care for your Louis Vuitton Epi leather, Open for Vintage advise using a leather protector spray or cream. By applying this regularly, you can protect your bag from day-to-day stains, dye transfers and liquid spills. Should any stains occur, using a gentle anti-bacterial cleaning wipe is advised.

It is advised to always store your vintage Louis Vuitton in a dustbag, to protect the fabric from damage and dust.
