Does Louis Vuitton offer a warranty on their repairs?

Louis Vuitton do not have a warranty on their items. As such the company do not offer a free repair service for items that have succumbed to stains, cracking, deformation or structural damage.The other thing to note is that the company do not offer a repair service for cracked canvas or vachetta leather, which is one of the more common problems we see on the Louis Vuitton bags we repair.

What is the Louis Vuitton repair policy?

The only circumstance in which Louis Vuitton will offer free repairs (or a replacement bag) is if the item has manufacturing faults. This is usually determined on a case-by-case basis. Louis Vuitton shop assistants might also use the words “covered by warranty” and “eligible for repair” interchangeably so ask your store to elaborate on their policy before purchase.

Do Louis Vuitton repair handbags?

If you decide to get your Louis Vuitton repaired in store their prices will vary considerably according to the stores location. Like their warranty for defective items, Louis Vuitton repair prices are determined on a case-by-case basis. In addition bag will often need to be sent overseas for several weeks for the repairs to be carried out unless the work is outsourced.

Where can I repair my Louis Vuitton bag?

The best option is to use a professional leather service for your repairs. For example, most of our clients prefer to use our services as we can offer restoration of cracked vachetta leather as well as other standard LV repairs. In fact, we often get Louis Vuitton shop assistants bringing in work on behalf of their clients who appreciate the fast turn around and quality of local craftsmen.

What is vachetta leather?

The leather on Louis Vuitton bags is made from cows hide better known as Vachetta leather. This leather is typically used for the handles, leather trimmings, piping and zip tags. Unlike the monogram canvas part of the bag which is composed of cotton canvas treated with PVC, Vachetta leather is actually restorable.

How can I prevent vachetta leather from cracking?

While professional leather restoration is always an option for cracked Vachetta leather, prevention is always the best strategy. Be sure to condition the leather so the fibres retain their hydration and suppleness. Using a silicon-free waterproofing spray is also recommended to strengthen the fibres and prevent staining or discolouration.

How do you repair cracked vachetta leather?

The process we use for treating and restoring cracked vachetta leather involves several phases. Firstly the leather is cleaned and conditioned to soften the dry fibres. This is followed by refinishing / redyeing (depending on the extent of the cracks) to restore the colour and complexion of the leather. Finally the leather is remoulded with pressure to soften out the cracks and achieve a smoothed finish.
