This guide will assist you in the care and maintenance of your Coach Classic glove tanned leather briefcase, travel, backpack, messenger or handbag. If your Coach leather bag is properly maintained, it can last a lifetime. Many Coach Classic leather briefcases and bags are no longer made and are most sought after on eBay. Because of demand, Coach recently brought back some of the most popular classic leather bags, briefcases and travel wear.
I would like to begin with the Coach guarantee. It is important to note that Coach offers a fabulous guarantee, as long as the item is cared for properly. The following will aid you to accomplish this.
Coach offers one of the best guaranties around. Many are under the impression that it is a lifetime warranty, however according to Coach, their guarantee is for the natural life of the item, and only if the item is properly maintained, and nothing has been done to void the Coach guarantee. If you have any question in reference to the Coach guarantee, recommend you inquire with Coach.
Coach classic glove tanned leather briefcases, backpacks, large travel bags and handbags are easy to care for.
Use these products on the finished leather only. Apply with a clean soft white rag or cloth. The cleaner should be used very sparingly. Apply the moisturizer liberally, at least twice a year or more if needed.
Hot Tip: If you are uncertain what type of leather bag you own, refer to the inside Coach creed, it will tell you the materials used to manufacture the bag. If the Coach creed is hard to read, contact Coach for cleaning instructions.
Most folks are under the impression that you can get out ink, grease, oil, or makeup from their Coach bags. Because Coach bags are unsealed, and the leather breaths, much like your own skin, these stains are not removable. According to Coach, if your bag has any of these stains, the best method is to do nothing. Over time these stains will blend into the leather and become less evident as the leather ages. Any attempt of removal will only damage the leather.
If your bag is unlined with the back of the Coach leather, Coach recommends not to use any products to clean. What I find works well is a good shake out and a small vacuum cleaner to remove unwanted debris, like dust and dirt. If your bag is lined with ballistic nylon fabric, a clean damp lint free cloth works well to take off most marks.
Coach offers a fabulous repair service. Just take your Coach into your local Coach store or send it to Coach Repairs.
If your briefcase or bag is in need of repair that will require new piping, which is the edging of the leather, you can send it to Coach Repairs.
LOOSE STITCHING / BROKEN ZIPPER
If your briefcase or bag is in need of a repair that will require a needle, like a broken zipper or loose stitching, you can send it to Coach Repairs.
If your hardware is brass or gold in color, you can use any good quality brass cleaner like Brasso Brass Cleaner to shine it up. Brasso can be applied with a clean soft white cloth, or for smaller spaces, try a cotton ball or Qtip.
If your brass or nickel turnlock or d-rings are tarnished or scratched and you wish to replace, Coach provides free replacement brass hardware for many leather briefcases and turnlock bags. They are simple to install too, all you need is a small screwdriver.
