    Default Louis Vuitton - Water Spots and Cracks on Vachetta leather Strap!

    Your products are great to clean up water spots.
    Awesome.
    I have a couple cracks on my Vachetta strap.
    I use the hydrator and fatliquor as instructed but the cracks are still visible and afraid it might break since the leather is hard and don't know how to soften.
    I have the brown removing Kit V3, and rinse/cleaner/acidifier/degreaser items also.
    Please let me know if there is something I can do with what I have.
    Also to remove browning, my result is very dismal compared to the pics you shown, please show me how to do it more effectively.
    Thanks for responding.
    Attached are pictures of the cracks, the last picture is of discoloration after I applied the hydrator and fatliquor.
    Thanks.

    Cracks:

    Any repairs to the cracks will produce a darkening effect and for “aesthetic” reasons it is better to leave it naturally in my opinion.
    The leather is too dry (diminishes fatliquor) resulting in stiffness and when flex leads to cracks.
    Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 will soften it thus prevents future cracking.

    Spotting:

    Since vachetta is natural unfinished leathers, spotting needs to follow up with the entire pieces or section completely going through the same process for an even appearance.

    See the below Vachetta Leather Problem Solving Guide. The steps have to be follow through as shown:
    Vachetta-2.8 > Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 > Protector-D
