    Default Hermes Amazonia Garden Party needs TLC and expert advice...

    I'm so happy to have found this forum! I have an Amazonia 'leather' bag and took great care of it for as long as I could but when I ran out of wipes and couldn't find more it's just gone downhill.

    Please if anyone can walk me through a refurbish, I would love to make this bag beautiful again!Name:  IMG_3933.JPG

    A complete restoration to the aniline leather would need this Kit-A7.cl

    Thank you Robert, I am interested in pursuing. The buffalo leather of handle and stripe and bottom is in good condition and I do not wish to refurbish that at this time. As for the rubber Amazonia coated material, Is this very hard to do? And will it retain the moisture or do I need something else after refurbish to keep it conditioned?

    >>> As for the rubber Amazonia coated material, Is this very hard to do?

    Looks like there are cracks that need repairs.
    Such repairs are done with a combination of Bond-3D, Bond-7A, Stucco-90 and Bicast-32.
    However, in order for the repairs to stay good Degreaser-2.2 > Rinse-3.0 is done first prior to repairs.
    The sequence of repairs and refinishing is similar to repairs of any other surfaces only difference is the products being used.


    >>> Is this very hard to do?
    If you have being doing such repairs and refinishing to other objects, it would be just as easy.
    Or you have hidden talent waiting to be discovered.


    >>> And will it retain the moisture or do I need something else after refurbish to keep it conditioned?

    Only on a leather based that will need Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 system.
    There is no necessity if the based is of fiber material.
    The rubber-coated material will have a lifetime of its own and as all the plasticizers evaporate the material becomes brittle and disintegrate.
    A refinishing coating with Adhesor-73 > Bicast-32 > Bicast-76 > BicastTop-76G > Protector-B+ seals the existing material and may helps to prolong diminishing ‘plasticizers’ for another useful life cycle.

    Will walk you through when you decided to go ahead with this project.
