Introducing another Dove!  This bag was created from a Chantilly MM that had seen better days. The buckle strap was no longer in great shape, so I removed it and covered it up with braided fringe!  So much easier to open and close now, and super cute to boot!!

I've conditioned and dyed all of the vachetta black ... and added black leather braiding to the outside of the front flap.  I also added a hidden magnetic snap to keep all of your things secure.  This bag has got enough room for just the right amount of things, coming in at W9.5 x H9.8 x D2.5".  

The bag's monogram is in excellent shape!  The interior leather is clean, but there is some buckling on the top flap.  There is one small zippered pocket inside that contained very sticky Vuittonite (see below for description).  I cleaned out the pocket, leaving a soft flannel interior.  I replaced the strap with look-alike LV canvas strap that is adjustable from 30.5 - 53".  This bag's date code is VI0950 which indicates the bag was produced in France in May of 1990.  This is THE bag for the upcoming season, don't miss out!!!

Please note:  The fringe hangs down only 3" below the bag, but can be shortened if necessary.

 About Vuittonite:  Prior to 1997, Louis Vuitton lined many of its bags with a vinyl-like material known as Vuittonite. It was used (and patented) by Louis Vuitton because its resistance to water makes it easy to clean. Unfortunately, when exposed to high heat or humidity, Vuittonite begins to deteriorate and peel away from the edges of the bag. Over time, it becomes increasingly sticky, forming a residue (which, in extreme cases, is black in color) that transfers to anything placed inside the bag.
