Question ID# - 104
I have an exquisite collection of 1930's black suede handbags beautifully made and in excellent condition, except that the suede is bleeding, i.e. comes off like a charcoal smudge on your hands and anything they touch. Is there a way to stop the suede from bleeding? Please help.
The "bleed" is the actual color that was put into the 30s suede bags. Try
gently brushing as much of the smudge off as possible, using a suede brush.
Be sure you're in a well ventilated area. Then carefully begin to spray the
bag with hairspray...spray on a few layers, waiting till each layer dries
before spraying again. This should seal the suede and keep it from bleeding
