How to Remove Scratches from a Leather Bag

We’re eager to demonstrate how to remove scuffs and scratches from leather bags. With a little bit of attention and the right products, you can easily extend the life of your bag and keep it looking great. If you have any questions or comments during this video, please ask them in the comments section below. I enjoy getting back to as many of those as possible. In today’s video, I’m gonna be repairing my favorite briefcase.

You can use these products on almost any large leather accessory from a briefcase to a piece of luggage, or a portfolio. There are 3 products that we have at from Saphir that are great for large leather goods.

Step 1: Apply Saphir Juvacuir

The first is the Saphir Juvacuir recoloring cream. The Saphir Juvacuir is a recoloring and repair cream used to recolor damaged leather. The formula’s similar to the Saphir Renovating repair cream but it’s more fluid allowing you to use it over larger areas. It’s great for more permanent recoloring of damaged leather. The Saphir Juvacuir of most fundamentally is just a formulation of pigments and resins. The pigments help add color and the resins help build up and re-smooth damaged leather surfaces.

Step 2: Apply Saphir Canadian Restorative CreamHow to Remove Scratches from a Leather Bag - Step 2

The Saphir Canadian restorative cream is a total care product specifically formulated for use on things like leather bags or leather jackets where it’s important to not have color rubbing off. It’s less of a recoloring cream than Juvacuir and more like a polish that you would use on shoes that’ll fade. So it’s not a permanent product. It’s a great product that’s gonna nourish, rejuvenate, provide a little bit of recoloring.

Step 3: Apply Saphir Renovating Repair Cream to Remove Scratches from Leather

After treating a bag with the Saphir Juvacuir, apply the Saphir Canadian afterward to help seal the product and prevent any color discharge. You can use it alone though when more permanent recoloring is not necessary.

Lastly, we have Saphir Renovating repair cream — a resin leather re-colorant that is meant for specific repair to small areas. The combination of resin and pigments allowed the product to fill deep scratches while recoloring. It’s exceptional for use in the corners of leather bags that are always the first to scratch and damage. Deciding which of these products to use as a function of how large and how deep the affected area is. For regular care, use Saphir Canadian. For permanent repair of scuffs and scratches, use the Saphir Juvacuir and the Saphir Renovating repair cream.
