How do I clean my Monogram or Damier canvas bag?

Taking proper care of your Louis Vuitton product will allow you to fully appreciate its beauty for many years.


Monogram and Damier coated canvas can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth and slightly soapy water. If your lining gets dirty or in case of superficial stains, we recommend that you wipe it with a soft and light-coloured cloth.

Some natural marks or genuine irregularities in the leather may show through on the natural cowhide leather. Over time, this delicate leather, which is sensitive to scratches, will acquire a beautiful patina.

Home remedies and cleaning products such as mink oil, perfume, leather lotions, cleaners or chemicals, should not be used on your canvas product or its leather parts. The use of such remedies may damage your item or cause adverse and premature wear.

Care advice

Avoid contact with greasy substances, cosmetics, perfume and hydroalcoholic solutions, as well as any material (magazines, other leathers, etc.), as contact with highly pigmented materials increases the risk of colour transfer onto the canvas. Light coloured canvas such as Damier Azur is the most susceptible to such impact. Beware not to scratch or rub your product against abrasive surfaces, especially the leather trim.

Keep your product away from water. Should it get wet or dirty on the surface, dry with a lint free, light-coloured, absorbent cloth. Never use solvent.

Storage tips

To preserve the shape of your product, it should not be over-packed. When your product is not in use, it is best to store it in the felt pouch provided at purchase in a ventilated area. Storage in boxes is not recommended as it has a drying effect on the materials.

Keep your product away from damp or humid environments, and avoid direct exposure to sunlight; keep your product away from any direct source of heat (radiators, car interiors overheated by the sun, etc).
