    It looks like this a fairly common problem with this particular bag and the stores already know about this issue. This is happening around the folded corners of the bag and frequently used areas, they just do not hold up very well and begin to peel after minimal use. I would suggest returning the bag to the store for either your money back, a store credit, select another bag, or contact the manufacturer seem to be your options.

    Best to you.

  • If the bag was not to expensive I would not bother. Faux leather will keep peeling. Another option is to try and match the color and stain the fabric so it is not so obvious.

    I agree, I don't know if it is worth it because once it starts, it will keep peeling However easy little fix is finding markers or paint that you can touch it up. Touch on a little adhesive so it doesn't keep going too quickly.

    Hello all my friends,

    I have not had this problem before, but decided to try Nail Varnish. Only problem is the handbag is a very pale primrose yellow, so although it seems to

    stem the problem, I have yet to find the right colour! Pale Primrose Yellow!!

    You can get a leather repair kit at an automotive store. They are fairly easy to use and have worked great when I used on a seat. There's a decent color variety so you should be able to get it matched.

    Clear nail polish where it's started peeling or liquid super glue. Just a temporary fix

    I found this info for you but could you contact the mfg and send photos - maybe they will replace or repair it. It never hurts to ask
