Can I put Longchamp in the washing machine?

Yes, machine washing is one of the cleaning methods for Longchamp bags. Place the bag in a net before running the laundry cycle. Use 60ml (or 1/4 cup) of mild detergent, set the machine to a gentle setting - either “delicate”, “gentle” or “hand wash” cycle, and adjust the water temperature to “cool”. After the cycle, hang the bag straps up and let it air dry for hours. Finish the cleaning process by applying a layer of leather conditioner on the leather portions of the bag for extra protection.

What is the difference between Longchamp Le Pliage and Neo?

The main difference between Longchamp Le Pliage and Le Pliage Neo lies in the material and foldability. The Neo is made of thicker canvas material, making it hard to be folded up into a compact square size like the regular Le Pliage. Plus, the Neo lacks a snap for securing the bag’s shape once it’s folded. Although the Neo carries a shorter top handle than the Le Pliage, it provides the option to add a detachable strap to the sides for easy carrying.

Do Longchamp bags have serial numbers?

Yes, when you’re performing authentication, keep in mind that a serial number is one of the crucial elements that shouldn’t be missing on the bag. The serial number can be found on the white tag inside the bag. Compare the serial number with the one found on the plastic bag that wraps up your Longchamp piece to see if they match.
