How to repair scuffed corners on Radley Bag?

I have a black over the body Radley shoulder bag only a couple of years old, but the corners are really letting the bag down (white scuff marks) Any ideas what I can use to restore the bag? Thanks 🙂

Just an off the cuff idea! I wonder if a shoe dye could hide the scuffed corners. You would have to make sure it didn't transfer onto clothes etc. I have found over the years that the better and softer the leather, the more likely that the leather scuffs or peels. I bought the softest leather bag, very expensive, in Florence, a well known make available in London. Admired by many for its relatively short life. Tougher leather lasts a lot younger in bags and furniture.

I came on to recommend this shoe cleaner (Urad) to discover it is actually for bags and furniture too - it is not coloured like Skuffstuff, just works really well to prolong the life of shoe leather.

I use the mulberry leather gel on the corners of all my bags, doesn't work really once they're already scuffed but it really protects them. Sorry not useful for now but next time!

Black marker?

I wonder if black sugru might work 🤔
