Handbag Restoration: How we can restore your handbag


Faded Leather

 

With day to day use the leather on your handbag can start to lose its colour. Some leather is dyed, which will fade in sunlight and some leather is painted which will wear off with use.

When this happens we use a machine called a spectrophotometer to take an accurate reading of the colour of your leather, we then produce this colour on our colour computer and use it to restore the colour to the faded leather.

Scuffs & Scratches

 

Some leather, such as calf and saddle leather will mark very easily resulting in lots of scuffs and scratches on your bag. Soft leathers such as lambskin can also scuff very easily, especially around the base and corners on the bag.

We restore this type of damage by using liquid fillers to soak in and strengthen the leather. This makes the leather nice and smooth again and at this stage we restore the colour to blend it in with the rest of the bag.

Badly Worn Leather

 

It doesn't matter how badly worn the leather is, how large your rip is or how rough the leather feels, if you've got a problem like this on your bag, chances are we've seen it before, and fixed it!

We've restored a Chanel handbag that was caught in a house fire, a Mulberry bag lost and found one year later in a field and a Hermes Kelly that was accidentally sprayed with an insect treatment that started to melt the finish on the leather.

Heavy Staining

 

Pen marks or the odd stain can be fixed under our cleaning & repair services. Unfortunately though, sometimes the staining is worse than this and can cover the entire bag or a large portion of it.

We've restored bags where drinks have been spilt inside soaking through to the leather, cooking oil stains splattered down the front of the bag, a bag covered in pen from an artistic child and many other types of staining that has covered the bag.

When we restore this type of staining, we firstly remove the stain, treat the leather and then restore the colour. We then protect the leather to help prevent future staining!

Sagging or loss of shape

 

Some bags are designed to stand up on their own but with use the leather starts to soften and the internal makings of the bag weaken. This causes the bag to lose its shape and fall over.

We fix this by opening up the bag and re-making the internal parts that provide strength and structure to the bag. If the bag needs additional support, we'll use our expertise to custom make a suitable part for the bag.

Exotic Leathers

 

When it comes to restoring exotic leathers such as crocodile, ostrich or snake we need to take a different approach to restoration as the leather is typically more delicate and detailed.

We have a dedicated exotic restoration team at our HQ that have restored some of the World's most expensive and rare handbags. We see many modern exotic bags from designers like Hermes and Nancy Gonzalez and we're the go to restorers for the Harrods Exotic Handbag Department. It's not just modern bags though, we've restored many crocodile bags brought back from Africa from our customers parents or grandparents from the early 20th Century. Check out our Exotic Gallery.
