We've cleaned & restored some amazing Hermes Birkins over the years. Here's a collection of exotic Crocodile Birkins that each have diamonds encrusted onto the hardware. These are super rare bags and we've loved working on them.
A very common problem we encounter with Birkins is wear & tear on the bottom corners. As the bag is used the leather scuffs and slowly loses it's colour. We match the colour precisely before carefully hand colouring the damage.

Here we have carefully restored the faded colour in this vintage croc Hermes Kelly. The black leather has faded and become scuffed in areas along the strap.
Before restoring the colour we applied a strengthening agent that soaks into the damaged leather helping to re-strengthen the weak areas. This will make the leather last longer once restored.
