I first went about cleaning and removing and ink or lipstick stains inside the purse. I also went over the outside with our specialized cleaning solution to remove any oils and dirt.
Here is a good shot of the worn corner edges of the purse.
Here is the purse after redyeing. I reattached the strap which was cleaned and dyed separately.
Here is the same corner shot after the redyeing process. Almost like new.
Finally a closeup of the buckel. Although we can clean and redye the leather and make it like new, if the metal parts of the purse are chipped and scratched we won't be able to fix that.
In these tough economic times, it is more prudent to have your fine purses restored than to discard them and buy a new one. This service takes a lot of skill and I take pride in the fact that we are among the best in the industry.
