Coach Briefcase Restored



 Ever had that favorite Coach leather briefcase that started looking a little worn, stained and faded. 
You just don't want to get rid of it. But, you know it's not how you want to present yourself at the office.

I can fix that. I restore leather items.

Below is a picture of just that kind of case.
 This is how the briefcase looked when I received it.



Here is the briefcase after I restored it.


Before the edges were worn and faded.


After restoring the same edges are renewed and fresh.


Before I worked on the back of the case looked like this. 


After I worked on it, the back looked like this.

Now the customer has his favorite briefcase back just like new, 
at a fraction of the cost of a new one. 









Re-dyeing Qupid Brand Shoes

 I can re-dye all types of leather items. 

Here is an example of a pair of leather Cupid Brand shoes that the dye had started wearing off. 


Both sides of one shoe had places where there was dye loss.


Here is a good close up of the damage.

 

It was interesting that the other shoe did not have any dye loss.


Shoes can be difficult to re-dye depending on how they were dyed at the factory.

In this case, the shoes were receptive to re-dyeing.


I re-dyed both shoes to match. 

Doing just one is not a good idea because it is difficult to get an exact color match.


I recommended to dye these shoes a shade darker in order to best cover the blemishes from wear.

Once finished the shoes were like new. As you can see from this close-up. 


The cost to do this was around $20.

A lot better than having to buy a new pair of shoes.
