After seeing my post of where I had re-dyed a leather jacket from tan to white, a customer wondered if I could change her white leather Chanel purse to black. Once I looked it over, I felt the purse would dye well. However, I was concerned about the leather intertwined within the chain link strap. I knew it would be extremely time consuming and meticulous to dye this part of the purse, but if she would be patient and give me the time, I was up to the challenge.
She chose to go with the color black so the purse wouldn't show stains as bad.
You can see several areas were extremely worn and stained.
The inside had two areas.
which had stained the inner flap.
Below are the pictures of the cleaned and re-dyed purse.
Notice the leather work woven in the chain. After it was dyed black, it presented a more formal look and accentuated the chain as well as the leather.
We decided to keep inside of the purse white. Everything else was to be black.
The work I did on this purse changed it from something possibly ready to discard into something ready to go back out on the town.
Do you have a purse that needs a new look?
I can help.
