Tory Burch Purse Restored

This Tory Burch leather purse was mailed to me from Florida.
 It was worn and needed a cleaning and redyeing.

Here is the front and back before restoration.

The edges were ruffed up and soiled.

Although soiled the leather had not worn thin as is common with alot of older purses.
I knew it would clean up and redye beautifully.

The straps were starting to ravel on the edges. There were ink marks and stains.

Here is a closeup of the straps where the glazing was coming off.

Below are the finish results after cleaning and redyeing.

Yellow is one of the most popular colors. I was able to match it with no problem.

Here's is a good shot of how well the edges looked after refinishing.

The straps cleaned up well and I was able to repair the loose glazing.

One last picture before I ship it back home to Florida.

Purse Cleaning and Redyeing

Here's an example of the dramatic transformations that can be achieved by cleaning and redyeing leather purses. This green purse was thoroughly worn and dirty.
Some might say it was ready to be discarded.

The customer wanted to salvage it and having seen my work,
asked me if I could restore it.

Although heavily soiled, the leather was still in good shape.
I feel confident that I could achieve a good result.

Below are the amazing pictures after cleaning and redyeing.

 I went with a more vivid green, which was a natural fit for this purse.

It turned out quite well and the customer was very pleased.

Here is a closeup. I also polish the hardware.

It was like she received a new purse.

If you have a purse that needs an uplift.

I will reply with an estimate.
