Tod's Handbag Re-dyed

This Tod's handbag was mailed in to be cleaned 
and have it's color changed from white to tan. 

The customer had seen this style handbag online in tan
 and wanted to change her's to the same color.

White tends to show dirt and stains more than darker colors.
 Tan will not show dirt as bad and is a good color for this handbag.

This was a very nice leather bag. Other than needing cleaning
 and re-dyeing it was in perfect shape.

After cleaning and re-dyeing the handbag is now a beautiful tan.

Some handbags are difficult to redye 
because the of the way the factory finishes the leather.

This leather took the dye well and the finish was baby soft.

  1. You did an excellent job.. In fact it's so pretty that . I'm from charlotte but currently live in florida and since I know I'm coming home for the holidays I'd rather go through you than someone local..m. how long does this take ? ( i will be in town for 2 days), how much typically would it cost to get my tod's purse cleaned and re dyed the same color ( tan) ? It's in decent condition but needs a little tlc. Its a little faded in some areas and has a couple small saddle soap spots (on the exterior) and on the interior it has 1 or 2 light Bic pen marks maybe 2 inches long and a half inch long.. A ballpark guess-timate would be all that I want ..
