Marc Jacobs Handbag Restoration




This Marc Jacobs handbag was brought in heavily worn 
and had ink stains on the inside and out. 
Since this was a favorite handbag of the owner, she wanted it restored.

As you can see from the close up on the left below
 that the ink had soaked into the leather. 
I was able to remove most of the ink and re-color any remaining stain.





The picture below on the left shows a place on the bottom of the handbag where an ink pin had leaked through. The right picture shows where I removed the ink and re-colored the handbag.

Kate Spade Handbag Restoration

 
This blue leather Kate Spade handbag was sent in for restoration.
 
 
The handbag had spots where the color was damaged
and the handles were soiled.

 
The edges were worn from use and the leather was drying out.

 
I cleaned, reconditioned and redyed the handbag.
Below are the pictures after the work was done.

 
The areas where the color was damaged were fixed.

 
The edges are now clean and redyed like new.

 
The texture of the leather is softer and the color restored.

 
The handles are now clean and refreshed.
 
My restoration service is a fraction of the cost of buying a new purse or handbag.
The process takes about 2 weeks.
