Repair and Restoration
At Handbag Therapy our main service provided is our restoration service to as close to the original as possible.
Normally handbags have minor scuffs or stains or have loss of colour over time, our restoration service aims to clean any stains out using a gentle leather cleaner at first.... however this is not always possible as the leather absorbs the stains (ink, grease, alchol etc.) and requires a strong solvent based cleaner to strip out the stain which in turn can lead to a loss of colour in that area, this then requires colour work and normally includes some light colouring on the whole bag to blend in and freshen up as a whole.
The aim is to keep the colour and texture(feel) as close to original as possible but slight variances must be expected depending on the damage or staining this will all be discussed in detail upon inspection of the bag.
This service also includes any repair work that may be required if possible on such areas of the bag like zips, handles, rivets, hooks, bag clips, stitching and cleaning of lining.
Prices for this type of work vary and is priced upon inspection and the timeframe for the work to be carried out ranges from 4-6 weeks
At 41 Charlemont Street we also carry out a huge range of repair and restoration work on other items such as shoes, wallets and some leather jackets
