The cleaning and restoration of a handbag: vintage leather purse

Navy vintage purse handleMy client loves everything art deco. On a recent trip to Europe, she purchased this dark navy leather purse with a beautiful, art deco-inspired handle.

Unfortunately, the leather had lost it's suppleness and was badly scuffed, particularly along the side edges.

We removed the musty smell, cleaned the interior lining, softened the leather, and refinished the entire purse to a lustrous dark navy color.

The before and after photos reveal the transformation.
