Bronzer explosion in Phoenix

A powdered bronzer "exploded" in a new client's Gucci Sukey black leather handbag with a natural canvas lining.

She told me that she had called four cleaners in the Valley who informed her that they would be happy to send her handbag to a leather cleaner out of state and that it would take 4 to 5 weeks.

As she was not happy to see her favorite handbag go AWOL for 4 or 5 weeks, she asked all of them for a local recommendation.

Apparently, every single one said RAVE FabriCARE in Scottsdale.

When she asked why, she was given two reasons:

1. RAVE FabriCARE is the only dry cleaner in Arizona specializing in bespoke, made-to-measure, designer, high fashion, specialty, couture and vintage garments and accessories.

2. RAVE FabriCARE is the only dry cleaner in the Valley that hand cleans handbags and purses in house and we could complete the work in approximately 1 to 2 weeks.

Our client picked up her Sukey handbag this morning. She was elated. The following before and after photos explain why ...

The original lining is a light gray color. The color after cleaning is a light gray color. Any variation in the color of the "after" photos is a result of the non-professional lighting at the time the photos were taken.
