The cleaning and restoration of a handbag: Ferragamo leather handbag

Ferragamo clasp top rightLeather handbags can often take a beating.

Take this one and a half year old Salvatore Ferragamo mauve-pink Kimberly handbag.

The handbag exhibited heavy soil and scuffing. And the interior lining was heavily stained with ink, oil and makeup.

We started by hand cleaning the interior lining and removing almost every trace of the ink, oil and makeup. Next, we hand cleaned the exterior of the handbag, removing all the soiling. Finally, we removed all traces of the scuffing by refinishing the leather to a near exact color that we formulated especially for this handbag.

Voila! Another handbag restored to like new condition.

The following before and after photos reflect that transformation:
