We provide extraordinary care for fine

It's raining Kate Spade handbags. Dirty handbags, that is.
Over the past few weeks we've received a few dozen Kate Spade
handbags for cleaning and restoration - some from the
metro Phoenix area but most from
all around the USA.
In prior posts (click
here), I've demonstrated the results that can be achieved by
the careful application of skills, process and time.
Here we have an off-white canvas handbag with a yellow and green
floral print and brown leather trim.
Note that the yellow and green design is printed directly onto
the off-white canvas. This process is called surface printing or
top dying. The problem, from a cleaning perspective, is that there
is poor adhesion of the yellow and green dyes to the off-white
So, on the one hand, the handbag required a fairly aggressive
hand cleaning given that it was so dirty. On the other hand, the
yellow and green dye was "loose", necessitating a more gentle hand
In the final analysis, we achieved the desired result: a
perfectly clean off-white handbag with the yellow and green print
completely preserved and the leather
trim perfectly refinished to a nice brown color.
How can we help you?
