Stuff happens. The lining of your favorite handbag gets soiled
from general usage and stained by a leaking cosmetic, an uncapped
ink pen, a spilt beverage, etc.
In most cases, these soils and stains can be removed through
On occasion, however, the accumulated soil and/or stains are so
heavy that no amount of hand-cleaning is going to return the lining
to "like new condition".
Maybe it's time to consider replacing the lining.
This was the dilemma faced by one of our clients whose
once-gorgeous white Chanel leather handbag had deteriorated due to,
let's just say, inattentive usage.
It just happened that our client is a frequent visitor to New
York City. She decided to take her handbag with her and to discuss
the cleaning of her handbag with the Chanel cleaning/repair
specialist at Chanel's 57th Street branch.
There were some major issues:
The Chanel cleaning/repair specialist's verdict was predictable:
it was highly unlikely that the handbag could be restored to
anywhere near "like-new" condition.
A few months later the client stopped by our facility to drop
off a formal dress for cleaning. After seeing all the cleaned
handbags waiting for collection by other clients, she announced,
with some degree of excitement: "I've got a project for you. I'll
be back in an hour!"
She returned with the white Chanel leather handbag.
After examining the handbag, we informed her that we believed
that we could restore the exterior. The lining, however, was
another issue. The likelihood that we could achieve similar results
with the lining was remote. We suggested that she consider
replacing all the interior linings with a white, heavy duty duck
cloth (we have white, cream, natural and an array of other colors
in stock). Furthermore, she would not lose the Chanel leather logo
and the original Chanel zippers and zipper pulls.
Two weeks later, we had completed the project. The before and
after photos reflecting the transformation can be seen below:

By the way, if you're looking for a handbag cleaning specialist,
please remember this: All handbags, purses, wallets and backpacks
should BE CLEANED by hand, never BY MACHINE. And, then, only by a
cleaner who specializes in these accessories. And, the only way to
ensure that the cleaner does, in fact, specialize in these
accessories is to make sure that the cleaner has a FULL TIME
handbag and purse cleaner ON PREMISES.
RAVE FabriCARE is the only cleaner in Arizona, and one of the
very few in the USA, that employs a full time handbag cleaner whose
sole job is to hand clean handbags, purses, wallets and backpacks.
Unlike other cleaners, we'd never clean by machine and we'd never
send your accessories to outside third parties for cleaning. That
way we're able to deliver the very best technologically achievable
results and return your items, in most cases, in a week and a half
to two weeks.
RAVE FabriCARE serves clients throughout the USA, Canada and
Mexico through our
Nationwide Clean By Mail service. We are, literally, as close
as your front door.
