A new client walked in the other day with her daughter's Marc
Jacobs turquoise leather handbag.
She explained that she had been referred to us by the manager of
a high-end department store in Scottsdale, Arizona.
After examining the handbag, I casually remarked that the
handbag was in relatively poor condition: water stained, scratched,
scuffed and apparently spray painted in a number of different
That casual comment opened the spigot to the story behind this
The handbag belonged to her daughter. Her daughter had called up
the store's handbag department seeking a referral for a handbag
cleaner. She was directed to a shoe repair facility in Tempe,
Two weeks later her daughter picked up the handbag. Although she
thought that the quoted price - $60 to clean the handbag - was
almost too good to be true, she was appalled with the result.
This is what she found...
When her daughter returned home, our client called the
department store's manager to express frustration with the result.
The store manager then referred her to RAVE FabriCARE.
The next morning, I visited the store's handbag department so

Moral of the story? 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.

backpacks that we've recently cleaned, please enter HANDBAG
CLEANING in the search engine at the top right of this page.
